ADOO (realname: Admir Hasanbegović), born 1985 in Pula (Croatia).
ADOO is a house, tech-house and minimal techno artist, DJ & producer from Pula, Croatia. His music is a mixture of recognizable groovy bass lines which won’t let you easily escape the dance floor, variations of strict and tribalesque percussion, cunning movable rhythm sections intertwined and packed in warm arrangements or sometimes very earnest, yet metaphorical packages.

For years he was active in following and monitoring the Croatian scene until he realized he wanted to be a DJ. Four years later he began working with turntables and developing his own style. As a DJ he performed in many local clubs (Monvi Centar, La Noche, BPM, White Horse, Joy) and the famous church of techno – Fort Bourguignon, trying to present his DJ-ing virtuosity and connection with the audience.
