Wckd Nation (SI) - R&B, Neo-Soul, Future Jazz
Wckd Nation is a community of musicians from Ljubljana, Slovenia, which was founded by multi-instrumentalists, composers, producers, and brothers Peter and Žiga Smrdel in Klagenfurt in 2015. The group was initially created as an artist collective from three different countries: Slovenia, Austria, and Croatia. Wckd Nation has since restructured and moved their home base to Ljubljana, where they are further exploring new shapes and sounds of jazz-pop, hard neo-soul and R&B.
In autumn 2018, Wckd Nation released their debut singles Time and Troubles. Both singles were instantly picked up by the biggest Slovenian national radio stations and has been recognized by both music lovers and professionals. The overwhelmingly successful launch put them on the radar of a wider audience, selling out their first headlining shows in Slovenia. In March 2019 they completed their first international tour in the Baltics, where they established a growing fan base outside of Slovenia. The highlight of the tour was their performance at Tallinn Music Week and they also performed at the international showcase festival MENT in Ljubljana. Their singl Come over, Come by won Slovenian national radio contest in 2020.
Luciana (CZ) (indie-soul, jazz, lo-fi)
Goosebumps, charisma and lightness. The Prague-Brno band Luciana was formed in 2019 as a fusion of the charismatic soul singer Luciana Tomášová and Brno musicians. An unmistakable voice, at the same time soft and rough, jazz drums with lo-fi guitar and bass, that's all Luciana is. In 2021, the band released their debut album Fo.
