Since we are in web format, this will be the first time we have hosted a DJ. There is a certain sympathy for the life story of Dimitrije Smiljković, in addition to the musical selection that is harmonized with the program of the Regganeracija radio.

Dimitirije, or DJ Ruffneck Smille was born in Germany. At the same time, his roots come from this area – the former Yugoslavia and today’s Serbia. We emphasize the former Yugoslavia because, since 1985, Ruffneck Smile has never visited the place of his ancestors.

The reason for that is in Dimitrije’s decision not to join the military formations in 1991. Most Serbs in Germany at the time paid an inevitable bail not to be prosecuted. Dimitrije refused to go to the army and did not have the money to spare the judicial authorities. Until today, he has not had legal opportunities to visit Serbia. And that’s where we’ll end the war-political stories.

Ruffneck Smile has an impressive collection of reggae records that number fifteen thousand copies. Listening to the music selection he sent to Radio Regeneracija, Ruffneck favors Studio One.

Ruffneck Smille vinyl Collection

Ruffneck Smile has been a regular and welcome guest in Jamaica since 1991. He always loads his bags with vinyl when he goes home.

On a guest appearance with Galeb in the podcast “Angelast,” Hornsman Coyote said that records or vinyl from Jamaica have a unique sound and smell. Hence, it is not surprising that Dimitrije prefers to buy directly from that market.

Ruffneck Smile is part of Jamaica’s reggae and Rasta community, so you can hear him spinning riddims from vinyl at “Inna De Yard” gatherings. Ruffneck is also a good friend of Micah Shemaiah, and they are in constant contact.

On Friday, November 26, 2021, from 8 pm CET, you can listen to over two hours of programs prepared by Ruffneck Smille for our radio. The complete program was recorded live from the records and abounds with roots and rub-a-dub sound.

Album Reviews

Album review “Sound Therapy” by Manjul

Analyst: Nenad Pekez Calling the album "sound therapy" is at least ambitious, if not pretentious. By doing so, you impose on yourself the pressure of the listeners who will expect "something more" from such a release than a regular album; they will expect the right therapy. Of course, all this is true if you are not Julien Souletie, a French multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer, and audio engineer better known as Manjul. […]
