The Devil's Trade (Doom Folk):
Listen to the call of the Iron Peak. It is calling for you to find your true self in a world you want to be isolated from. It is calling for you to make peace with yourself, with the inevitable end. It is calling for Hungarian singer-songwriter Dávid Makó, who redefined himself as The Devil’s Trade a few years ago, embarking on a long journey with his deeply personal and dark, sometimes doom infused folk songs.
Be it the folk of the Appalachians, the tales of Hungarian and Transylvanian traditionals, The Devil’s Trade fuses his past of metal and his roots laying deep in the folk songs of his immediate surroundings.Very much like how the Iron Peak, a mountaintop both metaphorical and literal is calling for Makó, he is calling for you to share his rituals of loves and hopes lost and found along the pilgrimage of his. It is after all, the journey itself that matters the most, and how you adapt. From basements in his hometown of Budapest, to all corners of Europe, stages small and big, The Devil’s Trade has been relentlessly walking on his path finding his voice and calling, and that is to let listeners to glimpse into himself through his heart wrenching songs.

Platon Karataev (Indie/Folk/Psych):
Platon Karataev, named after a Leo Tolstoy character, was formed in 2016. The Budapest-based band released Orange Nights EP in 2016. Their first single, ‘Elevator’ received huge attention, it was ranked no. 4 on Spotify’s German viral top50 playlist and it was among the tracks in the UK viral playlist, too.
In 2017 their debut LP, For Her was released in three parts. The album not only received positive feedback from local critics but also brought along new international followers, which resulted in Platon Karataev becoming one of the most-streamed Hungarian artists. Since 2017, For Her was streamed more than 5 million times on Spotify, mostly from the USA, the UK, and Germany. The band was selected as an INES#talent 2019. Within this programme, out of 3000 applicants, 100 emerging
bands were chosen to perform at various European showcase festivals. 
With catharsis as a key element of the album,
this record moved away from For Her’s acoustic sound to broader, heavier instrumentation.
