Vladimir Ivkovic & ML
(Offen, Salon Des Amateurs, Radio Cómeme,NTS Radio) - GER)
Born and raised in Belgrade, Yugoslavia.
Witnessing the peak of alternative culture and disintegration of the society in his formative years.
Moved to Germany in the beginning of the 90’s, in the late 90’s early 00’s invited artists like Carlos Souffront, I-F. I-G, Marco Passarani, Serge (amongst others) to play Selected and Substance events.
Long time resident at the infamous Salon des Amateurs in Düsseldorf and the man behind Offen Music, a label specialized in authentic subjectivism.
One of the finest selectors of hidden musical gems, he gleans from the most cloistered sonic lagoons – expect to see Loch Ness’s dragon dancing on the floor.
ML is a rake from Cologne who loves sound and vision. Besides being a journalist and night owl he is in charge for the 150 Session radio show for Radio Cómeme and NTS Radio that he always tunes with no clue what to do. ML’s shows come around as an eclectic genre meltdown that marries avant-techno with rural chants from the past, odd house emotions with detailed minimal music, psychedelic fuzz with big city jazz and beyond. No country, no flag – outernational without a cause.
