Visual artist

Gergő Kovács is a Hungarian creative most notable for their textural, abstracted CGI and graphic design for various experimental music nights, labels and artistic projects. 

They started their practice in 2015 (at the age of 19) by holding bootleg workshops on digital art practices, exhibiting their 3D-rendered artworks, prints and videos next to artists such as Metahaven, Faiyaz Jafri and Hito Steyerl, then briefly trying themselves out as curating Hungary’s first new media exhibition.

After their Zagreb solo exhibition in 2016, they turned away from the field of fine arts, as it did not feel an accessible medium for a person from a worker or Eastern background, such as Kovács themselves. 

Since that, their work is defined by providing consultation, directorial vision, stage design and flexible artistic support for various performers, musicians and festivals, while pursuing their personal interest in folklore, digital cultures, queerness and minority identities.


Record producer 

The mysterious Fred Brown released only a few tracks, mostly in 1987 and exclusively played on the TR 505 and DX5, before completely disappearing from the music scene. He has nonetheless marked the history because these minimalist flashes have established the standard quality of Rodney Baker’s label and its iconic logo, Rockin House - Fred Brown is on the first three outings. Roman Days, the best-known and his most astonishing track, is a kind of imperial riddim with even more synthetic brass than those from Animalsons production, more formally close to the European sound produced at the time (such as Headhunter by Front 242, released the following year) than to the typical sound of the windy city. He also deeply influenced the Belgian New Beat scene since the disc on which he appeared was particuliarly played by DJ and clubs from Belgium.
