Sensing the call of the beat in the deep, tech and funky house that swept the continent
in the late 1990s, Bosnian knob-twiddler Sinisa Tamamovic hit his own decks with an endless string of gigs in his hometown of Banja Luka, Republika Srpska.
Nearly ten years on, Sinisa has established a reputation for throwing mind-numbing parties across Europe, attracting a legion of followers willing to cross borders to get a taste of his twisted techno, tech-house and minimal beats.
Since 1999 Sinisa has successfully partnered with fellow Banja Luka DJ Mladen Tomic in their URBAN BEAT organization. Quickly recognizing a niche to fill in the recovering Bosnia, Urban Beat has evolved as probably the country’s foremost promoter of events and parties by booking top drawer international names to satisfy a hungry home crowd.
That success pays off this winter with the landmark launch of NIGHT LIGHT RECORDS, the brainchild of Sinisa and Mladen. NIGHT LIGHT will showcase its solid roster of releases via established international distribution network TRIPLE VISION, based in the Netherlands.
Working under the banner of Urban Beat, the Banja Luka DJ duo has successfully built events and tours in their native Republika Srpska and throughout Bosnia. Sinisa has also played abroad numerous times, including clubs and music festivals such as Glasgow(Sub Club, Scotland), Edinburgh(Club Berlin, Scotland), London, Essex (Dance Crusade Festival, England), Birmingham (England), Karlsruhe(Club Neo Tokyo, Germany), Tarancon (Zoo Club, Spain), Komorno (Slovakia), Zeleni Gaj (Pulse Festival, Slovenia), Sezana (X-mas Festival,Slovenia), Nova Gorica (Castle Party, Slovenia), Maribor (Martin Krpan, SLO), Trebnje (Club Afrika, SLO), Beograd (Andergraund, Energija), Novi Sad (EXIT Festival, YU), Nis(Nisomnia Festival, Techno brucosijada, YU), Kragujevac (Club Ex Jobs, YU), Sombor (YU), Podgorica (Club Debela Berta, CG), Herceg Novi (Club Forte Mare, CG), Kotor (Secondo Porto, Crna Gora),Sutomor (Crna Gora), Preluk - Rijeka (Club Fun Academy, CRO), Pula (Fort Bourguignon, CRO),Rovinj (Temple Club, CRO), Makarska (CRO), Zadar (CRO), Osijek (CRO), Krizevci (CRO),Skoplje (Makedonija), Bitola (Madekonija), Prijedor, Trebinje, Sarajevo, Tuzla, Mostar, Bihac, Zenica, Travnik, Doboj, Zavidovici, Brcko and many more...
Sinisa has been resident of the most important clubs across his country, including Club Boomerang and Music Hall (Banja Luka) and is seen as a ground-breaker for the house-techno scene in the region. He has played alongside most leading international DJs.
His first original release SIGN 1 EP came on Dutch label Fly Life in December 2005, swiftly followed two months later with the originally-titled EP SIGN 2. The download fave DESTRYER EP came in March 06 on BASSETHOUND, followed by a May remix for Pedro Delgardo on Adult Records. Since then, Sinisa has put out a stream of original tracks and remixes for international names – and continues to do so on his own Night Light label, as well as from previous stables.
