Super World Interview Time: Dani Fazekas aka Szarkulabícc (Sakurabeats)

We’re really enjoying listening to Flowers N Birds by Hungarian lo-fi hip-hop artist Dani Fazekas aka Szarkulabícc so we were delighted when Dani agreed to answer some questions for us here in the big yellow balloon Why did you decide to be a Musician? I started doing graffiti and everything else that falls under the hip-hop culture (including dancing, rapping, skateboarding etc.). This was when my interest in this particular form of art began. What was the first piece of music you loved, and why? My interest in music started when i was sixteen years old, at the end of high school when i was touched by beat maker, Mujo. It was a truly unforgettable experience. It was the first time I encountered lo-fi hip hop. I also loved Gramatik, Al’tarba and DJ. Krush. When I started making music, these songs really influenced me, because i wanted to make hip-hop music without any lyrics (a capella). Music which is simply good to listen to. Making music became my form of relaxation. What is your favourite song that you’ve written and why? My favourite song that I’ve written is Odd Deal from my Flame Flyes EP. I think it’s the most powerful song of mine and I find it funny that I finished the final steps in a WWII (World War Two) cellar that my friend lived in at the time. What’s the music scene like in Hungary? Hungary is a small country and also a small nation and because of this underground culture is making slow, small steps. However, there is a new growing generation and more and more people are joining this wave. Small, but open-minded groups are making things happen. Since Budapest is the capital, the progressive movements are mainly taking place here, but there are also many talented producers and rappers in smaller towns. How do you know when a song you’re working on is finished? I know a song is finished when I feel its vibe and start rapping to it. I can get a better feel of the rhythm by doing so. What song by another artist do you wish you had written and why? I really like British hip hop especially Dirty Dike from High Focus Records, because in my opinion he is the best British rapper and also a great producer. I also enjoy Das Efx a 90’s US band. My favourite song from Dirty Dike has to be Isleham Swamp produced by Joe Corfield. It is undeniable that the music, the video and the acapella are in perfect harmony. The whole thing is really well put together. What artist(s) has been...

The Friday Fangasm: Beaucoup Fish by Underworld

The Friday Fangasm: Beaucoup Fish by Underworld

It’s about 9.30pm, and it’s a humid, picturesque evening as I’m blasting the car out of central London on a four-hour straight run back up north. Underworld’s Beaucoup Fish comes on, and it fits perfectly – the skyline racing ahead perfectly in time with the languid 4/4 kick of ‘Cups’, the synths gliding over the bouncy bassline. I never thought of the album as much of a driving album, but now that I think about it, it makes perfect sense – it’s like an updated Autobahn by an updated Kraftwerk – a reflection of the banality and beauty of modern life, synthesised into a techno album. I was 16 in 1999, and thanks to Britpop, I hate to say I was one of those insufferable berks who bang on about ‘real music with guitars’ all the time. I’d put adverts for the Noel Gallagher union jack Epiphone cut out from Guitarist magazine on my wall, next to posters of anything else that was in Melody Maker that week. All my Shine CDs perfectly placed in the rack above my stereo. My brother Ewan was a part time house and techno DJ at the time, and in the house I grew up in, he would cane dance music loud enough to shake the shared wall between our two bedrooms. As you can probably imagine, I didn’t take too kindly too it at first, and two hormonal teenagers with vastly different tastes in music doesn’t exactly make for an easy going time. Looking back, my mum must’ve summoned some superhuman strength to put up with it all. Anyway, as I got a bit older, my interest in purely guitar based stuff was on the wane, partly due to bands like Radiohead experimenting with new sounds, and partly because I was just a bit fucking bored of it all. I started to branch out into brave new world of electronic music, which allowed even me and Ewan to find common ground on a few albums – Hybrid’s Wide Angle being one, and Underworld’s live record Everything Everything being another. Both of these albums really opened my eyes to a world outside just the guitar, but it was Beaucoup Fish that really made me realise that yes, dance music can be fun, it can be disposable, but it can also be weird, it can be deep, beautiful, and insane. It made me look at music in a totally different way, and for that, they’ll always be a very important band for me. It’s hard to overstate the importance of Underworld. For many like me, they were just indie enough to appeal to hardcore...
