FIL TILEN's PROVOCATIVE VIDEO FOR THE SONG "ŽIGOLO"
Only few days after it's YouTube release, the new single "Žigolo" by the Croatian hip-hop musician Fil Tilen became a true internet sensation with rapidly growing numbers of YouTube clicks. The proof that the entire world loves half-naked Croatian with the lizard eyes lies in the fact that the video has been viewed over 127 counties and over 200 thousand times in only 4 days.
The song "Žigolo" has been released by Croatia Records and the co-author of the song, besides Tilen himself, is the IDM's composer and producer Rei Noel. The guest star of the video that has been written and directed by the musician, is known Croatian journalist Rea Matas, who willingly accepted the role of a female gigolo, Tilen's alter-ego in the video.
One of the most popular Croatian composers, Tonči Huljić, also shows up in the video, playing the role of the main villain who tampers the young musicians to sign a contract for him.

ŠKOLJKA - NEW SINGLE BY DINO MERLIN
Školjka (Shell) is a song from Dino Merlin's upcoming 11th album. The song was written by Dino Merlin and Džemaludin Latić while produced by Dino Merlin, David Vurdelja (Baby Dooks) and Yoad Nevo. The song was recorded during 2013 in Sarajevo and London.
The video was shot in September 2013 in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. The director of the accompanying music video was Aladin Hasić, a well-known director from Switzerland who has already worked before with Dino Merlin when shooting the music video for Dino's 2008 song called "Deset mlađa" (Ten Years Younger). The video is produced so as to look like a cartoon depicting Dino driving from Sarajevo to the Adriatic coast while being chased down by relentless fans.
