 BIOGRAPHY


Mint is Zeljko "Bob" Tomich from Panchevo (Belgrade's satellite city). 
He is a sound technician and a music selector on Radio Panchevo. He is also an assistant for the most popular jazz program in Panchevo. He started producing his own music in 2001 and by time getting more familiar with music software. Although the computer possibilities are vast he is trying to use as many live musicians as possible. He plays guitar and keyboards.
One track from his first demo sent to Cosmic Sounds came out on "Belgrade's Burning vol.2" compilation. Bob currently works on his debut album.

SOUNDS
Bob is into groovy side of things. The music that he produces is a mixture of Hip-Hop, Jazz, Soul and Funk. As a kid he was into Rolling Stones as many of us. He also went through R&B where he picked up the rhythm and then californian surf wave with Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Janes Addiction, especially funky side of things filled with an adrenaline. Moved into Jazz where Miles did a strong impact on him with "In A Silent Way" and "Miles In The Sky". After that everything turned around. Lot of new names started inspiring him: Eric Truffaz, James Carter, Buckshot Lefonque, Medeski Martin & Wood, Bugge Wesseltoft... All that has mixed up with some electro stuff, ambient etc. He is not pursuing any of this styles but as he says: If you mix all of them together and put it in the oven the MINT pie will come out.
