About Us

✭ frekvencii.org is a blitzkrieg of underground music and contemporary art, vice culture and voice of critical thinking, based in Skopje, North Macedonia, founded in 2011.

Our platform goals to promote ways of achieving a more collaborative cultural scene between the Western Balkan countries, especially Macedonia, Kosovo and Serbia. We thrive towards bringing new and forward thinking electronic music and techno from around the world and introduce our audience with the cutting edge of the underground.

Connect with our platform

We thrive to be as open as possible and share our experiences with everybody curious of learning, to be a platform where we will aim to allow our audience and ourselves to think critically and be involved directly or indirectly with politics by voicing our opinion and be involved in shaping the future of our local scenes. We communicate exclusively in English to conquer the language gaps between our own countries, but also to have our content accessible to the whole world, and to all of those who are curious in new music and the Western Balkans more intimately.

Our mix podcasts on Soundcloud serve as a digital archive for Western Balkan DJs, artists and selectors, but also welcome internationally acclaimed underground artists who contribute in our sonic database with their unique selection of music and mixing.

We have a specific demographic of young adults from Macedonia, Kosovo and the world, people who think critically, are educated and culturally rich and come from all kinds of backgrounds — from ravers, software developers, bartenders of all nationalities, sexual orientations and genders. We are proud to be diverse and promote unity in a region where sadly critical and open-minded thinking is often repressed, a trend which is sadly also present in the culture sphere.

If you represent an organization that would like to work together with us on a potential project such as an event, please feel free to reach out with your ideas.


Team

This platform wouldn’t exist without the help of many friends that were made since 2011, and all the people who selflessly contributed their words and thoughts about music, their knowledge and experience and have simply been a part of our journey since the beginning. All of the crew involved are contributing on a volunteering basis.

We would like to thanks the countless artists, friends and followers who we’ve made our journey possible. Without the hard work and belief of all of those people who aren’t mentioned here, this project wouldn’t survive and evolve to what it is today. Huge gratitude to all of you, you know who you are.
