We are very proud to announce the next Frozen Plates release! This time we have a very special producer ... it's Cadik!
Cadik is among the very first pioneers of the Hungarian electronic music scene. He started playing DJ sets in the very early ‘90s, showcasing rarely heard, but highly rewarding instrumental and abstract hip-hop records.
In ‘93-’94 he found himself drawn to, and then a part of, the emerging jungle scene, and the drum n bass sound that followed, but his main love was always, until this day, hip-hop.
Cadik has also made award-winning movie soundtracks, and it’s no secret that he was part of an extremely popular Hungarian pop music band called Anima Sound System.
Thus, his musical journey en route to dubstep has been nothing short of adventurous. His first brush with dubstep was in the very early years of the genre, bearing witness to the seed of the sound that we call dubstep today.
Along the way he has crafted tons of his own 140 bpm / dubstep tunes, most of which are kept in locked away in a veritable vault, never having been released. Those in attendance over the years have no doubt heard some of these during his live DJ sets.
To summarize a brilliant, 30-year journey through music in just a few sentences doesn’t do justice to the creativity and artistry of this living legend.
Cadik – "Pasar EP" is a very special release for all of us here at Frozen Plates. For this occasion, we commissioned a full-sleeve artwork.
Our brothers in bass at Jah-Tek kindly premiered one of the tracks on our forthcoming FZP19 release. It showcases Cadik's canny knack for blending traditional Southeast Asian instruments within intricate and chaotic drum patterns. Through it all, Cadik keeps it masterfully minimalist, resulting in one of 2022's most rewarding listens!
