Itch and Phillipe
Programmed for party, they combine the incompatible. Their music is future-retro and they are eternal children who replaced their toys with mixing equipment. Phillitchevanje is musically more laid-back program organized by two cfsn DJs. For that occasion they are taking off their nerdy uniforms and are indulging themselves in true boyish impulses where there are no boundaries and no rules. They are not nostalgic nor do they think that ten years ago everything was better, but instead they are more than happy to remember the moments when we used to play in front of MTV/VIVA TVs. Phillitchevanje is a parade of well-known old and new music numbers mixed with love and feeling for rhythm by the old dancing music-lovers.
