A promoter of the underground culture, a DJ and a respected producer – Serbian-born Lag is the on the forefront of the new wave of techno artists.
Growing up in the turbulent Balkans he developed a unique outlook on expression, choosing electronic music to be the channel for his creative discharge. While the acquired punk influences and classical music education shines through his steady output, he doesn’t shy away from exploring beyond what he is most known for – gritty, rhythmical techno with attention-grabbing attitude. While Lag’s releases on MORD, THEM and Elements have put him on the map, his remix work and odd tracks released on various labels show diversity in what he is capable of.
Lag’s many DJ performances speak volumes of his ability to sonically engage his crowd, taking them on an intense journey: expertly curated and skillfully carried out. Through his DJ sets, as well as his other work promoting the underground culture (whether it’s through writing, organizing workshops or running club nights) Lag puts efforts into closing the gap between the “good” and the “known”. His undeniable quality and hard work quickly took him from playing local clubs to touring the world, making him Serbia’s techno ambassador and allowing him to spread the message which someone who lived through war and discord can best understand – a message of inclusiveness and unity.
Lag is set to stay on his current path as his mission, his initial vision, is yet to flicker. His ruthless determination is awe inspiring, 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.
