A hypnotic blend of up-to-date electronica with genre crossing as a manifest. In its wide-spectral electronic mix AUTUMNIST combines ambient with soundwalls of breakbeat and hip-hop beats, hitech courses with lo-fi pop, bizzare movie-like atmospheres with extraterrestrial folklore. AUTUMNIST live is an impressive five piece band with electronics, drums, bass, electric guitar and sax/clarinet visually supported with on-stage VJ-ing.
AUTUMNIST is a brainchild of Vlado Durajka. He was known before as ABUSE from the EPs Silt, 4th Floor Sinking (both Kurare Records, 2001) and Sleepfields (Deadred Records, 2002) as well as from remixes for bands Ectasy of St. Theresa, Khoiba, Veneer, Mimetic and many others. His highly acclaimed first studio album The Great Outdoors (Deadred Records, 2005), was followed by numerous live appearances, including Austin‘s South By Southwest, with the live band and VJ supporting Durajka‘s laptop. The first, eponymous release under a new monicker AUTUMNIST was released in January 2009 and was awarded The Best Album
2009 - Choice Of Critics at the most prestigious slovak awards organized by the national broadcast Radio FM. The latest album Sound Of Unrest (Deadred/Starcastic Records, 2013) was released in June 2013 and was followed by Tour Of Unrest accross middle Europe‘s clubs. The band appeared also at several well-known European and American festivals and supported on stage renowned international projects like Recoil, Laika, Cinematic Orchestra, Mouse on Mars and so on.
