_freedom of the form leads to “supremacy” of pure feeling or perception of space. inspired by the constructivist / suprematist art, using the name [0.10] we refer to a figure of thought: zero, because it is expected that after the destruction of the old world, zero can begin again.
_with 0.10 comes a restless curiosity, an urge to discover and create the illusive places where we meet harmony. harmony, harness by human beings, the skater, delivered through movement that is individual in its vertical dimension, but collective in the horizontal open group structures. but much of harmony is hidden from us. what is real can neither be seen or touched in our daily lives. error makes visible much of the city invisible world, shown through video, photography, clothing and intervention in urban space. it is the source and base for further growth of the local scene by supporting young talents and collaborating with interdisciplinary artists/designers/creative minds.
_in 0.10 you will experience how the three elements come together: space, error and harmony. investigate, learn and create.
_minimal, clean and neat, our clothes are designed to better represent the story of dystopian universe, to show that purity can be reached and clean lines can be as exciting as geometric abstraction and angular shapes of elements. by supporting 0.10 you support the team and our vision of what skateboarding is and where it could go next.

EBSF is an underground rap/graffiti crew from Skopje, Macedonia.

Founded in 2012 mainly as a graffiti crew, but after a few years the members started getting involved into music, because of the love for rap and graffiti culture as one.
EBSF as a rap unit has 4 members: (A.S.K, Vutar, Majk,Tsrv ) and 4 who paint actively: (Vutar, Tsrv, Rask and Rodeo).


The four letters have no significant importance, which means that anything you come up with, using the four letters will be it’s actual meaning. The name of the crew is symbolic, because at that period of time, nobody in the crew knew what they were doing with their lives (job, carreer, school etc.) so it made perfect sense for them that they don’t know what the name was, but still had a name to be recognized by.


The members of EBSF have all been recording individually since 2009. As a crew they have one mix-tape completed with 7 songs and it’s titled “Labavi Parkadzhii”. It was released in 2017, and since then, the crew has only been releasing singles. The main attentive in the lyrics  is based on their life in the environment and city that they live in. The crew is strongly focused on writing, recording on Macedonian and painting using exclusively the Cyrillic script whilst trying to influence younger people to love, respect and represent the local scene and culture,  with all it’s perks so they can truly be original and proudly say where they are from.

error:

From the Latin Errare, which means to make a mistake, but also to seek. Error is searching for the right answer. Glitch that gives a new direction. Stepping out of the narrow limits of the norm. Error is the universal path of creativity. Error is the alchemy through which human becomes perfect.

Kolektiv:

From the Latin collectivus, which means unity. Kolektiv is a group in which the differences create a union. A place where the personal touch creates a unified whole. Kolektiv is team creativity.

Error Kollectiv is а shared harmony of the individual. A space in which Milena is a fashion designer and costume designer, Ilija is videographer, editor and skater, Emilija is an illustrator and graphic designer and their respective brands ATAMI, [0.10] error of harmony and Em Ellephantski create One and are the foundation of error kolektiv.

 

Our goal is to promote local artists, design and art, and also to educate..
It’s first about appreciation of every art medium, and then supporting local artists.

Our kolektiv is getting bigger and we are always open for more creative people.

Or to put it plainly, he creates concrete percussion and cavernous synths with his guitar pedals, recorder and tape deck.

Likvidator is a producer from Skopje addicted to decayed dark scapes.
The sounds of a hypnotized industrial city, the railroad delayed making it seem like an eternity. In the disoriented vast space, the ambience of Likvidator infused in Dub and irregularities can be heard.
It is a signal from the deepest realities hidden in plain vibrations, the culture of Illbient mashed with the most psychedelic sides of Trip-Hop and Techno.

Born 1972 in Skopje.

Buying records and taking good care of his music since the earliest days of elementary school.

Progressing into birthday party DJ in the early 80s 🙂

Most music was cool all around in the 80s. Even Pop music was the greatest ever.

Such a creative environment helped him develop healthy curiosity, divergent musical taste and a progressive orientated mindscape, which will appear decisive in the future…

First professional DJ booking in 1992. Been very busy since than. Probably the busiest DJ in the country…

Regular at Kanal 103 (alternative FM radio station) since 1992, which proved very important for his development as a personality and as a musician. Free expression can work wonders if used creatively. Editor in chief between 2008-2010…

1993 finds him at the core of the macedonian Techno-cultural revolution. A very important time for changing cultural habits and finally putting Skopje on the map…

In 1995, he starts PMG Collective – a real life manifesto against the backward state of the Macedonian society. In the next years, PMG becomes probably the most influential artistic organization in modern day Macedonian pop culture, with its radical avant-garde deeds on the streets, it sparked all kinds of changes and novelties, from drug euphorias to musical revolutions…PMG parties in the 90s are the essence of Skopje’s urban folklore at the time. Mirko Popov as a DJ plays all around the country and becomes the first Macedonian international DJ…

 

1998 marks the start of PMG Recordings, an independent Macedonian label, which celebrates new Macedonian sound and does some justice to the extremely talented, but mainly unrecognized modern musicians in the country… 160 releases so far.

With a noble intention to capture the spiritual momentum of a PMG dancefloor, he starts PattermPMG in 2011, an electronic dance net-label.

Also responsible for a label called Makedonide.

PMG Jazz started in 2018, with 4 releases so far.

 

Last few years of the 20th century brought his first House, Techno and Electro productions, with some fine success in Macedonian clubs…

He puts together PMG Kolektiv – the band in 2003. That’s further example of his creativity, writing music and lyrics and singing in the band. PMG Kolektiv is one of the leading independent bands in Macedonia, successfully releasing albums and constantly playing tours. He’s also part of an obscure-cult electronic project called Kanton6 and something called #MakedonideCrew. Works, composes and sings with a legendary local jazz band Sethstat (1 album so far).

 

Performed as an actor in films and theatre productions.

Scored several soundtracks for theatre.

Directed a radio-drama.

Written and produced a film.

 

Still living and working in Skopje.

ogie is a pioneering producer and DJ on the Macedonian electronic scene, active since

the 90’s.  
One of the early digital pioneers, he started working on tracker software,

eventually becoming a master of sampling and detailed production work.
His style grew from dance-floor oriented breakbeat flavours, then took a turn to mellow Ambient

cinematic soundscapes. Eventually he took a break from music production, to return with

explorations in the dance-floor territory of 4/4 acidic Electrotechouse beats.

 

Ogie’s tracks have been featured on the earliest compilations of Macedonian electronic

music artists, released by PMG Recordings, Third Ear Music and Margina magazine.

Furthermore, he has written and produced music for theatre plays and various

multimedia presentations, as well as performed his music live at various venues across

Macedonia and internationally. Most notably, his music has been featured on the

soundtrack of the award-winning documentary “Maybe Logic: The Lives and Ideas of

Robert Anton Wilson”.

 

As a DJ, he started playing mainly Drum’n’Bass music from 1999 to 2003 and helped

establish the Macedonian Drum’n’Bass scene. He has DJ’ed in various clubs, events and

festivals and has held the first resident Drum’n’Bass night for some time with a team of

friends AKA the “01 crew”. His DJ outings evolved to feature a varied mix with a bit of

everything for a blissful alchemical concoction, represented in the eclectic “Favour

Savour” 6-hour long mix series.

He has been a radio host and producer involved with 3 radios.

Post Global Trio is an ambient/drone  collective composed of Toni Dimitrov, Dimitar Dodovski and Martin Georgievski, usually as an improvised live performance band. Post Global  Trio is an experience. Experience that you can feel on the journey through distant lands. Inside or outside thyself. Image of clear and subtle soundscapes and landscapes. Enter into the woods. Leave the city  behind the horizon. Forget about it… Now enter more deeply. In thyself. And find yourself. The way you were before you have long forgotten. The project is created as a continuity of communication, collaboration,  necessity of developing a certain scene. Sound picture of long-term mutual philosophical meditations.
