One week after the official opening of DokuFest, Sonic Transmissions made Friday and Sonic Transmissions/Virtual DokuNights live up to their name. In collaboration with Rave Travel, the Kosovo-based agency focused on musical event organization, and the Embassy of Austria in Pristina, Steve Michael, Max Kernmayer, and Drenique were the live acts of August 14th.

After doing the tour of Vienna’s clubs with his particular pumpin’ tech-house sounds, Max Kernmayer found himself playing back-to-back with Steve Michael, another Austrian artist focused primarily on the house genre, during the one-hour long performance. Since the first minutes, the duo plunged in the world of rhythm and beats and instantly made sure to draw in everybody following from the other side of the screen. Even though in distance with the audience, both the artists performing at the same time created a safe space to share with everybody by drinking beer and making good sounds, setting the example of what a good Friday should look like.

Shortly after, Kosovo-born and Vienna-based artist going under the stage name of DRENIQUE extended the duo’s performance for another one hour to everyone’s pleasure. The talented trio’s performances held in the same “stage” as perceived by the same background in both live acts, it was possible to imagine oneself with a sweet front row ticket, giving free access to artists’ just as sweet dance moves and energy, which they perfectly managed to transmit on-screen.

If you accidentally missed them, Steve Michael x Max Kernmayer x Drenique’s Sonic Transmissions are up for viewing online. All the upcoming performances will be live-broadcasted and for free on DokuFest’s platform.
