Bakula (formerly Bake Junior) is a DJ based in Šibenik (Croatia). Musical beginnings of this laidback guy can be traced back to 2008 when he started to learn basic DJ techniques from his father, who is one of the pioneer DJs in Dalmatia.
As a kid, he would get thrilled by house music, especially with it’s classic 90’s sound. At the same time, while digging through his father’s record collection, he gradually discovered the world of groove through disco, funk and soul. Through the years he has played a great number of gigs which have built his performance but also enriched his taste in music. Nowadays, his DJ sets are diverse, telling the story through house, disco, funk, breakbeat, you name it. One thing is for sure, you can hardly predict which way is the music gonna flow in his next gig.
In 2015 he started his own radio show Groove Station on Radio Soundset which hosted both veteran and young DJs from Croatia. Eventually this idea evolved into clubbing events under the same name with several parties held in clubs at Sibenik and Zadar. In 2018 he became a resident DJ of RatCat organisation which hosts some of the most interesting DJs of today’s clubbing scene in most unusual and attractive locations.
Always aspiring after creativity, his morning DJ set from Šibenik City Hall was one of his most remarkable moments of 2018.
In 2018 he was also nominated by the Croatian music award Ambasador in the category ”Young DJ of the Year”. With his RatCat collective he won a remarkable number of Ambasador awards (Collective of the Year, Party Concept of the Year, Award for Clubbing Scene Development, New Clubbing Program of the Year, 3rd Best DJ – Lawrence Klein).
As for what the future brings, 2019 can only get more creative in every perspective.
