Electronic Beats Festival, which will take place on Friday, 26th of October, is bringing us a variety of famous names from the world of electronic music. With the performances by world-famous Hot Chip, Modeselektor, Woodkid and Dillon, you’ll be able to see Kimiko, electro-pop duo from Zagreb, whose first album “From Our Room To Yours” came out on Geenger Records in November 2011.
Come, support this event and have fun!

Today we played at Aquarius music shop as today is world’s Record Store Day! It was quite fun and it was a great feeling playing among LPs & CDs in broad daylight :))

Rehearsals are going great, thank you very much for asking. Almost everything is set for the big promotion of our album “From Our Room To Yours” on Friday, 25th, in Močvara. We have Le Zbor joining us on stage for two songs, we have Lidija Dokuzović singing one of our songs (it will be tough to follow after her, but hey, we never claimed our voices and singing capabilities are great :P ).
see a preview here:
We have Felon (who is also a supporting act for Kimiko that evening) helping us out in two songs and Lana will join us in one song with her beautifully sounding cello.

This will also be the very first concert with our whole performing concept reorganized. As we don’t have a sound guy, but are in desperate need of one, we again turned to that wonderful invention called computer for help. So, if it doesn’t crash (funnily enough, computers are still as reliable as humans) and cause some emotions like hatred towards our new little fellow, the new set up should be a big asset to our firm.
We’ve set up a project in Mainstage2 to contain channels for our vocals, synths, backing tracks and rhythm machines and we used our trusty Akai MPC1000 to queue all the effects and changes throughout a song. So, no more floor vocal effects and finally sound engineer at the club will have a control of our drum vocal and synth levels separately. Not to bore you with details, this is quite an improvement and we are excited to try it out. But if it fails us…..
So, the musical part of the evening is all set. In the next post, we will acknowledge the other aspect of the concert and all the people who unselfishly helped us to get what we wanted. And all of that just to make you, the ones who will attend, as comfortable and as special as we can. Signing off before we become more pathetic :P
It’s exactly 20 days to the big promotion of our album From Our Room To Yours and we are very excited about it and very busy preparing everything both for your hearing and viewving pleasure!
The album is out on November 22nd, and three days after that, on November 25th in Močvara, we will raise our glasses filled with champagne, and our guitars, in celebration of the album’s release. We won’t be alone - singer/songwriter Felon will be there to worm up the stage, charming Le Zbor choir will be there to help us sing a song or two and DJ Shullio will be in charge of the atmosphere before and after, playing beats that won’t keep your feet in place. There will be other guests helping us perform some songs, but let’s not reveal everything. There must be an element of surprise present, right?
A nice poster for the event was made by our dearest designer Vedran Židanik. Tae note of the fine print! It ssays that anyone who buys our CD in Dirty Old Shop gets to go to the concert for free! Of course, you can always buy our album from the comfort of your chair, or just listen it for free, right here: kimiko.bandcamp.com
Also, a nice announcement of our album’s promotion can be read on Soundguardian portal.
We were asked to play as a support act for I’m From Barcelona, a very fun Swedish band. We actually saw them live two years ago and although we didn’t listen to their music before, the concert was enormously entertaining and we were planning to go and see them again anyways, so this turned out to be swell : )
