Emanuel Majetić, aka Mr. M, is a member of the Arboretum Kolektiv from Pula. He was born in Pula in 1993, and discovered his passion for music in early childhood, and attended the music kindergarten. He later continued his music education at the music elementary school by playing the violin. After high school, he continued his education in audio engineering at EMI Institute in Zagreb, where he completed his knowledge on audio equipment. New ways of performing music become his interest through these new experiences, and his first festival experiences fueled his interest in the world of DJs. In 2013 he joined the Arboretum Kolektiv and performs as a DJ for the first time. He is a funk, disco, and soul fanatic, and an avid vinyl collector. He performed at local and regional festivals such as Outlook,
Dimensions, Seasplash, EXIT, Arboretum, Visualia, Pula Film Festival, and many others.

Teddy Lee has been active on the scene for a number of years, and since 2004 as a selector and DJ. He would say that he is more of a collector than a DJ. His colourful selections and sets span a range of music styles that, of course, depend on the place, the audience, and the atmosphere.

JULIE (ROOTS DAUGHTERS)
Julie started her music journey in the 1990s – by taking her parents’ CDs! She grew up with hip hop, jazz, funk, bossa, trip hop, and reggae. While her peers listened to Backstreet Boys, she decided to play the saxophone and listen to Portishead and Arrested Development. In the 2000s she fell in love with hip hop, started to write her lyrics, and
experimented with her vocal abilities with Shadow at the studio in Rojc. She meditated with the sound system for the first time at Seasplash and was totally absorbed, and became a sound system addict. In 2008 she moved to Ljubljana and met Miss Moon (Soul Ting). They co-founded Roots Daughters and became resident DJs at DubLab (Channel O, Metelkova). It was then that she discovered her passion for vinyl. She performed at a number of regional and international festivals with Roots Daughters, and after moving to Berlin in 2013, she joined forces with Jahminta Zulu and organised parties with a focus on women’s music and criticising the inequality of our society. Even though she is specialised in reggae and dub, anybody who knows Julie can confirm that she likes to listen to a wide range of music, so this time she prepared her favourite soul, funk, disco and highlife records and hits – do not miss!
