About Us

Underground FrequenciesΒ is a platform that goals to unite and promote the Balkans through the means of contemporary electronic music and art. Bringing the youth from all over the region with music, discussions, creative collaborations and sharing knowledge about the international underground scenes as starting point for many young folks that just start to explore the vast world of electronic music and culture.

Born on May 2011 from the works of Andrijan Apostoloski Bushi ‘Likvidator‘ and Aleksandar Stojanovski ‘Nyctophiliac‘ in Skopje as an internet streaming radio that quickly evolved into a webzine, UF has gradually been evolving since to becoming what it is today.

In our first years, the core goals of the platform was to interconnect otherwise two very distinct and separate DIY scenes from Skopje, which emphasized the underground hip-hop scene on one side, and hardcore-punk/metal scene on the other. We managed to do that by transparently publishing and promoting events and music releases without the limitations of a style or genre, and quickly turned heads to a new, more united youth scene that originated from the DIY culture that had variety of music, opinions and content to exchange in between. This very young movement was quickly broadcasting on FM frequencies in Skopje on the cult illegal radio station Kanal 103 for four consecutive years.

Underground Frequencies has long evolved from reporting just about the scene in Skopje or Macedonia, and takes the goal to do the same with the whole Balkan region as a whole, having collaborators and artists from all around the Balkans that are on board and support the platform.Β 

Since our formation we’ve had contributors coming from Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, Serbia, Bosnia, Bulgaria and Greece, however we’re highly open to other countries within the region as well as slowly we expand our cultural reach throughout the borders.

Today, we frequently publish podcasts such as the Balkan-based ‘In The Mix‘ and worldwide ‘Dense‘ series which includes dance-floor oriented techno from world’s best influential artists.

Combined, we have over 60 hours of original music mixed on our Soundcloud profile dating back from 2019 that includes many of the region’s legendary staples in the electronic music scene, but also worldwide artists that are influential to the whole underground movement such as X-TECH and Pessimist to name a few. We have an underground techno label called Club of Gore that releases dark oriented dance-floor techno with 90’s raves as main inspiration. On our webzine side, gonzo journalist editorials and reviews are evident with the roughness and first PoV insights about various topics: from the gruesome music industry and how to survive it, to cultural topics that affect the region and the globe.

Additionally, we offer analog mastering for electronic music for fair pricing which also includes distribution to digital streaming services and stores for independent artists and labels.

We plan to legalize Underground Frequencies as a cultural NGO by the start of 2022, and this is our open manifesto where you can learn how we plan to achieve our goals and defeat the obstacles that we will (or might) face.

Our logo comes from a very heavy interpretation of USSR’s now defunct international radio station called Radio Moscow, and it translates to broadcasting to the very edges that nobody else’ has been able to. We emit the underground from the Balkans and the globe completely uncensored and uncompromised.

Huge gratitude to everyone that contributed with their selections and mixes to our podcasts, and has priorly written articles for us and made our website richer with more variety of content.

To the “enemies” we’ve made on our everlasting journey, and those who don’t believe in us, we want to wish for a better tomorrow where we could collaborate and be stronger together. No kind of hatred, gossip or destruction has ever made anything better in this already wicked world of ours. Until that tomorrow comes, we wish you all the best and we hope that the love for groove reaches everyone that needs it.
