BalkanBeats SoundSystem

More than a project, BalkanBeats is a cultural battle; by playing original or remixed versions of traditional Balkan tunes, the BalkanBeats project not only gives them a space within the world music scene and on the dance floors, but also in the memories of young people. The term “BalkanBeats“ was coined by Robert Šoko in order to describe the explosive parties he started back in 1993 in Berlin and which spread globally since then.

BalkanBeats is also the title of Šoko's iconic compilations, which remain a blue print to nowadays Balkan Beats genre. Šoko established regular BalkanBeats events throughout Europe but also in Mexico City & Tokyo. Yet for the past 10 years the BalkanBeats temple has been the Lido Berlin, hosting DJ sets and prominent live acts.
