The Hungarian language is strange like the voice of Béla Lugosi, difficult but crystal-clean like a concerto of Béla Bartók. But the Hungarian language is fluid like the lyrics of Grandmaster Flash. And Hungarians like rap! Hungarians use rap! And it's not a crap! Are you ready to rap? There are some great hiphop illusionists in this country who perfectly use the Hungarian language for rap: so we proudly present the underground hiphop baronesses of Hungary, The Ludditák!
The Hip-Hop band was founded by two sistaz, MC Móki (Marianna Fiáth) and MC Tita (Titanilla Fiáth) in 2000. The band name comes from the English movement of the 19th century against the steam-engines. The Ludditák rapidly became local heroes with massive help of the most popular underground radio, Radio Tilos. Their first demo CD was a mixture of home-made hiphop-loops and unique and funny lyrics. This work already introduces the sparkling sense of humor, the ironic world of the gals' lyrics about bike-runners, the subcultures in Budapest, the country life or how to become Britney Spears.
The duo made soundtracks for some films like Sohasevolt Glória, but the multi-award-winner animation, The District (Nyócker) gave them fame with their track of the whores. The next album Porcogó was released in 2005 (Playground Records) by two DJs-producers, Párizs and Nafta who helped them to build groovy hiphop beats under the lyrics. Porcogó is real hiphop album with real schlagers from funk to rock, from funny folk to hiphop beats, and with real special guests like the funk-soul diva Noryka, the oldschool Hip-Hop-biker legend Buppa, the Jack Black-look-like rock-journalist MC Wanted and the post-punk supergroup Hippikiller (the metronome of the Nation - Ferenc Gerdesits from Quimby, the bassplayer veteran - András Mezei, the vibrato-king guitarist Miki Csala and the rock-journalist-meets-Ted Nugent-guitarist Balázs Bihari).
Last year the Ludditák promoted their album live with the Ludditák Live Show, played many times all around Hungary from the clubs to the biggest festivals like Sziget 2006 with sold out gigs. Now the band is working on the new '007 CD. Their brand new show No Feng Shui will debute at CTM.07, with more vocals, more punk, more strange lyrics under the bombastic language of Edward Teller.
