Bass Camp Orfű was a prolonged overdose on bass, joy and mates in 2017, too. The friendliest festival in Hungary, where I managed to chat with Compa, aka Will Brown who was, funnily enough, invited by me to play in Orfű. We touched plenty of exciting topics, for instance, his instrumental as well as drum and bass…Continue Reading “Compa: “It was mad, magic, absolutely incredible!” (UnCut version)”

Generally speaking, DJing is thought to be an individual, sometimes even lonely act. This is one of the many reasons why I find this chat with M-Soul and S27 extremely special and valuable. Not to mention their kind willingness to talk to me right before the gig, organised by the cool Dub Flyers crewContinue Reading "M-Soul&S27: “Deep d’n’b is for the mature” (UnCut version)"
The other smashing party closing out 2016 was Fixate at Instant.

Right after Christmas, the Bass Camp guys surprised us again. Their guest was Jay Fairbrass, aka J:Kenzo, whose stylishly eclectic set fascinated the crowd. Not to mention his open and friendly personality! 🙂Continue Reading "J:Kenzo: “Vinyl is final!” (UnCut)"
The first ever Bass Camp Orfű in July 2016 brought a fresh and unique breeze to the Hungarian electronic music scene. Probably its friendly, chilled atmosphere as well as the wide range of selectors and genres could evolve into this special and memorable weekend — thanks, folks! 🙂 Commix, aka George Levings, one of the pioneers was kind enough to chat after his magical, quite prolonged setContinue Reading "Commix: “Being involved in drum and bass is a love/hate thing” (UnCut)"
Right before our national holiday, I was lucky enough to catch Damian Higgins, aka Dieselboy again in Budapest, Hungary. Although he had faced some health issues, he willingly shared his personal views on cooking, the coming elections in the USA as well as on the controversial connection between deejaying and producingContinue Reading "Dieselboy: “It serves no purpose but maybe jerk my own ego off” (UnCut)"
Robyn Chaos, the First Lady of dark drum and bass, the Anger Manager had a Therapy Session gig in Budapest in May.

Mefjus, the Austrian techy destroyer performed at Bladerunnaz Welcomes: Noisia Invites in April 2016 in Budapest. Prior to his set, he was movingly honest about himself and his views. Big up, Martin! 🙂Continue Reading "Mefjus: “If it’s nice, play it twice!” (UnCut version)"
