What Vazz Does

Hip-Hop

He's primarily a poet and an MC (Master of ceremony). After late elementary school poems he started off with freestyle battling. He continued to improve his freestyle and started to record his first songs. Soon he was the opening act to some of the biggest names in Slovenian Hip Hop. In a matter of 4 years he performed on many known stages across the country and released two solo 8-song albums. So far he collaborated with quite a flamboyant bunch of producers who brought him the consistent sound frame. He supports most of local events and also often performes for a good cause. Mladinski center ULICA had guested him for a Hip Hop course with the kids. He recently did a Live morning show on national radio's second programe Val202. Currently his focus is on Live Band performance and creating true Hip Hop.

DJ-ing

Trough Hip Hop and life he descovered turntables and other music cultures. He fell in love with dance music, jazz, soul, funk, psyhadelic rock, blues, disco, electronic and any other good piece of music really.  So he started to dig deeper and deeper in to music in a wider perspective and he still does every day. With that a person becomes a collector. But he was already looking well under the fingers of best slovenian Dj's like DJ SunnySun, DJ KpoW, DJ Woo-D at their DJ school. Now he started practising spinning vinyls himself and with the help of the mentioned DJ's he's getting more knowledge to this day.

Acting

Also he was part of a high school theater, played in a few short movies and joined Muvit 60x60, a slovenian short film contest twice. He co-wrote two amateur plays and was part of Festival Vizije and Transgeneracije. With the amateur theater he played in Gledalisce Glej, Cankarjev dom, Španski borci and Pozorište Pinokio (Bg). He is currently studying the profession at the AGRFT Academy.

Directing

Vazz directed a music video for Nina Pušlar - Za naju 
and co-directed most of his own videos.

He strives for pure expression, stainless ideas and realness. At the age of 22 he still has a lot to offer, learn and at the same time give back to the community and the people.
