Pop design

Damjan Tomažin / SI

He finished music school for piano accordion and plays drums since he was 16 years old. Beginning was a little bit unusual. There was not a single hero in entire village, who wanted to play the drums. So he was appointed to play them in the band, that was created then. Even drums were very unusual – basically they were 20 liters cans and a lid mounted on the wire.
The first contact with the pop scene in Slovenia was in the year 1984 with band Boogie POP DELAVNICA. In 1986 he joined the band POP DESIGN and this cooperation successfully continues today…

With POP DESIGN he traveled trough a large part of ex-Yugoslavia and some foreign countries too. He recorded album in New York and played at various festivals: POP DELAVNICA, MELODIJE MORJA IN SONCA, EUROVISION SONG CONTEST (YU and SLO), MAGFEST (Macedonia) FESTIVAL IN SPLIT… They recorded 17 projects (cassette or CD) and over thirty videos.

Damjan says:

»By 2013 I was somehow easy going – technically speaking – with a lot of playing on all kinds of stages and I did not pay any attention to techniques of playing and equipment. Mistake. When I bought a new snare I found out that we have great craftsman in Slovenia who makes great drums. I met MANIC drum team trough Luka Pate and I am excited about the sound, innovative approach, service and it’s MADE IN SLOVENIA quality.
I am also glad that I can be a part of MANIC drum team in which they are really masters of playing this instrument and I am always amazed while watching these guys playing. Thumbs up, guys.

Thanks, MANIC drum team!
