ABOP - Live Electronic Live Act in Zagreb

ABOP Short Info

ABOP is an exclusively live band playing electronic music with two drummers sitting against each other, kicking into one bass drum and building the rest of their drum sets around it. Consequently they have two hi-hats, two snares, two tom toms and few cymbals for each of the drummers, they also have two synth players each on one side of the stage, and behind all of them is a bass player on a a bass riser. The visual description is necessary because ABOP is both audio and visual festival threat.

There are no triggers involved in the drum sets, completely acoustic drum sound with natural latency between the two drummers and pick-style bass give a punk flavour of the bend in contrast to machinery precision and overproduction of the synths. Style differs from song to song, but whether it is based on techno, big beat or drum'n'bass their music is always danceable. The members of the band are all long-time active musicians on Zagreb's music scene playing in both major (Elemental, Pips Chips & VideoClips, Lollobrigida...) and indie bands of the local scene.

ABOP is an acronym for "After je Bolji Od Partya", literally translated to After is better than the party.

ABOP - When party ends - After begins.
