Founded in 2018, Progresivna Suza (Progressive Tear) started as a small group, formed spontaneously, with passionate fans of progressive house music based in Serbia and Croatia.
One of the goals of this organization is to bring together people around the world who share the same passion, consume progressive as their lifestyle, not knowing the boundaries and are willing to share their feelings through music in a different, more intimate way.
2018 – 2020
During the two and a half year of the group’s existence, as the number of new members increased, Progresivna Suza organized over 20 parties in Belgrade and Novi Sad clubs, named Progressive Tales with the local support of progressive house artists: Bokee, Acim, Jelly For The Babies, Popi Divine , Milos Miladinovic and our well-known hosts were in charge of support: Lukai, Igor D., Aleksandar Markovic, Hobin Rude, Despic, Migazz.
The indispensable podcast starts its first season with a weekly term in cooperation with the DeGori Project in 2018, and then in the second season it gets a new independent name, Progressive Tales. The podcast, in addition to the main episodes, contains a bonus edition, through which an opportunity is opened and also support for non-established young DJs from all over the world.
