Propaganda VJ-team is primarily concerned with the transformation of music into compelling visual experiences that exploit the emotional state of affairs in the audience. Known for the incredible energy that emanates from
their performances, Propaganda strives to unite the surrounding space, the audience and the music into a single audio-visual experience.
Propaganda was formed in Germany back in 2004 by graphic designers / visual media artists Emer and Gruuver. Believing and standing for open access, Iti joined the VJ-team in 2006. Ever since, the team has besides performing at festivals and events both in Estonia and abroad, also been actively involved in developing and promoting the Estonian VJ-scene. Propaganda was given the VJ Highlight Award in March 2007 at Prix Mobius Nordica / Pixelache VJ Festival in Helsinki.
Dj Jaagup Jalakas is the creator and also a devoted resident DJ of Plektrum festival as well as manager and program director of the the most alternative venue in Tallinn, Von Krahl with monthly events focused on techno and electro. He is usually accompanied on stage by a laptop, emitting sounds of techno, acid, tech house and minimal over and into the crowd.
