Pookie has also performed gigs across Canada, Europe and Scandinavia.

Pookie has also been promoting events for over a decade. Throughout this time he has brought more than 100 foreign DJs to Serbia and has strived to establish the Serbian club scene at a global level. He has collaborated with all the major festivals in the region (Exit Festival, Belgrade Beer Fest, Green Beat Festival, Urban Experience, MTV Events, HMK Music) and was also the Managing Director of ‘Andergraund’ and ‘Bassment’, clubs that were repeatedly voted as the best in the country.

More recently, Pookie has placed his focus in the studio. In partnership with Marko Milicevic (Gramophonedzie), he has produced the soundtrack for ‘Big Brother’ in Serbia and has since collaborated with Dave Floyd. In addition to their output on Ambasada, Dave and Pookie have signed tracks to Sleaze (U.S.A.), Berwick Street (U.K), Lekker (U.K) as well as working alongside the likes of The Shapeshifters, Cedric Gervais, Yousef, Delicious, Stephen M, Greg Stainer and Alex Miles.
