All tracks were recorded during the 2015 Remix Band Camp of the Mitrovica Rock School, held in the last week of August 2015. The bands are formed by members of the Rock School’s two branches in north and south of Mitrovica. For most, the mixed-band program was their first contact with people from the other side of the city. And for almost all, the experience was their first experience with songwriting and studio recording.
MEET THE BANDS!
The Artchitects were the Mitrovica Rock School’s first mixed band to write their own material. Formed in 2011 from the best students of the Rock School’s two branches, the Artchitects have performed in Macedonia, the Netherlands and Italy. All current members are graduates of the Rock School’s traineeship program and work as junior teachers.
Akasha is a newly formed band under the 2015-2016 Remix Band Program. With vocals, bass, drums and keyboards, they set themselves apart from the popular guitar rock to create a unique funky-electro sound.
Groove for Prove is a newly formed band under the 2015-2016 Remix Band Program. Not only do they hail from different sides of the city, they also come from radically different musical backgrounds: pop and punk. The resulting sound is nothing short of exceptional for such a young band.
While newly formed under the 2015-2015 Remix Band Program, Where Is My Elephant comprises all senior Rock School students, all with previous songwriting experience but “remixed” to create an entirely new sound.
Sublime 6 is an Ambassador Band of the Mitrovica Rock School. Formed in 2013, the band’s original songs blend rock with alternative and experimental influences. The acclaimed Fontys Rock Academy in the Netherlands hailed the band for the charismatic performance of its two lead singers.
Crearty is a newly formed band under the 2015-2016 Remix Band Program. For five of its six members, this was their first experience songwriting and studio recording, and we’re impressed with their potential!
I.F.O. is a newly formed band under the 2015-2016 Remix Band Program, and the first mixed-band experience for all of its members. With their strong lead vocals (male and female) and powerful sound, we’re looking forward to hearing more!
