About

Pantaloons is a Slovenian band with a unique music genre and energetic stage performance. Luka Belič (saxophone), Aljaž Markežič (sousaphone), and David Nik Lipovac (drums), a vibrant and sometimes a bit (z)bouncy trio, first met in 2016 when they started experimenting with musical melodies and rhythms in a jam session form. After a few acoustic compositions, that are well represented on the Pantaloons EP (2019), their genre evolved to electronic dance music with a hint of jazz, funk, breakbeat, dubstep, and more. As Radio Študent’s choice for the concert tour Klubski Maraton in 2019, Pantaloons trio got the chance to shake up the Slovenian music scene. Furthermore, in 2020 they performed at the international music festival MENT in Ljubljana and the Liverpool Sound City Festival, supported by INES#talent 2020. In 2021 they performed at the Electric Castle festival in Romania and European Youth Event in France. They opened 2022 with concerts at A38 Hajó in Budapest and Eurosonic Noordeslag in the Groningen, and toured in Bratislava, Prague, Leipzig and Brussels. In May 2022 they released their first album “Zbounce”.
