Crimson & Chrom
These two vinyl-fetishist lads, both hailing from Szekesfehervar started to pull their IKZ events together around a decade ago, mostly concentrating on not so well-known styles in Hungary, under the umbrella of Mehhkasaula, a local cultural organization. As their sound is it's own animal, soon they've found themselves in the middle of the blooming underground of Budapest.
The next milestone was the establishment of the trio of Lick the Click, together with Isu. These clubnights soon grew out to be one of the most charismatic event-series of Budapest. These parties are mostly revolving around minimal, deephouse, but detroit- and other fusion-sounds are also involved, just as such guest artists like Audio Werner, Daniel Stefanik, Frivolous, Butane, Losoul, 2562, Ame, Soulphiction, Moritz Von Oswald, Deadbeat or I:Cube.
Crimson and Chrom became favoured invitees of quality underground organizer crews and parties as Ablak-A-Dubra, Hairy, Cinetrip, Hypnosis, Bomb The Jazz, Girls & Mathematics, Chi, NVC, Test, Electronic Beats or the Camp for Minimal Music Lovers. They can also be found behind the booths of the biggest Hungarian festivals, as Sziget, Volt and Balaton Sound.
Due to to versatility and the quality of the C+C sets, the guys were supporting act at the Hungarian gigs of artists like Carl Craig, Mike Huckaby, At Jazz, Quarion, Dixon, Henrik Schwarz, Todd Terje, Alex Barck, Red Rack'em, The Time And Space Machine, Luke Solomon, Rainer Trueby, Layo & Buschwacka!, Andrew Weatherall, Bruno Pronsato, The Revenge, The Sister Of Mercy...
As the two C's prefer the classic setup of vinyls and two decks, they usually try to avoid homogeneity in their sets, orientating to radical changes. Their viewpoints on music involve avant-garde novelties with the classical formulae, fusing punk, acid, jazz, tech, dub and dark elements into one individual whole.
Their inspiration comes from DJ Koze, Pepe Bradock, Chateau Flight, Ame, Red Rack'em, I:Cube, Maurice Fulton, Prins Thomas, Alan Abrahams, Dixon, Michael Baumann, Matthew Dear, James Murphy, Ben Stranger Cook, Bowie, The Cure, The Creatures, Bauhaus. Their sets were played in radio shows of Mike Huckaby and Red Rack'em's Smuggler's Inn.
They constantly try to find the balance of emotions and dancing, and they never say no to turn the place upside down.
