Kalumet


Kalumet (Zoltan Vajda) started his musical career in 1993 as a bass player in a school band. One year later he attended his first electronic dance party and his interests turned toward contemporary electronic music. When his band splitted up, he got a computer and started to create his own sounds with acoustic and electronic instruments such as guitars, percussions, synths, and of course the computer. His first tracks were trance, dub, breakbeat and jazzy jungle tunes. Read more on Last.fm
Kalumet (Zoltan Vajda) started his musical career in 1993 as a bass player in a school band. One year later he attended his first electronic dance party and his interests turned toward contemporary electronic music. When his band splitted up, he got a computer and started to create his own sounds with acoustic and electronic instruments such as guitars, percussions, synths, and of course the computer. His first tracks were trance, dub, breakbeat and jazzy jungle tunes.

In the same time he and his friends founded a party promoter and dj collective project called Alapzaj (Basic Noise). The group was a significant point in the underground techno scene of Budapest. The firstly released track (a remix of the famous Hungarian band, Korai Öröm, 1998) was soon followed by others on several compilations. By this time he had deepened in psychedelic trance and concentrated on producing quality psychedelic music. In 2000 he gave his first live act in an open air party in Hungary, in the same year he released a dub track on the first professional label, Chi Recordings. In the next year he went to Austria to play his first performance abroad. His unique style was highly appreciated so he became a well-known artist in Hungary.

More and more realeses and gigs came, and that time he realised that making musical fusions are the most important things in creating new sounds so he started to mix genres in a tasty manner. His first international big success was his live act on legendary Boom Festival in 1994 in Portugal, where 20 000 people gathered to see the best trance artists of the world. Coming back from Portugal he got the idea to create alteregos for his different new styles so Trevor McGregor, Soundokan and Ork Monk were born that time. The Trevor-sound can be described as a mixture of minimal, tech-house, electro and breakbeat, highly danceble and very modern music. Nowadays he is one of the most innovative artist in the scene, playing with success everywhere he goes: a club in Berlin, a laundry in Cologne, in the mountains of Bulgaria or in the forests of Romania. He is always busy with different projects: making riddims for ragga mc's, playing bass and guitar on a hip hop recording session, composing music for films and theater pieces, running side projects like Rezzonance Dogs, Tupoliev, Monotonists, etc...

In 2006 he joined an online music magazine (psylife.net) where he writes articles, reviews and translations of different materials. Recently he is working on the debut Kalumet album which will surprise the whole scene because it contains a new way of mixing electronics and live instruments. www.kalumet.hu www.myspace.com/kalumetmusic www.myspace.com/orkmonk www.myspace.com/trevmcgregor www.psylife.net www.beefrecords.net Discography: 1998 album title: Recycled (Korai Öröm remix compilation, Vad Pálmák Records) track: 'Tavalyi' 2000 album title: Dub Local (V/A, Chi Recordings) track: 'Galagonya' 2001 Kalumet - 'Galagonya' - Vic's Boombastic remix (EP, Chi Recordings) album title: Heart Tribe (V/A, Deep Smile Rec.) track: 'Liquid Forest' 2003 album title: Psytrance of Hungary (V/A, Freee Magazin); track: 'Aquaflash' 2004 album title: Finest Songs of Cökxpon Ambient (V/A, promo cd) track: 'Never Stop' album title: Ambient Planet vol.1.
