Darkwood Dub – Dnevnik

Darkwood Dub is an art rock/electro rock band from Belgrade, Serbia. Darkwood Dub was formed in 1988, and gradually grew to prominence, and even iconic status, in the Serbian rock scene. Their music is characterized by gentle bass lines, a mixture of live drumming and electronic percussion, along with frequent use of slide guitar, synthesizers and samplers. The succinct and introspective lyrics are also a prominent feature, sung with offbeat vocal of Dejan Vučetić, the band’s frontman and lyricist. Along with Vučetić, the founding members of the band are Vladimir “Vlidi” Jerić (guitar/sampler/effects) and Milorad “Miki” Ristić (bass), while Bojan “Bambi” Drobac (guitar) and Lav Bratuša (drums/percussion) joined in the early 90s. The lineup has remained unchanged since. Apart from 6 official albums, the band participated in several joint projects (such as Belgrade Coffee Shop), composed scores for several films and theatre (Ghetto, Splinters (1995), Trainspotting 1996, War/Memories 2004). The band also showed a political streak by participating in many pro-democracy projects.[1] Today, Darkwood Dub are one of the most relevant rock bands in Serbia, with a strong fanbase in the Yugoslavian diaspora.
