A promoter of the underground culture, a DJ and a respected producer – Serbian born Lag is on the forefront of the new wave of techno artists. It is easy to notice from his sound that he did not take the usual route on his musical journey. He grew up on punk, acquired a classical education in music and then quit it all to find himself enchanted by the possibilities of expressing oneself both through DJing and making electronic music. He chose techno to be the host for his creative discharge, while always incorporating a certain dosage of his previous musical life to his current work. Grit, rhythm and attitude are his main tools as he blends them in his music, creating a potent combination which enchants, moves and unifies.

Lag’s DJ performances on the Exit Festival main DJ stage, and the legendary Tresor club speak volumes of his ability to engage his crowd, and offer an intense sonic experience. Through his DJ sets, as well as through workshops and events he organized and promoted under the umbrella of his organization 29524, Lag puts efforts into closing the gap between the ‘good’ and the ‘known’. Since then his promotional activities have reduced, and his focus moved to delivering extremely functional DJ sets, but also on creating and releasing original music, mostly in the techno genre.

After several appearances and releases, predominantly on the Serbian label Teskoba, his remix of Grovskopa’s ‘Atopic’ is released on vinyl by Sect Records. He follows it up with his first EP named ‘Stutter’, a highly acclaimed release which came out on the notoriously uncompromising Singularity Recordings, and his latest output, a 12” release on MORD Records named ‘Misfit EP’, underlines the quality and uniqueness of his already recognizable sound. Lag is set to stay on his current path as his mission, his initial vision, is yet to flicker. His ruthless determination is awe inspriring, and is, along with his musical prowess, the main reason for his rising popularity. Lag is definitely someone to keep an eye on, but more importantly, someone to listen to. After all, as he frequently states, ‘it’s all about the music’.

We’re excited to add this up and coming talent to the series and he certainly didn’t disappoint. A mix full of power and energy, combining classic techno with modern interpretations to bring you a mix that’s entertaining, inspiring and energising all at the same time.
