Lag aka Milos Martinov is a Serbian born promoter of the underground culture, a DJ and a respected producer who’s on the forefront of the new wave of techno artists. Grit, rhythm and attitude are his main tools as he blends them into his music, creating a potent combination which enchants, moves and unifies.
It’s easy to hear from his sound that he didn’t take the usual route on his musical journey. He grew up on punk, acquired a classical education in music and then quit it all to find himself enchanted by the possibilities of expressing oneself both through DJing and making electronic music. He chose techno to be the host for his creative discharge, while always incorporating a certain dosage of his previous musical life to his current work.
Through his DJ sets, as well as in workshops and events he organized and promoted under the umbrella of his organization 29524, Lag put efforts into closing the gap between the “good” and the “known”. These promotional activities have however reduced, and his focus has moved onto delivering extremely functional DJ sets, along with creating and releasing original music, mainly in the techno genre.
Lag’s incredible performances on the “Exit” festival’s main DJ stage and at the legendary Tresor club speak volumes of his ability to engage his crowd, and offer an intense sonic experience.
After several appearances and releases, predominantly on the Serbian label Teskoba, his remix of Grovskopa’s ‘Atopic’ was released by Sect Records. This was soon followed up by his first EP ‘Stutter’, a highly acclaimed release on the notoriously uncompromising Singularity Recordings. Further output on MORD namely the ‘Misfit’ and ‘Fiend’ EPs underlined the quality and uniqueness of his already recognizable sound.
Lag is set to stay on his current path as his mission, his initial vision, is yet to flicker. His ruthless determination is awe inspiring, and is, along with his musical prowess, the main reason for his rising popularity. Lag is definitely someone to keep an eye on, but more importantly …..…… someone to listen to.
After all, as he frequently states, “it’s all about the music”.
