Feeling Hungary? Want more choons? Taste what Headshotboyz have cooked up...

It’s quite a task putting a unique twist on the already twisted fidget house sound, but Headshotboyz from Hungary manage it with casual bravado. Their unique and bold production skills already caught the attention of some of the scene’s main players, and with successful releases on Crux Records and Sick Recordings, plus many more to come they are bound to get heads banging on a global scale.

What would you expect from two fun-loving, thrill-seeking, hard-partying and mad-grimacing guys if they made music? Hard party music that’s fun, makes you smile, jump with excitement and pull stupid faces, of course. And this is exactly what you get from Headshotboyz - and then some more.

These young BMX bandits have been best mates forever, but they forged their musical partnership only a few years ago. DJ Prym (Kristof Ambrozy) and Snifter (Lajos Nadhazi) first became a fixture on (Hungary’s capital) Budapest’s burgeoning drum and bass scene. Their initial quest of being unrivalled party animals soon turned into an urge to create incomparable music, both separately and together. However, after some time focusing strictly on making drum and bass tunes, they picked up on other electronic dance music styles and as their taste in music broadened, so did their production style, spawning a bastard sound of electro, breaks, tech-house, ’blog-house’, ghetto-tech, crunk, baile funk, 2step and nu-rave.

It’s no easy task to label such a beast, so just for the sake of simplicity, let’s call it fidget house with a difference. Headshotboyz are the prime exponents of this steadily evolving genre in Hungary and they look set to gain some well-deserved international recognition with their truly peerless sound. As a matter of fact, they’ve already got praise from some of the scene’s key figures, e.g. Lee Mortimer, The Bulgarian, TJR or Chicago-based label Potty Mouth, as well as track requests and compliments from Bassbin Twins, Stereoheroes, Utah Saints - proof that their music appeals not only to fidget lovers, but to breaks, techno and electro heads also.
