Likatek has been the key factor in the rapid development of the club scene in Kosovo, crossing a long way from the murky passages of squat parties, through radio hosting and up to becoming the architect of the world renowned ‘Episode’ series.
Brought up under the influence of electronic music throughout the continent, he returned to Kosovo to nurture this sound, initially through the radio show “Electric Afternoon”, hosted at an underground oriented radio station, Urban FM. Including live DJ sets, information and on air discussions with the audience, the show quickly took a cult status and became a milestone for the electronic music scene in Kosovo. Subsequently, encouraged by Urban FM, he released a trilogy of mixes, starting with the ethereal “Human”, followed by the expressive “Shades” and closing with the obscure “Pure”, which received wide recognition and resulted in numerous local residencies, notably in “Underclub”, “The Base”, “2000″ and “Spray”.
Responding to the need to further promote the growing scene, Likatek started the internationally recognized series of events named “Episode”, which in turn became popular for its consistency and the charisma of the resident and guest DJs – granting Kosovo a must-visit status on the international clubbing maps and earning it the name of one of the most solid, compact scenes in the region. Close to its 6th anniversary, “Episode” now holds resident nights in Kosovo, Albania and Holland.
Likatek continues to spread the “Episode” feature sound, a crowd-friendly blend of techno, tech-house and minimal, with regular appearances in some of the main events and festivals, while sharing the stage with the likes of Mills, Smith, Acquaviva, Pappa, Slam, Deetron, Feos, Agoria, Preach, Dundov, Deetron, Emerson, Beyer, Umek, Carola, Vigorito, Fischer, Murphy, Felipe, Nasty, Moshic, Fortier, Martinez, Klein, Onionz, Richards, Mothersole, Tarkan, Haris, Timika and many others.
