This year’s line-up includes the internationally recognised electronic producer, musician and DJ FVLCRVM (Slovakia) followed by the Zabelov Group (Czech Republic) known for their unique blend of electronics and jazz embellishments, an exciting new collaboration Žagar AV Experience (Hungary) and Brighton-based DJ Nano PUNK (Poland) accompanied with visuals by Neonm3.
This joint project is a collaboration between Nanopunk & NeonM3 crafted specifically for Electronica: Vision of Sound III event. Nanopunk is a one-man electronic orchestra using samplers, loopers and live production techniques to play mesmerising alt/dance electronic live sets. He produces lush, beautifully driven foot-tapping grooves, wrapped up in a cosmic atmosphere. On the other hand, Neonm3’s visual explorations are not limited to a particular style. For the upcoming show, the base of content will be 3D scans from extensive travel logs: various real-world places dated back to the megalithic period were captured using portable 3d-scanning techniques. These objects are fed to a custom made audio-reactive visual system, generating swarms of particles within multi-dimensional space.
On the tipping edge between mainstream and underground, Eastern Europe suburb embossed artist FVLCRVM is a celebration of unpredictability. ADHD distored production of niche club genres meets mellow pop musicality with reinvented 90s vibe. Borrowing his name from a mad Russian jet fighter, the artist found a form in inconsistency. Picked by Spotify as no 1 for their renowned ‚Fresh Finds‘ Playlist, the first track featuring FVLCRVM’s vocal ‚Hi!‘ was also featured by BBC Radio 6 Music, gaining the Bratislava based artist immediate attention by tastemakers like Mary Anne Hobbs or Machinedrum. For Electronica: Vision of Sound III, FVLCRVM will premiere his new collaboration with light designer Josef Čabo drawing on dystopian motifs and elements of abstract futuristic user interface.

Active on the Czech scene since 2012, Zabelov Group is a musical dialogue between Roman Zabelov, an accordionist from Belarus, and Jan Šikl, Czech drummer and multi-instrumentalist. Their original acoustic puritanism gradually transformed into complex cinematic music accompanied by samples and acoustic instruments enhanced by electronics. Zabelov Group’s musical endeavour is permeated by their effort to maintain live contact with the instrument but at the same time provide the entire spectrum of club sounds. The duo’s latest work called “Madhouse Session EP” was released in 2020 by Minority Records. Accompanied by a light design by leading VJ Linda Arbanová.
