Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Laszlo Papp (1985) , founder of NVC, has been making music with PC since he’s 12. He also started djing then, with his Gemini Pmx-7 two-channel mixer, a tape- and a cd player in school camps. He fell in love with electronic music, when he got his first jungle, goa and breakbeat selections around '98. 4 years later he founded his band called Maradandó Változások in which he was the lead singer and guitarist. Accoustic-based and electronic music have always been both present in his life, he can’t live without neither – in 2010 he also played the guitar in the legendary hungarian band called Anima Sound System. Subotage was formed in 2004 with two members at a local festival and their first gigs mainly consisted of unannounced, unexpected performances in the night-life of Budapest. In the beginning they played psychedelic from which they quickly moved on to tech-trance. This was the connection point between the past and the present, as the leading tech-trance artists Midi Miliz became well known in the electronic music scene under the name Extrawelt.Today Subotage only consists of one member, his sets move from rolling minimal techno to melodic cutting edge tracks, but under the alias Nitelight he also likes to play experimental electronica, ambient, triphop, dubstep, downtempo and several other styles. But it is rare to catch him playing as Nitelight in clubs, rather at festivals or exclusive venues, such as the Institute of Contemporery Architecture in 2007 or the reception of the german cultural attaché in 2009. Another proof of his wide scale musical taste is that he played his first vinyls under the name Megalovirus mixing darkstep, techstep and drum & bass.In the past few years Subotage has played in the most important clubs in Budapest and he is a frequent guest at the Balaton Sound, Sziget and Ozora festivals. He has played several times in Germany and also in Serbia and Bulgaria. He has played at the same stage with artists like Chemical Brothers, James Holden, Extrawelt, Ellen Allien, Moby, Roysopp, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tricky, Apparat, Stephan Bodzin, Oliver Huntemann, Fairmont, Florian Meindl, Petter or Martin Eyerer, Anima Sound System and he is a resident dj of the club night series Casino Bangkok.
