A second album ‘Inscape’ and a clutch of EP’s garnered yet more praise and cemented his reputation as an artist with immense talent and one worth keeping a very close eye on in the future. ‘Extasis EP’ is his much anticipated first release since 2009 and marks his return after a period that has seen him divert his attention to composing music for film and TV, including, most notably, one Oscar winning and one Oscar nominated documentary [with producer Ivor Guest] and another for which his soundtrack was nominated for an Emmy – as well as contributing music to various award winning dramas. He has also been busy applying his magic touch to recordings by the likes of Brigitte Fontaine, Skye [Morcheeba] and Grace Jones, collaborating with ambient pioneer Steve Roach and Raf & O, whilst rolling out the occasional mind-bending remix. His music is an intelligent fusion of influences from folk, medieval and classical to krautrock and electronica. He blends acoustic and electronic instruments and sound sources including voices and field recordings, and he has developed an intuitive and fluid use of digital production tools through which he squeezes, teases and shapes this material.
His complex and restless rhythms carry an echo of his half Hungarian backround and its rich musical history. His production skills are edge of the seat, playful and asymmetrical - a powerful assimilation of recent trends that mellows with repeated listens to reveal a strong melodic instinct.
