THE BASTARDZ 6 - NEW ALBUM
THE BASTARDZ 6, the come-back album of the group The Bastardz, one of the founders of the Croatian modern, urban sound, has been released on Monday, 15/11, by IDM Music. The distribution will be done by the eminent Croatian record labels and distributing companies and will be available for digital download on the group's official web site.
Their promo tour already started yesterday in O Hara club in Split, and you can also see them in Omiš on 11/20, Zadar 12/11 and in Zagreb on 12/15. The tour will continue during the beginning of 2011.
The first single from the album, called "Hajde kaži" (Come on, Tell) is already rocking the radio playlists across the country and soon you will have a chance to hear the rest of the gems from The Bastardz 6. Besides the regular group members, the album hosted many guests and collaborators such as the world's funk legend Joseph "Joe" Bowie, one of the best trombone players in the world and the founder of the cult American group Defunkt and many famous female Croatian singers. A mellow mixture of different music styles based on funk, soul and jazz is once again a trademark of this, sixth in arrow Bastardz' album, and many critics predict it a notable success.

n.e.r.d. - hypnotize u (koolade remix)
Two weeks after the release of the long expected N.E.R.D. new album "Nothing", our producer Koolade created an awesome '80s-like remix of their first single "Hypnotize u". There is a possibility that Universal will release this as an official remix on iTunes and we strongly keep our fingers crossed. :)
Koolade is known as one of the best Croatian hip-hop producers and he has already worked with many famous international artists such as: Masta Ace, Ghostface Killah, Talib Kweli, Akala, Bow Wow, Omarion, Das EFX, Mizz Nina etc.

The National Went InterNational
The famous indie rock band The National is back in Zagreb this Sunday, November the 14th. This will be their third time in Zagreb and since their first Croatian concert in the club KSET six years ago, that they consider one of the most special concerts in their career, The National grew into one of the biggest indie rock bands in the world. This time, they will swap the charming, but rather small stage of the KSET, with the much bigger one, at the large hall of the "Bocarski dom Zrinjevac".
The National is currently on an international tour, having sold the concerts in London, Paris and Berlin. The album, which was released in May, won them a prestigious Q Award for the best album of the year and "High Violet" soon became one of the highest selling albums in the States. Considering their take-off, next time we'll be listening to them at the stadium! :)

banging in november
November is going crazy for Ed Banger Records! They signed the supercool electronic duo Cassius, their star Uffie is releasing her own collection with Diesel and a couple of new wicked OSTs have freshly landed in stores. Mr. Oizo & Gaspard Auge of the duo Justice wrote the music for the film Rubber, while the electronic magician SebastiAn created a soundtrack for the film “Notre jour viendra” directed by Romain Gavras (son of a famous director Costa Gavras, and the director of the Justice documentary “A Cross the Universe”).
IDM Music subpublishes the Ed Banger artists for the territory. We happy!
