Back to Beach • VRTW / 10-11.08

Feel the Breeze & Taste the Beach,
Have some more Mojito!
Chill around, then have some fun!
Daytime VRTW music to go around.

www.vrtw.life

Residents: Alt Om & Bogdan Iorga
Guests: Bring'em on!

Back to Beach • VRTW
Daytime surfing with great vibes!

As usual, we're on for "curator mode" - vinyl lovers are invited to showcase some of their jazz / funk / soul / rock'n'roll records with us.

We invite you to feel with us, to play, to enjoy some energetic rum, to dance like crazy, to meet new people over a glass of great wine and to chill it out on the beach!

Listening to a vinyl record is a labor of love that brings people together. Analogue recordings are vibrant and dynamic, and they're the closest thing to having Jimi Hendrix sing before you.

For a few hours, plan to forget digital, processed, targeted, business driven, compressed sounds, and enjoy the music like it was meant to be enjoyed.

// Bully

Bully is one of the Romaninan DJs that has successfully created a bridge between underground and mainstream. Starting out around 2000, he conquered the dancefloors of literally all relevant clubs in the country. He likes to create diverse musical experiences for his public through a hyped up mix of different genres, from funky breaks & old-school hip hop to breakbeat & drum’n’bass and also local spices in terms of folk and… who knows what next?

He shared the stage with international names like Adam Freeland, Qbert, Deekline, Freestylers, Patrice, Dreadzone, Andy Smith, Ollie Teeba (Herbaliser), DJ MK (Roots Manuva), General Levy, Killa Kella, JFB, Ed 209, Kid Fresh & Ra K, J – Bass, Joe Le Groove, DJAZ, Africa Islam, JourneyMan Psycho – Freud, Subfocus, Technical Itch, DJ Ink, Temper D, Darko Stepic, C4C and many others; working with virtually all relevant DJs in Romania as well.

Since 2002 he was also a frequent choice for sports related events. Regardless of the season, he managed to hype the riders to the limit within memorable events, out of which we’ll mention: RedBull Flug Tag, RedBull Freakstyle, Burn Bowl Roackers, Burn X Casino, Burn Photo Raid, Mountain Dew CitySlide, Mountain Dew UrbanFest, Sprite Aggresive Inline Tour, Freeride Camps, Jib Contents and other snowboard, skate & bmx events.

// Alt Om

„I’m inspired by the life itself, the moment, the people around me. I like to play with a lot of genres because the most important thing for me is that the public feels as good as I do.” That’s what Alt Om (Vlad Roseanu) thinks about the game and that’s why his music is extremely diverse – from electronic to funk and disco or break beat, house and techno.

„I grew up with Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin and in my early teenage years I was listening to Depeche Mode. Now… I’m just fooling around in the big musical playground.” DJ and promoter from 2011, Alt Om grew up in an art-influenced home in Bucharest. Precisely this leaning towards arts made him pursue a career in music but also in graphic design, interior design and set design. And, without any doubt, this artistic perspective on life is reflected in his music.

He likes to be updated so he’s always digging for new genres and new music for remixes and mashups. That is how he gathered a large collection, extremely variated and there is no doubt that he will always make you stand up and dance. He was noticed shortly after his first appearances and requested for parties and festivals like B’ESTFEST, Electric Castle or Full Moon Live, all over Romania. He shared the stage with many talented DJ’s like Featurecast, Stickybuds, Kraftykuts, Atomic Hooligan, Jon Kennedy, Borrowed Identity, San Soda, The C90’, Zed Bias or Delano Smith. Alt Om was also the opening act for great bands and artists like Club Des Belugas, Moonlight Breakfast, Golan and NOPAME.

Mr. JAZ

Resident at Café de Paris Monte-Carlo, Mr. JAZ presents himself as a world citizen that openly shows his love without any reservation for “Worldwide” by Gilles Peterson and Norman Jay. His vocation was born by listening to Radio Nova and by participating at Couleur’s 3 show ‘Metissage’ in the 90s. After that, he devoted his life to music and inner desire of sharing it. 10 years later he finds himself on several scenes and festivals, opening the scenes to important headliners.

He is definitely your go-to guy when in mood for funky tunes on the French Riviera!

UFe

UFe manifests himself as an explosion of diverse musical genres that create a unique style resisting categorization. When he’s not digging for old grooves or blue breakbeats, you can find him in the studio meticulously sound sculpturing.

Tzuc

Tzuc studied piano and guitar at an early age and was introduced to DJing around 2009. The same year he was invited to play at a dub & roots event held in an abandoned warehouse in Bucharest. He then becomes a regular at local parties and festivals, and soon after he hosts a radio show on GrooveOn, a local platform meant to connect local DJs and music lovers.
His years of digging and experience have created in Tzuc a versatility that has grown steadily, making him a serious selector able to understand the crowd and provide heavy dancing with pure emotion.
