Tibor Dragan is a melodic house producer from Budapest in Hungary who has a deep and sensual take on melodic house.
We premiered the lead track “Passion” and caught up with him to find out more about the two-track EP…
Hi Tibor Dragan, can you start by telling us about yourselves, and how you first got into electronic music?
Hi, Firstly, I’d like to thank you for your invitation for an interview. I was born in 1985, Budapest, Hungary. I have started to collect vinyl in my early years. I used to go parties many times to Budapest’s nightlife and I always listened to the DJs how they were mixing. I was around 15 years old when I got my first turntables and started to learn mixing. I spent all of my money on vinyl… Anyway, as time has gone I got more and more invitations to play in different parties like Ministry of Sound. I was 22 years old and felt I still needed something more. I started to learn music writing from tutorials etc… I keep trying to improve myself day by day.
Could you talk us through your new track “Passion”, and the EP that it features on?
Passion is a dreamy, smooth, melody deep track. A few months ago while I was working on my new track, as always, a simple melody just came up into my mind so that’s how passion was born. I built it up with different instruments like pianos, cellos, strings etc. The title is simple. Music is my passion. The release also includes another deep and dreamy track called ‘I Don’t Like You’.
How did you meet the team behind Be Adult Music who are releasing your new EP, and is this your first release for the imprint?
As I remember the saga of our friendship has started to develop by the IWIW era when my first EP released – called Balkon Life- many years ago, I got a message regarding that track from Rayco Santos and Alex Kentucky. They are super nice, hardworking guys and owners of Be Adult Music Records. I have had the opportunity from them to release EP (Reach the Sky) earlier on their Label.
Which other labels have you worked with, and what’s been your proudest moment to date?
Currently, I’m in contact with a few other Labels all around the world, and I had the chance to meet Will Sumsuch the owner of Colour and Pitch records in England. He released a few of my works and I can say we are good friends since 2016. My upcoming track “Follow the Path” is coming soon on Colour and Pitch Records. I am always happy to get messages and feedbacks regarding my work.
Have there been any big-name DJ’s supporting your music, and who is the DJ/producer that inspires you the most?
Yes, recently I have got support from Nick Warren. He praises one of my remixes, and that was definitely one of the happiest moment in my musician life. I would like to mention the All day I dream team who inspires me the most, they spin absolutely amazingly.
What’s next in your schedule after the Passion release hits stores on the 16th of December?
Next stop is the Be Adult Christmas album. I wrote a track for it. The title is “Aura” which is gonna be delicious.
Is there anything else you would like to tell our readers about?
Thank you for your time to read my writings. I hope we can meet soon somewhere in a nice place while I’m playing some beautiful melodies for you. Regards Tibor Dragan
