Time for the 140th release on Stripped Recordings from Progress Inn with an EP enitiled “Bettas” featuring two Original tracks. The aforementioned title track and “Slant” with remixes coming from Rich Curtis & Michael A. Progress Inn is the DJ/production duo consisting of Janko Dragovic and Igor Kadic. Both guys, originally from former Yugoslavia, are currently based in Perth, Australia. As Progress Inn, they make and play a variety of music, but their main sound is a blend of progressive, house and techno with the philosophy that it has to be groovy and it has to be deep.
They started DJ-ing together and releasing their music in 2008. In 2009 they embarked on their first European tour. They delivered their trademark energetic sound around Europe, appearing at gigs in Spain, Slovakia and Serbia. They played to crowds who fell in love with their music as much as people from Perth! In 2010 they established themselves firmly as one of Perths favourite acts culminating in the appearance at Stereosonic Festival, which was followed by their appearance at Future Music Festival and Creamfields in 2011 and 2012.
Ranking number 1 in the Perth Dance Music Awards in the Best Progressive DJ category in 2010 and 2011, Progress Inn gigs have been hailed by many as exceptional. In their sets Igor and Janko seamlessly weave their broad musical influences through energetic and groovy music that always has the dance floor burning. By utilising two laptops and MIDI controllers, they manage to create a rich sound and emotive atmosphere that is quite unique. They have supported numerous world class acts such as Hernan Cattaneo, Sasha, Timo Maas, James Zabiela, Lee Burridge, Guy J, Robert Babicz, Radio Slave, Xhin, Satoshi Tommiie, 16 Bit Lolitas, James Holden, Stephan Bodzin, Yousef, Kasey Taylor and Jamie Stevens to name a few.
Their productions have been getting a lot of attention as well and they have releases locked in for Replug, Open, Contrast, 3rd Avenue etc. To date they have had releases out on some fantastic labels like Vapour, Temporum, Bermudos, Soulfire, Baroque and many more. They also run their own label, Obstacles Recordings, which they use to promote all sorts of quality music. Their tracks have been supported by numerous world class DJs like Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Cid Inc, Anthony Pappa, Kasey Taylor, Marcelo Vasami etc.
Expect to hear the name Progress Inn a lot more in 2014 as they take on Europe and the rest of the world!
