MVRK, aka Márk Kövér, the 24-year-old Hungarian producer has been messing around with beats since he was 17 and got his first release when he was 20. Since then, he had 10 tracks released, 13+1 Noisia Radio plays, and this is only the beginning.
Whilst taking pride in having been collaborating with Hybris and Current Value, today is also a release day for him: “Fourier” is featured at Delta9’s “From The Streets Vol. 4”. In addition, an MVRK & Screamarts collab, “Infinite Funk”, with a Disprove remix is also forthcoming there. Keep your eyes peeled!
Márk was kind enough to share his musical influences with us, so here is what he’s been digging.
Madlib: Mystic Bounce
In my humble opinion, this dude is one of the best producers alive. As you’ll hear, he was on this level 17 years ago as well, brilliant!
Bulletproof: The Nephilim (Kemal & Rob Data Remix)
This gem was ahead of its time for like ten years! I believe it’s vinyl only, so I haven’t had the chance to play it out live. I hope there’s a digital version coming, like a couple Kemal tunes in the past few months.
Funkadelic: Maggot Brain
I discovered this tune quite a while back, then I forgot about it and just found it again recently. Eddie Hazel is a criminally underrated guitarist, though, so I’ll just leave this tune here to make some more hype for him.
Commix: Underwater Scene
I can’t really think of a deeper drum and bass tune than this one. Genre-defining one, really. I haven’t played it out many times but it was always great to mix it, it works really well between two intense tunes.
Aphex Twin: #3
As a producer, I like this one because it’s made of the least elements possible but still really expressive. As a listener, I find it a really beautiful tune. Great for travelling.”
