Undeground Music Events - GARANT

 

Different Underground in Belgrade. Brought to you by the Vazda Garant Gang.

 

Hello, guys! We hope you enjoyed the video as much as we enjoyed making it. Now let us introduce ourselves a bit more. We are a group of young women trying to bring underground culture from all over the world to Belgrade. 

 

Anja-1508430577

 

This dope lady right here is Anja. She's seen Goodfellas at least 5 times and can't decide which one she loves more - music or film. She'll be a screenwriter someday. Her role in the project is to get in touch with all the artists.

 

 

Sanja-1508431129

 

Then we have Sanja, future interior designer. Her biggest wish is to live in England and spend her life drawing and making art. Her role is designing everything necessary to make the Garant visuals look so good.

 

 

Vanja-1508431544

 

Here's Vanja, an anthropologist, world traveler and a gymnast. She's the one that produced the short video you just saw. And of course, she'll be responsible for the documentary you're gonna see. 

 

Zvezdana-1508431756

 

We get to Zvezdana, who, aside from having a name that literally translates to Star(ry), is a dream hunter, Don Quixote's granddaughter and apparently a pretty amazing movie director. She directed our promo video and wrote the script for it.

Last but not least, Marija, the money man. She's addicted to experiences, thinks in Spanish and wants to spend her life making dramatic entrances, dancing and creating enterprises. She's responsible for this campaign and everything related to the moneyz.

Our project is about making amazing underground events with which artists and the audience can connect and relate. We also want to use the influence of the events to show people how music affects and changes the world. The purpose of GARANT is to bring as much new music as we can - the musical world is so vast and amazing, and we know that people want to hear it. Serbian people are very musical and open-minded about musical genres.

 

We want to promote the artists we appreciate and give chances to new artists trying to expose themselves to a different market. All these talented artists would benefit from this as much as we would.

 

The genres (we want to bring) are: grime, footwork (juke), halftime, bass, French rap and UK rap, and labels like High Focus, Potent Funk, Astrophonica, etc. We're also into French Antilles hip hop, Latin Trap, Brazilian underground rap scene, Icelandic hip hop, Swedish hip hop and much much more. We're quite a versatile bunch as you can see. 

 

We want to show international artists that coming to Belgrade is worth it. They have many fans who cannot express themselves as much as they would like.

 

Vazdagarant-1508433851

 

There is a big gap on the Belgrade music market between Drum and Bass (especially drum and bass neurofunk and liquid), techno and Hip-hop / RnB. We see that underground culture is not represented fairly in Serbia, because there are very few events for people that want something different.

 

In addition, we want to support the presence of women in the underground milieu in events and stage performance. It is difficult to penetrate this market as a woman, and that is why the success of this campaign would help us enormously.  

Allocation of funds

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to be a part of a musical revolution that will include so much more than just music - this will be a cultural turnaround, something that we know our city needs, but can't get just yet. We will turn our heads to the world and listen to all the music that reaches our hearts.

 

Our first event will take place on December 2, 2017. The funds will be used for:

 

- Space rental (€300)

 

The club in which our first party will take place; it's in the heart of Belgrade and it's called "KPTM". This club is one of the most important underground venues and they mentioned to us that our idea came at the right time. They wanted us to join forces for this specific event.

 

- Booking of the artists (€700)

 

Our guests on December 2 will fly directly from London; they are DJ/producer Sumgii (from the crews Problem Child, Cult Mountain, 616 and LDZ; he produces music for underground hip hop artists like Dabbla, Piff Gang and Black Josh) and MC Illaman (who has numerous solo projects, is the official MC for drum'n'bass DJ Goldie, currently has a tour with the French hip hop collective Chinese Man, and is 1/4 of the group Problem Child, along with Sumgii). These two artists have personally expressed immense interest in bringing their UK influence to Belgrade.

 

- Artists' airplane tickets and accommodation (€600)

 

Direct return flights for two from London to Belgrade (€550, with Air Serbia), and one night of accommodations (apartment per night rental for 50); it is necessary that the artists see the hospitality we are able to provide. This way, they can recommend us further and help our cause even more.

 

- Garant street art and promotional materials (€100)

 

We have a few interested street artists who would help us advertise through urban nooks and crannies. The "All in one print center" in Belgrade will be in charge for printing our other promo material, like t-shirts, badges, posters and stickers. 

(http://www.copy.rs/)

 

- The documentary itself (€200)

 

Funds would go into web promotion and distribution; the aforementioned "All in one copy center" will be in charge for the distribution of the physical (DVD) version of the documentary. This movie will represent our journey from the first steps of booking, over design and promotion, to welcoming our guests and interviewing them.

 

There would be added footage of the party itself; the interviews of the guests will also be a reflection on how well our job was done, as well as presenting to us their music and influences. We will equally give you insight into the Belgrade underground music scene.

 

In case we do get more money from you guys, we're gonna set that money aside for our next amazing event, production of additional video and promo materials. Some of the people we've had contact with and who would be happy to be our guests are Sam Binga (UK, Bristol), Entek (FRA, Paris), and LEVELZ (UK, Manchester).

 

 

The process of making the documentary will officially start on 25th of November and will continue until after our first event (25th of December). It will take approximately one month to make everything look perfect. Marija Jovic will receive the collect, as a representative of the GARANT TEAM. The money will be used for the documentary, event organization and everything we specified above. 

 

 

We don't take help or funding for granted, and in this case, our idea is to also increase awareness of various music genres locally. In case we get more funds than listed here, we would save some of that money for future events, but we'd organize workshops and write blogs which would raise genre and community awareness, too. We have urban art in mind, and a big portion of our funds would go on supporting European and local artists alike in achieving each others' goals (for example: graphic designers, graffiti artists, DJs, and organizers who are willing to expand from their local areas, too).

The purpose of this organization is to get help and give back. We intend to realize our dreams - then help others realize them in turn!

 

Help as much as you can, come to the party and daaaaance! ;)
