Freakin’ Disco cooperated with Grammy winner producer

Freakin’ Disco is back with a song, produced by Grammy Award winner Steve Dub, and the
accompanying music video directed by award-winning director Szabolcs Hajdu. Face Yourself is the
first single from their upcoming third album, TOTEM, which is to be released next spring.
Since their last EP in 2020, fans have only got movie soundtracks from the band, but it was worth the
wait. Not only do we get the music video and radio edit version of Face Yourself, but the EP also
features the original song and a remix by Czech producer HRTL, a top performer on modular
We submitted a demo of this song to the SongLab initiative of the Hungarian Music Export Office, in
which four world famous producers selected 2 bands each for collab. Steve Dub chose our song.
That’s how we started working with him. Before the joint studio session, he first made a couple of
suggestions, which helped us to get a more live orchestration. Then, when we had a much more
cohesive version, we sent it to him. We encouraged him to feel free and get creative with it. He worked
on it for quite a long time, he had time to experiment. In the end, we polished it together until the music
reached its final state. – Gábor Keresztes explains how the band’s collaboration with Steve Dubb
Steve Dub may not be a household name, but when you mention he has worked together with the
likes of The Chemical Brothers, Moby, The Prodigy, UNKLE or his five Grammy Awards, it’s clear what
a milestone it is for a Hungarian band to work with such a highly acclaimed professional.Besides Steve
Dub, award-winning Hungarian film director Szabolcs Hajdu also collaborated with the band, shooting
and directing the music video for the song.
Drummer Ágoston Szabó Sipos told us about the origins of the cooperation: «We first met Szabolcs
when working together on a theatre performance. Then we did the music for his film Treasure City
(Békeidő) and it occurred to him that he could make a video for us. And finally the time came. The
idea, the concept came from him and we trusted in his creativity and helped him where we could. We
are very grateful to him and to the many people who worked on this material.»
«I really like their music, I’ve always been attracted to this kind of experimentation, which is on the
borderline of being for a larger audience but keeping its experimental edge. I tried to find that in the
video as well.» – adds the Karlovy Vary Film Festival award-wining director who also talked about the
concept of the video.
