Kamizdat is celebrating the 2022 Netlabel Day with a release of another compilation of local alternative electronic music: 12 exclusive tracks that span a wide spectrum of electronic and acoustic genres: from noise and sonic art, computer music, spoken word and artistic folk.
Colony, to colonize, decolonization: defining the border between the individual and the community, redefining the imperialist past, colony as a form of survival of species. The concept of colony is theme of the 12 mostly exclusive tracks on this years Kamizdat compilation of adventurous music which will be published as a zine and QR cards on the international Netlabel Day, July 14th 2022.
On the day of the release two of the featured artists will perform in the summer ambiance of Kino Šiška with the support of a fellow DJ.
The event will be streamed at 20:00 CEST at https://live.pretok.tv.

Kamizdat Rentgen is a glance under the surface of the skin, a look into the fleshy entwinement of bones, muscles and nerves that shape the heterogeneity of the sound bodies. It is a series of music events organized by Kamizdat to increase the visibility of adventurous music makers who dare to venture into the territories where no one had been before. The events are often closely connected with the label’s new releases.
