Visiting the Jæger mix from Belgrade this week is Soul Print recordings founder and boss, Petko. We’re no stranger to the sounds of Belgrade and from local, DJ Sin to Tijana T and previous Te Dans visitor Akioki, we’ve sampled a varied palette from the Serbian capital from Disco to Techno.
Since 2013 Soul Print has been making a mark in Belgrade with House music. Through a collection of local Serbian artists – including the three founders Akioki, DJP and Petko – and European and US artists like Trinidadian Deep and LAAK, they’ve established a a sound of Deep House that borders the cosmic realm. The vinyl label offers a deep, explorative interpretation of the House music genre, staking its claim in the Belgrade scene and beyond.
As well as contributing to the label as a producer, Petko is a DJ that proliferates the sound of the label through his selections. His Jæger mix plays on the sound of the label, with a “jazzy”, cosmic propensity that calls to mind the likes of Marcellus Pittman and Theo Parrish (there might even be an edit of Night of the Sagittarius lurking in the mix).
Upbeat, melodic refrains play against wavering rhythmic arrangements with a dynamic approach to the mix. Pacing along at a reserved tempo this mix is something for the mimd, body and soul.
