Share

From the vibrant streets of Belgrade, often referred to as the ‘White Fortress’, emerges a musical sensation whose journey from humble beginnings in Serbia has led to the global stage. Mene, an artist known for his dark, raw grooves and inimitable fusion of Hip Hop and House, aptly dubbed ‘Hip House’, is making waves in the underground music scene.

Mene’s music embodies the cosmopolitan spirit of Belgrade, a city that blends the old with the new, tradition with innovation. His productions, marked by a unique blend of Hip Hop’s rhythmic energy and House’s infectious beats, have quickly earned him a reputation for quality and originality. His tracks have been released on renowned labels such as Elrow, CUFF, Moan, Material, Roush, and Sura Music, underscoring his talent and distinctive sound.

The rise of Mene has not gone unnoticed. His music is regularly championed by some of the biggest names in the underground scene—Jamie Jones, Loco Dice, Marco Carola, and The Martinez Brothers. This support is a testament to the impact and resonance of his tracks on dance floors around the world.

Mene’s DJ sets are an extension of his productions, delivering Hip Hop-infused House and Techno with an undeniable class and swagger. His performances are a journey, connecting with the audience and taking them through a spectrum of emotions and energies. Noteworthy performances at events such as the Fire Stage at Love Fest and the Dance Arena at Exit Festival highlight his ability to captivate and energize large crowds.

Mene’s latest milestone is his debut on Loco Dice’s renowned Desolat imprint with the ‘Out Of That’ EP, set to drop on 31st May 2024. This release marks a significant moment in his career, further establishing his presence in the global music scene. The two-track EP showcases his ability to blend hip-hop vibes with energetic tech house rhythms, creating a seamless fusion that is both lively and captivating.

“I grew up listening to hip-hop music, and I’ve always been heavily impacted by its unique whistles and powerful drum beats. My newest EP blends hip-hop vibes with the energetic rhythms of tech house, creating a seamless fusion. Every song on the EP showcases my love for both genres, making it a lively expression of my musical journey.”
