An irresistible need to immerse himself in house music led Bosnian DJ Mladen Tomić to
launch his career, playing clubs in his hometown of Banja Luka, since 1996. Two years later he had made a job of what started as a hobby, establishing a reputation for a sound that mixed deep, tech-house with more tribal rhythms. That pulsing vein continues to be tapped to this day, with track releases and gigs from triple-decker Mladen presenting an infectious blend of deep, tech-house, techno and tribal with energy, variety and a harder sound. Times took an upturn in 1999 when Mladen partnered with fellow Banja Lukan DJ Siniša Tamamović to set up Urban Beat, an organisation that has successfully promoted events and tours in their native Republika Srpska and throughout Bosnia (Banja Luka, Sarajevo, Tuzla, Doboj, Prijedor, Mostar, Bihac, Travnik, Zenica). Hi organised a lot of parties in Banja Luka (clubs Boomerang, Sokolski, Music Hall), which was very important for scene there. In 2002, Mladen added production to his talents, releasing original tracks and remixes across some of Europe’s main techno and electronic labels. First release was In June 06, he unveiled an original four-track EP ‘Neuro’ for Fly Life, ranking highly on download charts, then February 07 saw the release of a remix for Axel Karakasis' track ‘Moving Shadows’ on Adult Records. In period 2008 – 2010 Mladen refreshed his sound, took more tech house and minimal parts in, and got recognizable his own techno style. Releases and tracks (“Tangas”, “Before Sunset”, "Day In Barracuda", “Fly and Drive”, “Dens” etc) on MKT, Loose, Definitive, Night Light, Yin Yang etc have got a big support from big artists such as Adam Beyer, Umek, Dubfire, Reichie Hawtin, John Acquaviva, Sebastien Leger, Markantonio, Rino Cerrone, Joseph Capriati, Marko Nastic, Tevor Rockliffe, Kaiserdisco... and also was highly ranking in all world big music shops (Beatport, Decks Rewcords). Forthcoming releases are due on their own Night Light label, as well as from their previous stables.
