Neki

 

Coming from family of musicians, Neki Stranac got involved into music since the age of six, playing guitar and later bass guitar,
vocals and ethnic and medieval woodwinds. Neki solo career began in 2010 with the rise of moombahton movement worldwide.

Neki Stranac music can be described as moombahton / global bass electronic dance genre, heavily influenced by cumbia, kuduro, baile funk,
Balkan brass, kwaito, house and electro. From 2010 up to this day, Neki is described as one of the most influential and fundamental moombahton artists in the world, and definitely the most prolific one. Neki has more than 250 remixes, refixes and edits, as well as dozen originals, such as his collaboration with Australia`s Tom Piper “Bo!” (No Frills label, Australia, 2012) or “Mndra” (upcoming trap release for Downpitch, The Netherlands, 2013) with a lots of originals and remixes soon to be released. His work is repeatedly supported by influential sites, blogs and magazines such as Generation Bass, Mad Decent, Tropical Bass, Mixmag, Headliner Mag, Moomba+, Top Billin and others, with his remixes being released for such labels as Man Recordings, No Brainer Records, UrbanWorld Records and Downpitch. Due to numerous Neki works and reworks, his music is being played by DJ`s and radio stations worldwide. It can be easily said that almost no moombahton and/or global bass party anywhere in the world today is held without at least one of his tracks being played. Various sub-styles of his work allow him to create completely unique live sets consisting of his own production solely, that can be mellow or hard, slow and fast, or just mashed-up stylee. In addition to that, he plays synth themes and solos live with his EWI USB, which is a kind of electronic USB-clarinet, and uses the microphone for vocal shouts, which makes his set as live as one-man band can be.
