10 x 4 – Funk Guru

10 x 4 - Funk Guru Neno Bari? aka Funk Guru doesn’t need an extended introduction to Croatian readers. As one of the co-funders of CFSN crew, Funk Guru has been active on the electronic music scene for more than ten years now. He started out as a DJ but soon became one of the scene carriers (he picked his artist name just right) supporting newcomers and young producers, organizing audiovisual workshops and the Illectricity festival, with stars like Modeselektor, Rustie, Solar Bears and Machinedrums. His crew’s next festival edition will happen on the 24th of March, starring The Bug ft. Flowdan and Dorian Concept alongside CFSN members Dubway, feelipa, Josip Klobu?ar, itch, Æon and phillipe. And the Guru himself, of course.
