EB: doviđenja Pg!
Posle Podgorice sa Jessie Ware, KateBoy, Moderat i lokalnom podrškom Deep Thoughts!, razuzdani Nemci najavljuju nove poduhvate... I dok je spreman line up za Leipzig (Asbjørn, Warpaint, Wild Beasts i Shura), neka se pripremi Zagreb!
Stadion malih sportova u Podgorici bio je mesto održavanja novog audio-vizuelnog spektakla sa posebnim akcentom na izvođače, miljenike mlađih generacija.
Prvenstveno je Jessie Ware oduševila sakupljenu urbanu ekipu, kojima ni kiša nije mogla da pokvari utisak, a nastavak putujućeg festivala Electronic Beats ponovo će biti blizu - u Zagrebu.
Posle Kate Boy, Moderat i Deep Thoughts (sa crnogorskog line-upa), zagrebački spisak predvode Erlend Oye i Patrick Wolf!

Leipzig line up:
While their music has long captivated those with a taste for arty psychedelia and dreamy pop, Warpaint have been heralded across the board following the release of this year’s self-titled LP. The Los Angeles four-piece combine high production values that nevertheless seem lo-fi, a fresh and youthful spirit for experimentation (the band have listed R&B as an influence on Warpaint), and a perfect knack for creating catchy melodies that function just as well as summer ballads as they do odes to wintertime longing.
Wild Beasts flirt with genres themselves, but if we had to describe the output from these UK boys, we’d probably settle on “the kind of electronic pop you wish more people made, basically”. And we do mean basically—the sounds coming from Wild Beasts are spartan indeed, but crafted together so cleverly as to be imminently absorbing. The key here is in the emotion embedded in each lyric: Tom Fleming and Hayden Thorpe’s ping-ponging vocals not only play well together, they act as two parts of the same—weaving in and out together, telling stories of love, lust and life. Expect to be moved.
Denmark’s Asbjorn keeps his sound firmly rooted in poppy electronica, but it, too, rests high in the emotional spectrum. The use of organic instruments such as full string ensembles could be the reason, but it’s just as likely to be the amount of heart the young producer puts into his melodies. With her captivating stage performance, British/Russian singer Shura is the perfect addition to Asbjorn’s delicate compositions. Her recent single “Just Once” evokes the hazy, broken innocence of early nineties divas like Paula Abdul and has seen her drawing comparisons to the impeccable Blood Orange. Turn the lights down low . . . this EB Festival is for lovers....
