Unknown records from late 70s and 80s Yugoslavia find new audience via Luka Novaković and Vanja Todorović, the brains behind indie label Discom

by David Solomonoff

Belgrade in the 1980s was a hotbed for new wave, electronic and synth pop sounds. It wasn’t so unusual to know a rock musician or someone who played in a new wave band. With so much music being produced, not just in Belgrade but across all major cities of former Yugoslavia, it was inevitable that after the political breakup of the 90s, some of this rich musical legacy was either overlooked or lost. It’s thanks to the dedication of Luka Novaković and Vanja Todorović, the brains behind indie label Discom, that unknown records from late 70s and 80s Yugoslavia are finding a new audience.
