Mauskovic Dance Band
A heady, tropical blend of cumbia, Afro-Caribbean rhythms and space disco, culminating in a vibrant hypnotic groove destined for bustling dance floors. The Mauskovic Dance Band is the brainchild of Amsterdam-based producer and musician, Nicola Mauskovic. A seasoned drummer, he finds himself constantly in demand - as part of Turkish psychedelic outfit Altin Gün, a recent tour with the revival of Zambian legends W.I.T.C.H., and a worldwide tour with psych-pop artist Jacco Gardner, with whom he went on to form the dance-oriented duo Bruxas (released on Dekmantel). Throughout this hectic schedule Nic still found time to begin studio experiments that would eventually lead to several 7" singles, released on Swiss label Bongo Joe Records in 2017 under the name "The Mauskovic Dance Band." Followed by an EP on renowned Soundway Records. For their next chapter, the group dived further into their vast array of echos and spring reverbs, and fine-tuned their sound system-inspired, post-punk aesthetic. A four track EP Shadance Hall, complete with dub versions, came out via Dutch label Dekmantel in 2020, and they will showcase this latest evolution of their sound when they perform this summer.
