Freakin' Disco Short Info

Freakin’ Disco’s style is influenced by electronic music and contemporary jazz. Their first album, named National Jazz Fuckers, was released in 2016 by Budabeats Records, which the online magazine phenomenon.hu has chosen as one of the year’s best albums. They released an EP in 2017 called Live at Bánkitó Festival.
"This music makes the universe between your two ears expand to infinity, and you comprehend Einstein. Feels like you’re in a race, where time has slowed down and pulsates in your palms. Drums, synthesizer, guitar, bass. Four men, kicking in a huge cobweb. Entangled chords, wires, nerves. Perfect interplay." (Péter Kárpáti - dramaturg)

„Freakin’ Disco leads us to such a labyrinth whereby we don’t want to find the exit. We’re not in need of Ariadne’s thread anymore, the Minotaur’s approaching, the door has closed behind our back and we feel like dancing.” (Balázs Latorczai, Szimpla Garden)

The band was founded in 2013 at an open-air fest, after a greatly successful improvisational session. Since then they performed in many clubs and festivals in Hungary. They played as a guest of Korai Öröm in G3 club. They performed before Lajkó Félix and Óperentzia in Akvárium club's Big Hall, they had a full house concert in Toldi club. They played at Sziget festival, Bánkitó, CityMatine, and many more. And in 2018 they were selected and performed in MENT Ljubljana Showcase festival.

Their next album is coming up this autumn!

Their music could be best described by being halfway between jazz and techno. They create modern electronical music on acoustic instruments, bravely using the current technical possibilities. Their concerts are built on a dramatical sweep, similar to a DJ set. The tracks are performed with staggering turns, with exciting, almost heady sounding. They’re all actively engaged in creating music for the alternative theatre scene, which also inspires their music.
