The Hague-based artist has partnered up with local Mario Novak to found Pitch.
Pitch is located in Zagreb's city centre, and opened its doors in late December. The idea for the shop came about after van der Star and Novak met at a radio show some time ago. It was the latter that subsequently found the store's would-be location, and took care of the subsequent renovations. He's now responsible for its day-to-day running, while van der Star contributes from his base in The Hague. It's the first store dedicated to electronic music to open in the Balkans since the '90s, and operates from Monday-Friday. In-store sessions from touring DJs will go down regularly.
