What is a battery? According to Oxford dictionary it is “a container consisting of one or more cells, in which chemical energy is converted into electricity and used as a source of power”. So it uses chemical energy to produce power. If inputs define outputs, and music is an input for batteries, then output is a power of music produced by a chemical reaction.
If you go for holidays, batteries are almost unavoidable part of your holiday equipment. For instance, everybody needs a pocket lamp during holidays… for sneaking into a bedroom next to your new companion? For some action in the bushes? To use it after a night swim or skinny-dipping ? You also need batteries for your radio and new friends who share your taste for music? Basically, holding a battery in your hand before the holidays can bring back good memories and ‘hot’ feelings before your trip even started. Try it out!
Music for Batteries compilation refers to the musical output of the current Croatian electronic music. Over the last few years, Croatia has become the host of a number of amazing festivals attracting clubbers from all around the globe which further positioned Croatia on the global clubbing map. We see this as an amazing opportunity to present the electronic music made here in Croatia to the international festival goers. Musically speaking, we keep Music for Batteries dance-floor orientated as in ‘four to the floor’ music form. We keep it open to all while DJs wove unique atmosphere using different music styles.
With the Music for Batteries compilation we have opened up a new arena for expression of ‘Home Made’. This is Project No. 1 of Home Made and along with standard releases we would like to explore possibilities of using the project as a format to work with music in the future.
So, enjoy the summer and take a maximum out of the power of music produced by a chemical reaction.
