Ida Engberg and Matisa to Headline the Official No Sleep Afterparties at the Drugstore Club
The afterparties at the iconic Belgrade club Drugstore have been indispensable to the No Sleep festival for years. The star of the first No Sleep morning is Ida Engberg, a Swedish techno and deep house producer and DJ with more than two decades of experience on the electronic music scene. She earned a huge following and an international career with her cult track „Disco Volante“ and a remix of „Sisters of Night“ by Depeche Mode. Since 2011, she has released music for the famous Drumcode, including tracks like „Blue Yonder,“ „Junoverse,“ and „Unanswered Question“ in collaboration with Adam Beyer. The first morning at the Drugstore club will be opened by Belgrade DJ Antrax, known for his marathon minimal, house, and techno afterparty sets, and closed by German-Iranian DJ Human Rias, resident and booker of the former cult Munich club MMA (Mixed Munich Arts), resident of the No Sleep festival and friend of EXIT.
The second day of the festival at the Drugstore club will be marked by the WB Community party, hosted by DJ King of the Clouds. The Sunday afterparty will start with Andrej Jelić, one of the founders of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian club scene, known for hours-long afterparties and the Roof Aw project, within which he organised parties in unique locations. The central part of the afterparty is reserved for Matisa, who comes from Florence, the Italian city of art that inspired her interest in music and fashion. She made her debut with the EP „Organza/Honey Comb,“ introducing the world to her musical style, which includes house, disco, and electro. The marathon No Sleep weekend will be closed by the regional and local audience favourite Dejan Milićević. He is responsible for forming the local electronic scene, and more than two decades later, his love for high-quality techno and house has not diminished. From numerous releases through his publishing house Tit0 – Tit Zero Records to performances at major European festivals, Dejan Milićević brings a well of experience to the closing hours of this year’s No Sleep.
