MERLIN is a downtempo/psychill project by Slobodan Gacesa.
Slobodan was always interested in music and from the beginning of his life the music took an important role. Slobodan showed his talent and passion for music by playing piano at the age of 10. After he learned the basics of music theory, he continued to develop his playing abilities.
He got into electronic in the year 2000, and after a few years in 2005 he started to play music on local events, but also to explore basics of music production. Together with his friend Dalibor Delic he made the progressive trance act 'Flegma' in which he participated until 2008. Later he started to work on a new project called 'Vertex' with Nikola Kozic aka Zyce until today. After a few years into making progressive trance music, Slobodan started to work on a new downtempo, psychedelic chill out project and so 'Merlin' was born.
In this project Slobodan kept the clean melodic and deep atmospheric style as Vertex usually does, but in a slower tempo.
He has collaborated on a few tracks with Sufi’s Life (Jovan Tot aka Middle Mode). In the year 2014 Merlin became a member of Altar Records. Then the debut album “Magic Potion” was released the 17th of June 2015.
