“What makes Exit so important is the fact that there's nothing else substantial in Serbia that challenges the past or offers local people a viable reason to think things could be better. When the artists visit they love it because it’s a great gig though most don't even realise that they're helping to make history.�

 

With Serbia’s recent history including ethnic cleansing, genocide and war, British promoter Paxton Talbot’s claims are neither overblown nor exaggerated, though he’s wrong about at least one of the artists on this year’s bill.

 

“What makes this gig particularly interesting is the fact that we were bombing Belgrade and Novi Sad just three or four years ago,� says breakbeat pioneer Howie B.

 

“It’s mad when you find out what the fuck we’ve done to these places; or rather, what others have done to them.�

 

The ‘we’ or ‘others’ Howie’s referring to are NATO and the most visible sign of their handiwork in Novi Sad today is the still severed Sloboda (‘Freedom’) Bridge, whose disconnected ends slope at 45º angles into the murky Danube river. Blown up by three cruise missiles at 8pm on the night of 3 April 1999, the clinically cut former 6 lane highway remains a powerful reminder of just how recently ‘the West’ was at war with the citizens of Novi Sad; the same people now flocking to an event headlined by a Western bunch of performers. As German philosopher Martin Luther presciently put it, in the Middle Ages; ‘music is a gift of God. Satan hates music: he knows how it drives the evil spirit out of us.’

Seb Fontaine: Leaving Radio 1 Is Like Leaving A Girlfriend

Seb Fontaine chatted to Skrufff this week about his impending departure from Radio 1 and compared the experience to a mutual break up of a long-term romance.

“I must admit I am a little bit sad about it and there’s certainly a lump in my throat, but we’ve also parted on really good terms, there’s no animosity or bitterness,” said Seb.

“It isn’t a case of ‘you’ve been sacked, fuck off’, in fact, I’m still going to be doing Ibiza for them as well as various other projects later on. It’s sad but sad in a good way.”
