Vladimir Cetkar

Soul-Funk-Jazz-Retro meets 21st century Vladimir Cetkar's new material, just recorded in Dubway studios in NYC, took a variety of music critics by storm already. He has been hailed by international critics as one of the most exciting names in his genre, a fresh and upcoming music force which is unique in today's music industry. What you hear is a multitalented artist, producing, composing, orchestrating, arranging and performing (guit + vox) his original music, a consummate musician who has already impressed many of his personal influences ranging from legendary producers, composers, arrangers such as Bob Esty, Patrick Adams, Guitar legend George Benson, and some of today's leading DJ/producers such as Dimitri from Paris. He regularly headlines performances at some of the finest music venues and festivals in US and Europe, such as Blue Note, Catalina Jazz, Iridium, Blues Alley, Sziget Festival, and many more. His evident musical influences may transport you back in time to the musical era when bands like “Chic” and “Earth Wind and Fire” ruled the musical cosmos. But Vladimir ads contemporary production, preparing a strong future for this genre of music. “This Macedonian soul man mashes disco and fusion into luxurious pop concoctions. Think George Michael fronting Steely Dan in a cocktail bar.” (TimeOut, NY)

"Now that' s real magic ." (Nu-Soul Magazine, USA)

" . . . full of catchy grooves straight out of times past and some (songs) such as 'Born for the Screen' are destined to become anthems in their own right in the future." (Smooth Jazz, Germany)
