Presing Short Info

PRESING is a crossover band formed in Belgrade, Serbia in 1990 by singer and poet Kiza Radović and a guitar shaman Vladimir Krakov. They are a pivotal band of neo-beo sound, an authentic blend of hard garage funk created in Belgrade in the early 1990’s. Presing are “the creative leader of their generation of Belgrade bands”, said Dragan Ambrozić, the editor in chief of Ritam magazine and the selector of Exit and Terraneo festivals in the RTS (national Radio Televison of Serbia) documentary about Presing.

Musically, Presing started as a punk-funk band, and they changed their musical territories passing through funk-rock, psychedelic rock, alt country, post-rock, kraut rock, nu jazz phases until their current fascination with electro-dub. On stage, Presing are a powerful and breathtaking act full of surprises.

The second album 600 nebo (Sixth Heaven) was #1 album of the year 2002 in Yugoslavia, in annual album charts by Blic daily, Reporter monthly and OK Magazin. Presing video “Ritam u kojem stojiš” was #2 video of the year 2002 on the annual music video list by B92 television. Significant gigs: Brzi bendovi Srbije / Belgrade, Sound and Vision Festival / Majdanpek, Podignimo Stupove / Hala Sportova Belgrade, Dosta! (antiwar festival) / Belgrade, plenty of their own concerts in major venues in Belgrade, Serbia and abroad.
