Current Location: Budapest, Hungary
Position in Music: DJ and Producer
Peter Safranyos aka The Great Galeri is a rising Hungarian soulful / funky house DJ and producer. His musical journey began in the late 90’s when he came across the unique sound of Frankie Knuckles, Pete Heller, Full Intention and Olav Basoski to name a few. In 1998, Pete Heller’s massive club hit ’Big Love’ was the track that introduced him to house music.
Needless to say, he instantly fell in love with the sound, which urged him to start discovering the house music scene and its roots. He had to dig deep, as far as the 1970s / 80s to discover the golden era of funk and disco, which ultimately led him to the roots of house music. The endless amount of incredible tracks from that time gave him a fresh perspective about emotional music.
Although, growing up as a young boy he was influenced by a number of different genres of electronic music, soulful and funky house music have had the biggest impact in forming his musical taste.
He’s got stuck with uplifting soulful and funky house music through the years, which he plays regularly in his monthly radioshow called ’Budapest Soulful & Funky Vocal House Sessions’ as well as at gigs. Sun-kissed beats, glamorous bar grooves, captivating vocals and luscious melodies are some of the key elements that represent his sound. His mixes take you on a blissful journey from timeless soulful house grooves to pulsating funky house rhythms, spreading a tempting vibe you can’t resist to dance to.
