What’s the highlight for you in Serbia’s music scene?
It’s hard to talk of a “music scene” in Serbia, but there are some small ‘artistic communities’, groups of people that interact, collaborate and generate some new stuff. The electronic scene is not very active production-wise, but when something comes out, it can be pretty good. The new project by Jan Nemecek and Piece of Shh under the name of Brickwall Brigade has a very tight and fresh sound, with a quite of an edge to it.

What is the low point for you in Serbia’s music scene? 
The termination of Belgrade’s Dis-patch festival.

Discovery-new artist of the year /in Serbia/?
The above mentioned duo Brickwall Brigade. A good merge of bass, techno and more dub-infused rhythms.

Personal tips and wishes and plans for 2012?
Lots of love, food and better sound systems!
