Tamara Dinka and Nikola aka Nitkov are two quite controversial individuals, who combine the non compatible components from their own fields of imagination in a domain of music, painting and comics. Attracted by mutual ideas and fascination obtained from the different genres in music, they’ve met and formed the band with the silly name Illegal Emotions. Illegal Emotions begun to function in 2004., at first as an answer on of that time popular Electroclash music, not with the aim to caricature it, but with the truly devotion in accomplishing ideas in electronic, punk and pop music. Their music is pretty raw and analogue, connected with all mentioned genres, but again-by its subject and form very different. Texts are outermost philosophically naïve, frank, aroused under the influences of underground culture. On their concerts you can meet not only fans and friends, but very variable population, from punks and clubbers, to freaks and diplomats. They are performing live from their early beginnings, and they’ve been playing in clubs such as “Akademija”, “Kocka”, “Povetarac”, “Underworld”, “Parafin” , “Kulturni Centar GRAD”in Belgrade, “Mocvara” in Zagreb, Museum Of Contemporary And Applied Arts “MAK” in Vienna, Wiener Festwochen Festival, and also on the Exit festival in Novi Sad, Elektrana stage (2006., 2007.). It is good to mention their release “Six Sexy Songs” in 2005., for the independent label Cold Trinity, collaboration with electrohardcore band Apparatchik, and also with electronic duo from Belgrade “G+Shame” (for the song “Midnight Express”), couple of compilations and music for the trash horror film “Klabirint”, directed by Alexandar Maricic. After 7 years of functioning, the band extended in two ways, so Tamara and Nikola nowdays are working as DJs and the projects Alone and Magmatrakt. And, who knows what will happen next.
