Mislav is still enthusiastic about music today as he was in his early beginnings some twenty years ago when started collecting records. He left his mark in clubbing scenes wherever he lived in the past, as with his project known as Mugic Soundsystem in Singapore. With his partners in crime for the past 6 years, Mugic Soundsystem has been pushing already notorious nights in Singapore known for its raw energy, own-built Klipsch vintage soundsystem and wide musical repertoire consisting of uncompromising mixture of electric funk, electro, house/techno hybrids, disco, various leftifield and obscure disco/punk/nu wave oddities thrown in for proper musical journeys, keeping open-minded listeners entertained throughout the night. Now seems he got his eyes on Bali Island where he moved end of 2013. When playing out, you never know what to expect from the man, but be ready for raw energetic music greatly influenced by sounds originating from Detroit, Chicago, Hague and New York. In 2012, Mislav partnered up with Pytzek and is now co-running Burek label plus assists with DJ Agency. After embarking on an A&R role in 2013 for a techno leaning sister label Barba, latest project is Pomalo!, a new sister label from Burek camp focusing on dance music for grown-ups.
Kentaro’s introduction to dance music goes back to the early eighties in New York where he spent his childhood and witnessed the dawn of hip-hop and b-boy culture. After returning to Tokyo, he was more into skateboard culture, rock and punk music until he got into rare-groove and jazz funk in the mid nineties. Around the same time, he was introduced to house music, and hearing stories about the Paradise Garage and the Loft in New York from the veterans of the scene who had been members at these legendary institutions. This eventually led him to help David Mancuso’s first Japan tour in the late nineties. These experiences are the foundation of Kentaro’s selections when he does have the chance to play out records, which are loosely centred around classics and fresh material of disco and house, but not limited to genres.
Since relocating to Singapore in 2004, he has founded MUGIC Soundsystem with Mislav and a few other like minded friends in 2007, and was main architect of their sound system consisting of vintage analogue gear. These days Kentaro has been working with the BUREK team to promote the artists under the label’s agency roster to the Far East region.
