The intimate affair and compilation highlights the art of DJing.
Dekmantel is expanding its empire in 2016 with an intimate Croatian festival and accompanying compilation series under the Selectors banner.
As the name suggests, Selectors focuses on the art of DJing, and features a line up of artists known for their record collections and digging skills.
The festival line-up features Motor City Drum Ensemble, Joy Orbison, Lena Willikens, The Black Madonna, Andy Votel and Hunee alongside The Bunker’s Mike Servito, Helena Hauff, and Amsterdam talent Tom Trago, San Proper and Young Marco. Selectors also highlights veteran DJs like Daniele Baldelli, Beppe Loda and I-F alongside under-the-radar talent like Jon K, Intergalactic Gary, Sassy J and Traxx.
The accompanying compilation series arrives on CD and vinyl formats, but are “not mix CDs” – instead each Selectors compilation includes a collection of hand-picked, unmixed tracks curated by the artist. The first three compilations come from Motor City Drum Ensemble, Joy Orbison and Young Marco.
The festival takes place across September 1-5 at The Garden Resort in Tisno. Tickets can be found at the Dekmantel Selectors website, and you can check the tracklist for MCDE’s Selectors volume, released in March 2016, below.
