Drummer of the year 2018

By Max Pain

Marko Milovanović - Max wasn’t simply a funky drummer, he was the Funk-Rock Drummer. And all you have to do to understand how he earned that famous nickname is to listen to the music he recorded with the Godfather of Coke, Marko Milošević - Mare. Max appeared on stage and on record with Mare—often alongside his band brother, guitarist Igor “Ziggy” Panić—during the singer’s late-2018, and the uniquely syncopated, ridiculously grooving rhythms he played on tracks like “Novac”, “Budi ono što jesi” and of course “Budjenje” not only provided the hook to thousands of future punk-rock tracks, they taught generations of drummers what it means to groove, and they set a bar for creativity and execution that few, if any, have ever crossed.
