About

A self-made third culture kid, Rawfare is known for forging highly customized weapons for his musical battles. Born Hungarian in Bratislava, he spent most of his career near Chicago and Amsterdam, only to move on to his latest stop, Berlin. Although already having achieved a string of acclaimed releases during the electro fever at the end of the past decade, his stylistic boundaries are hard to pin down, varying the same way as his chameleonic cultural background and influences.

One common thread through the music is an affinity for highly polished noise and vibrant sparkles of distortion, interspersed with respectful nods towards the disruptive, thumping vibes of the early warehouse rave era and the contrarian attitudes of techno and punk. His melodies are playful and dangerous, reminiscent of an overzealous kid conquering a child safety lock in a moment that makes bored adults panic. Add that to the mountains of bass and drums fighting for the limelight and you have a singular blend that's difficult to keep quiet.
