The members of Nina Bulatovix worked together at Mariborski radio Študent (MARŠ) (Maribor’s student radio), where they were able to channel their musical creativity and independent thought. They helped organise Solar Pulse Music, a series of concerts promoting innovative rock music held in Gustaf Hall, Pekarna, and actively participated in Pekarna Magdalena Network. Prior, they were all musically active: was one of the driving forces in Coma Stereo, was the drummer for the indie rock bands We Can't Sleep at Night and (with his brother Marko), and brought his vocal experiences (Vojtiva 8, Trak47) to the Nina Bulatovix table.
The band played a few concerts and they recorded their gig in April 2010 at Scena Festival and in the same year released it as a CD. Later, the rhythm section decided to relocate to Ljubljana, so the rehearsals moved as well – from the Pekarna Cultural Centre to Metelkova mesto Autonomous Cultural Zone. Although the band members were involved in many other musical and also political projects, a new record was never a question.
Nina Bulatovix's album Jate was released by KAPA Records in November 2014 (the eleven songs featured on it were recorded in two days in a D.I.Y. studio in Pekarna Cultural Centre). It was very warmly received and voted amongst the three best Slovene albums of 2014 by the music editorial of Radio Študent.
