    Nikola Jovicevic aka Freaky Funk is an essential part of Montenegro electronic scene, with his name attached to almost every big event in country. His talent and love for music helped make him a proud member of two very important clubbing organizations in region: AfterBeach Parties Montenegro and RetroActive DJ team with his friend DJ Proximus.
     Freaky Funk is known for DJ'ing quality tech- and funky house all over the Montenegro seaside, as well as winning the Exit Festival DJ Competition which granted him a spot on the Exit Dance Arena Stage, playing one of the biggest festivals in Europe alongside some of its biggest DJs.
     His first EP for Macedonia's Artefact label was the Just Visiting EP which was well received in international house music circles. Now Freaky Funk follows that release with a new collection of tracks within the No One EP. These four original tracks showcase Freak Funk's trademark of deep, funky sounds alongside bouncy basslines and superbly blended vocal bits.
     High production skills and a strong musical flare are on evidence here, offering top cuts aimed directly for the dancefloor but still suitable for casual, home listening. Touches of disco and classic underground flavors seal the deal, making for an EP that should fit like a glove in most house music DJ's playlists.

    With the support of great number of djs and producers around the globe, this ep is set to be Freaky Funk's the most successful  release to date.

Some of the feedback:

Davidson Ospina
FUNKY!!! great quality HOUSE MUSIC!

Sebastian Davidson
Funky ASS house music! Support!

Hippie Torrales
Good ep package.

Al Bradley/Audiotonic/Chemical
ALl 4 cuts are strong here, each one showing a real knack for dancefloor sensibilities. The one for me is the deeper vibe of 'Like You', really wicked deep-tech grooves.

Nick Holder
Fun party bumpin package here! Thanks for sending!

Andy Ward
not sure which is my favourite and im sure with more time the review would be higher.

Doc Link
Good energy here!! Thanks

Nacho Marco
Will play it.

Angel Rize
Amazing EP nice, groovy and funky. Very nice Mr. Freaky Funk.

These are 4 really exciting tracks. Groovy disco funk in a bubbling silky form; tactfully rockin that thin line between elating ladies and helping the gents boogie down. Composition and production-wise, all 4 songs ride that subtle nuance that have made some classics exactly that. Regardless, Freaky Funk spells FUN. Dig it!

Kiko Martínez
Awake & No One are groovy, thanx!

"Just Visiting" a 4 track EP put together by the upcoming and very talented Montenegro producer Freaky Funk is the seventh installment to the Artefact Records catalog.
The opener of the EP "Trust Nobody"is exactly what it is an opener and mood setter with it's deep and sexy sounds laid over with funky bass line along with beautifully sampled vocals and intelligently mixed with a trumpet and an electric guitar to complete the perfect combination.
The melodic jam "Simple Things" is as simple as the name would suggest, but as powerful as can be a mix of melodic instruments, funky bass lines and male vocal that gives you a warm and groovy drive.
The next gem "All Night" opens a different perspective and puts you on the next level for the perfect dance mood, funky cords, sexy vocals and a driving bass line to get you out of your chair and right on the dance floor.

People/For Love EP by X Twins - The newest addition to the Artefact Records catalog

Ready for love?
We've been hibernating for a while, but seems like we've found the perfect sound for the wake up call.

X Twins has served 2 beautifully warm and overflowing with atmosphere, swirling and building with incredible depth and clarity, perfectly rounded bodies for tracks to evolve. Simple and yet so infectious, their melodic breeze is a subtle and expressive ode to hypnotic house music.
Like opening the door to a secret garden full of wonders, the "People/For Love" EP (ARTE006) will gently lead you on spiritual journey.

The "deep thinker" from Montenegro contemplates with tough analog energy as a pushing solid state drum pattern opens into a rousing bassline-led theme. A freaky warbling synth tone becomes the main destination as warm, coal-fired beats pump throughout in "People". Splicing micro samples, elastic beats and beautiful synth work, this groovy late night journey track will sure make your mind wander in beautiful destinations.

The Millok & Dark Beat remix has a more tripped out jam on the theme, featuring vocal manipulations and deeper-than-deep synth hypnosis. Moody, utterly deep, and yet again with a heavy, warm aesthetic sound.
Capturing a unique vibe and simply rolling with it, delayed spaced-out chambers grow and recede in this nonchalant groove tool. Needless to say its a killer for the late, late hours.

And finally, the powerful opening tones of "For Love", served up with a healthy dose of funk and yet more classic-inspired deep house chord play, combine super funky, upfront nu-house beats with soulful, heart-melting musicality, and powerful but subtle vocals.
Densely strung together with filmic horn stabs, spooky atmospherics and dramatic crescendos, its a mysterious track for those off-the-wall moments.
Just sit back, relax and get ready for love, people!

You can preview the ep bellow or on our soundcloud page, stay tuned for the release date.
