Máté Janky is a Budapest-based musician and visual artist. He has been involved in various projects since his first release in 2011 and his musical language has become eclectic. Alley Catss draws inspiration from a wide range of sources and merges ambient and abstract sonic ideas with fragments of dance music, such as techno, jungle and juke, and tries to contextualize the outcome within the worlds and phenomena of virtuality and digital spaces. Improvisation, rawness and randomness play a great role, in his live sets, always creating something new for each performance. Along with a number of self-released digital mixtapes, his last LP ℶ was published in 2016 on Belgian netlabel Midlife, followed by a split with Parisian artist Bintahaha on Máté’s own label – a tape label called Daddypower Records, with a focus on experimental internet music and connections between seemingly distant musical worlds & sonic explorations.
