— You are based in Hungary. Did Hungarian culture have in influence on your artistic development? And how is the scene over there doing right now?
— This is probably the hardest question to answer briefly. But I will try. While in Budapest almost any kind of electronic music can achieve success and sell-out parties, in the countryside it's much more difficult. As soon as I leave Budapest and go to a smaller city in my home country, Hungary, many places, unfortunately, lag very much behind regarding music. It's a very difficult situation for us, disc jockeys. In many cases we get sweaty during a DJ set, but we are disc jockeys, and our job is to entertain the audience, we have to deal with this situation as well.
Of course, there are a few clubs in the countryside where I can also give my full musical potential, but these parties are either organised by us or by some of the music brands I work with. But maybe what I'm about to write will give you the full picture. Huge local brands that I look up to for their work bring world stars to Budapest, like Richie Hawtin, Dubfire Marco Carola, Nic Fanciulli, Erick Morillo, Loco Dice, Julien Jeweil, Solomun, and I could go on for minutes with names only in Budapest and Lake Balaton; and one or two bigger cities can organise successful parties as well. With such a background and a successful past, it would be evident and right that these brands would be present in every city. It would be a much better direction for the music culture in Hungary. That is why I have now started to work on my international career. I would like to play more abroad, where I can maximise my musical potential.
I go regularly to Costa Rica, London and some other super places, and I really enjoy these parties. The audiences are very grateful and it's a fantastic feeling to be welcomed with such love by the people there. I really crave those feelings. Don't get me wrong! I live in a super place, I love to play music, but as I wrote and as you may have read, to live up to the profession and the audience is not always an easy task.
