Born in 2006 Homeboy started taking over Marko Pelaic' musical personality allowing him to focus on contagiously playful, danceable music. Honestly, Homeboy was always around: he's been following and nourishing Marko's musical growth through completely diverse bands genre vise, giving him time and space to notice his true calling was in absorbing all the basics house music had to offer and adapting it to his personal style. Homeboy owns that style now though he lets Marko experiment with his sounds.
Homeboys style's been recognized by Speak Recordings, Hypercolour, Burek and is now, thanks to Marko and his two co-founder friends, giving his musical imprint to House is OK label. Homeboy performs his music live. For his performance, he uses a laptop wired to synthesizers, drum machines and effects. Eclectic and seriously danceable, often playing with the boundaries of different genres like House, Techno & Disco. We politely asked him to select 10 tracks of his choice that defined HYTE festival. Here is the list!
One of my favourite chill out tracks to date. Andy Cato teamed up with Maiku Takahashi to create this perfect sunset track! They smartly took a Tangerine Dream sample as its basic and build this beauty around it.
Chris Beisswenger aka TCB (The Citizen’s Band) is one big talent and I am so lucky we released this on House Is OK. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArUSmhRk3Vs
This is my remix for Sleazy McQueen’s project. I am really happy that it came out eventually since the original label closed before the scheduled release date. Despite that Laurin took it on the label together with a nice remix 12” which features it at the end.
Petar is an old friend of mine, a mentor and also an inspiration. I’m glad that I know him and that I had been able to learn from him thru all these years. This number is pure genius, no need to say more! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OikaxAVDWZE
Just a 2$ bin house classic. You can play this anytime, anywhere!! It still goes down heavily on the dancefloors after all these years. I wish I could have seen Danny Tenaglia playing at Twilo back in the days!
This track is sooooo much fun!
I guess this is the big tune of the summer for me. Well deserved! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUHSh_ufGIQ
Yume is one of my favourite UK labels right now and this track has everything that I enjoy in electronic dance music. Jazzy drums, a wonky bassline, dubby synth stabs and a certain dose of darkness that comes from this vocal sample. THE Tune!
This is a Zagreb techno classic. So sad that Davor is out of the game for quite a while now. So much wasted talent! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs97byb8mws
My ode to one of my favourite islands in the Adriatic sea. It will make you happy whenever you will play it.
