The icon of the Slovenian club scene JAMirko and Murat together on the big stage of the Festival of Urban Culture Slovenia on 30th June on Congress Square with the project JAMU - JAMirko X MURAT BEATTAPE.
In the evening part of June 30th the programme of the Festival of Urban Culture Slovenia, the main stage at the Congress Square will host the famous Slovene producer, DJ and musician, the icon of Slovenian club scene and the creator of beat $ bass electronic JAMirko in various sets. First, at 21.00 hrs. he will present the project JAMU - JAMirko X MURAT BEATTAPE. Murat (Murat&Jose) will take over the role of communicator at the premiere JAMU performance and complete JAMirko's Funk Hop Beats set with his "beatbox" vocal skills.
JAMirko explained: "Over the winter, I set myself a task, to make in the studio each week one beat. Murat, with whom I am working lately together as DJ /Beatbox MC combination, accepted this challenge as well. We met every Wednesday in the studio and thus we collected material for a common JAMU BEATTAPE, the compilation of our little ideas, that used to wait in the computer for a chance to be completed and to come out. We are talking about titles of hip-hop aesthetics, with up to two minutes’ long, in which we sampled primarily funk, jazz and soul material from the 1970s.”
Murat: “I initially started making beats to rap over them. However, I couldn’t find suitable ideas for lyrics for all those beats, so there were quite a lot of them piling up. I also made them for the pure joy of the music. I used some of them for various projects, but most of them remained in the computer. Through JAMirko’s idea about a common "beat tape" I got the chance to bring some of my music to a broader circle of people.” Within the framework of this performance, on the same night of June 30th, at midnight a »free download« JAMU BEATTAPE will be published on https://soundcloud.com/jamirko
