Novi Sad DJ, producer and musical maverick Space Motion, one of the most respected and sought-after artists on the EDM scene today, will perform at Doček in Novi Sad alongside Undercatt, another big star on the electronic scene.
The dynamic and varied sets Space Motion & Tribe offer will be part of the music programme on 13 January from 10 p.m., which the Novi Sad audience will get to enjoy at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina, which will host fans of techno and house following the global trend of combining such spaces and electronic music.
Space Motion has been present on the local scene for almost two decades, and in recent years his parties have led him on a world tour from Ibiza, via Delhi, Dubai, Beirut and Paris, all the way to the unforgettable afterparties at EXIT, promising us a great party on 13 January with recognisable rhythms in a space that preserves the contemporary heritage of national arts. Space Motion’s contribution to electronic music is remarkable, as evidenced by the fact that he has dominated the world’s top playlists, streaming channels, music download charts and DJ charts for the past few years, earning support from some of the world’s leading stars in melodic techno, progressive, trance and tech house genres, with his unmistakable superb bravura. Space Motion’s incredible energy and production have earned him international recognition among leading music influencers, but also among the global club community, as he strives to usher in a new wave of underground music with his interpretation, leaving his loyal fans, followers, colleagues and critics eagerly awaiting his next move. He will be joined by Undercatt, who performed at one of the biggest electronic music festivals, Tomorrowland, and who became part of Solomun’s Diynamic family in 2014, as part of the Space Motion & Tribe programme.
