DRUMMER / PRODUCER / DJ

http://www.stigaemusic.com

Georg Hekt is an artist of Bulgarian roots (born in Stara Zagora) who moved to Berlin around the Millennium. For almost fifteen years he has been composing and producing his own music, but he has played in multiple live bands around the world too. His instrument skills include guitar, drums and piano.

He has released many albums via his own netlabel Stigae Music and some tracks on compilations through other netlabels like Dusted Wax Kingdom and Mizukage. Many of his songs have been featured on radio shows and podcasts around the whole globe. Since 2011 he began releasing a series of EPs entitled ‘Circular Quadrant’ through DSQT which are now available on most digital retailers like iTunes, Amazon, soulseduction, mora.jp and more.

Not only did Georg Hekt start one of the first netlabels in Bulgaria for experimental jazz and trip-hop music with his friends Dr. Osmo and Oppidan, but also he was the first electronic musician to perform live in his hometown Stara Zagora (together with Oppidan) already in the year 1998. In the years after the Millennium Hekt performed on many more occasions – live or as a DJ. His main collaborators for live performances are Oppidan and Q-Daelic, both also main collaborators in composing and producing.

Except plain music he has also been composing and designing sounds and music for theater plays and other events like fashion shows.

RADIO GUY

SHAZAM is a DJ and a musician from Berlin. He is sometimes DJing with live musicians in a club situation, at other times he’s a live DJ with a band onstage. Or both. He likes music with three EEEs: Electronic, Eastern & Eclectic.

Andi Zant

working and living in berlin since 1997. as photographer,painter,musician,writer, doing installation and sculptures,and experimental design.

one of the core ideas going through my work is improvisation, based on proper research,thinkin,insight,connecting the visible with the invisble,looking into the nature of reality.i see myself in the tradition of art in that sense, that i think its important to question life,to think,and develope the
human abilitys on all levels and work for understanding and create awareness to the complexity simplicity and beauty  we can find on this planet.we are able to grow into a true human beeing if we can dream,and focus.everyone emerged from  the same source like anyone and anything else.as the latest researches in the field of quantum mechanics proove, behind the material world is a deep web of infinite relations in between processes throughout anything that is known so far. thus we have to give up the idea of a static knowledge,and the idea of a describable reality.

even more, multiple realitys have to be verified through observation,and accepted. talk in between subjective recipients is one way to find  a common ground. building reality.beein part of the  mysterios dream. to happen.in the end silence is a very easy approach. yet i like to talk in order to share .everyone can be student as well as teacher.

thus we are all really deeply connected, and need to be rememberd to our true nature,  the qualitys of understanding, sharing,and experience the bliss of human existence,and the love and complete acceptance of diversity in the cosmic creation the individual approach is limited not only by the sensory perception,but also through education,cultural identity,and subjective filters, that can block a wider perception of the general process and happening. its necessary to work for global peace,and a sustainable future with no exploitation and artificial boundarys. art is just one way to express this.
