SOLVD will host Croatian house pioneer & veteran, Felver.
He's widely appreciated for his music connoisseurship and unspoken sensitivity of a gentleman, Felver has defined Zagreb’s clubbing scene like no other DJ. On rotation since more than 25 years, he has been bringing the best of contemporary and evergreen sounds to audiences in clubs and festivals around the world, on the radio, at the Croatian coast and in some of the most impressive cultural locations in Zagreb and the region. And not just as a DJ, but as a host, an event organizer, and a visionary force.
Enfant terrible of house music in Croatia, Marijan Felver, started to DJ professionally at an early age of 20. In the nineties, his life revolved around “Cosmic Disco” events in Aquarius, that hosted many pioneers of the then up-and-coming NorthAmerican electro music scene such as John Acquaviva, DJ Pierre and others.
Clubbing and hosting experience has contributed to the creation of his own production, and his first release on German label “Blaou” under the name: “Audio Video Disco Connection: Der Kroatische Traum Ep”; that was the beginning of a collaboration with Dixon. This release bore fruit to another collaboration, with London tech-house protagonist, Gideon Jackson & SWAG record label.
His active role on the then-emerging scene of house music took him to the UK and to the infamous Wiggle nights with residents: Terry Francis & Nathan Coles where he, more than credibly, represented the Croatian tech-house scene in one of the worlds leading clubs, “Fabric”.
Later on, Felver’s expertise and knowledge have been utilized in the organization of many music events, such as Aquatica festival & Valkana Beach festival. His contribution to the first electronic festivals in Croatia is seen as very crucial as it helped put Croatia on the map as a festival destination. Ever since then Felver has been actively asked to contribute to the Croatian music scene, be it with his playing or simply consulting.
His peculiar taste and vast knowledge of music have always been appreciated by everyone including his listeners on famous Radio 101 where he worked as the music editor and as the editor of the Deep FM radio show.
Recently, Felver set the ground for a new project, with his friend Steffen Berkhahn, aka Dixon, called Stereotip. It suffices to say that it is the fast-growing new thing, not only for great party music but also the special choice of venue. Stereotip has already spread to all major cities in the Balkans and is moving fast forward to other European capitals.
