Podgorica Festival a hit

The Electronic Beats Fall Festival got off with a bang with the first festival in Podgorica in Montenegro (read here more news about Podgorica). Some of the acts in the lineup were Disclosure, Mount Kimbie, and Retro Stefson.

The event was staged in a small sports stadium with not so great weather as there were a few rain showers.

Retro Stefson opened the concert with high energy from the eight-piece synth-pop group presenting music from their latest self-titled album which was released earlier this year.

Mount Kimbie, who also released their second album earlier this year, and are currently on tour in Europe and the USA, contributed to an already party atmosphere with soundtrack from the musical duo of Dominic Maker and Kai Campos out of London.

The sibling pair of Guy and Howard Lawrence, otherwise known as Disclosure, had a good-sized crowd by the time they took to the stage. Still only a few months after they released their debut album, the pair were eagerly awaited by the soaking-wet Podgorica crowd.

The Electronic Beats Fall series will continue with concerts in Zagreb, Croatia and Dresden, Germany later this year.

Sister Bliss goes “Faithless” again

sister_bliss
Sister Bliss has released her first solo album in a decade, more than two years after her former band Faithless retired. The album’s first single is Ain’t There and features vocals by rapper Fem El.

Faithless said adieu in 2011 with a farewell performance at London‘s Brixton Academy in April in a show that was beamed live around the world. The band was one of the biggest selling dance-music bands of all time.

Classically-trained musician Sister Bliss in the time since the band retired has relaunched the Junkdog label and hosts a syndicated radio show on Ministry of Sound Radio.

The DJ admits that moving away from the band has helped her find more time for things such as running her record label and collaborating with other artists.

And Sister Bliss says she uses the programme to showcase deeper underground house music including Psychemagik, Disclosure, and Visionquest as well as EDM music from Eric Prydz, EDX, and Jakwob.

Bliss and the Faithless crew reunited for a live set at Electric Brixton nightclub in London in May. The gig was in aid of Crystal Palace‘s youth club.
