A band with a modern and virtuosic feel, whose new album Swing Resistance, planned for 2022, will surely make you dance! The French group created a unique solution from the atmosphere of the Roaring Twenties and the modernity of the group feeding on hip-hop, electro beats or reggae pulses.
DJ Bootsie Quartet
Advanced hip-hop beats, electronica, scratch, samples from films and folk songs and from jazz...a masterful cutting edge combination of all of the above constituted the tracks of producer-turntablist DJ Bootsie for the past twenty years.
Due to his unique sound he managed to stand out of the international hip-hop electronic scene even with his first album (The Silent Partner) already, that was released on Ugar Records in 2004. His subsequent albums were released by the highly respected british BBE Records, with international bigboys like J-Dilla, Pete Rock, DJ Vadim and DJ Jazzy Jeff, or Madlib on their roster.
He has produced soundtracks for theatre and cinema and his works were included on well-known compilation albums, brand events and fashion shows. (Buddha Bar, DJ Cam-My playlist, Mercedes Benz Mixtape, Marc Cain, Vogue Germany, CSI tv sequel, etc.)
The Hungarian State Opera has comissioned him to produce uptodate adaptations of two movements of the most important national historic opera (László Hunyadi by Ferenc Erkel) as well as Richard Wagner’s Twilight of the Gods and Rhinegold.
Back in the mid-90’s he was co-founder of the groundbreaking underground hip-hop formation the Against the Current, with which he won the Fila Rap Jam talent show out of 150 competitors.
He also won the DMC championship back in 1996 in Hungary and ran in the subsequent world championships.
As a member of Yonderboi´s original quintet, Bootsie´s contribution was integral in making the debut album Shallow and Profound, which has then enjoyed international success that remains unprecedented for a hungarian artist until this day.
Three years of heavy touring all over Europe followed, after which Bootsie co-founded the Zagar outfit, where he played for the next fifteen years. DJ Bootsie composed the music for the animated film “Ticket” by Oscar-winner Ferenc Rófusz.
He has been the music director of the Hungarian Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and the Central European Fashion Show called “Gombold újra” since 2010.
January 2018 he perforomed at the Euphoria Festival in Shenzen, China. In the same year the Budapest Spring Festival has seen the premiére of his “Tepmo Battle” which was a full concerto piece commissioned for this event that was performed in co-operation with the internationally acclaimed Talamba drummers. The audience gave a standing ovation and critics praised this performance.
As a solo DJ, as well as with his live band of various setups from trio to eleven-piece small big-band, he played at a myriad of clubs, concert venues and festivals in Hungary as well as abroad (in Latvia, Russia, Romania, Slovakia, Czechia, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, the UK, USA, Spain, Portugal and China).
The Allegro Identity album live debut was recently held at the Palace of Arts, this was his third performing return to this holy shrine of top venues of his homecountry.
