Decoded Residents Radio with November Mix of the Month Winner – Avrud

It has been another month of high quality mix submissions. Our winner this month has been on our radar for a while now. His mixes are always musical, entertaining and challenging in parts, so with great pleasure, we all agree November’s winner is Gergo Szecsko aka Avrud.

“Music and mixing gives me psychological freedom. As an old man said it once: “Music is the only thing that never disappoints” and it really doesn’t. When I heard DJs spinning on the radio back in 1995 I decided that I’m going to be one of them. Since then I created countless mixes and tracks, played at a few parties as well. I’m not a complete stranger to the piano and guitar and I happily have a go on any kind of instrument I can put my hands on. When DJing, I mainly focus on drum and bass and house vibes, when listening to music I put on pretty much everything apart from trash and death metal, dubstep and mainstream.

I have always wanted to become an underground DJ. Biggest influences were the HEAVEN parties in Budapest, on the last Thursday of every month, Sasha and the Music Movement, Digweed’s Los Angeles double, GU as a whole idea, Anthony Pappa’s Moments, Matrix, Ed Rush, Optical and fellow DJs. The next step for me is to play live in clubs, festivals or in house parties. I want to make people feel connected to music and each to other. I aim to deliver a ‘dynamic entertainment’ which makes one think and act positively, bring back good memories and creates new ones while listening to it” – Avrud.

A full feature interview with Gergo will be available in Decoded Magazine over the next few days.
