Ant on Wax
Adam aka Ant on Wax was born in Munich in 1976 to Hungarian immigrants. His relatives also include an opera singer and another music producer.
In Munich, together with singer „Lavinia Jones”, he produced an album in collaboration with musicians and producers across the Internet. The album provided the soundtrack for the movie „Das Musikill”.
After that Adam decided to go back to his Hungarian roots and moved to Budapest. He has been living here since 2006.
In existence now is the „Budabeat Studio”. Here a lot of new recordings are being made with vocalists, musicians, and whole bands. The style of music is always chosen by the artists that are working with Adam. He just influences the music with his personal touch, much like a cook would spice up a soup. New creative artists are constantly arising in Adam’s life.
Since 2007 constantly music is used for media. Adam organized himself a world wide network in agencies and communities. He started earning on licensing and royalties from radio playback.
The following year, 2008, there were three projects that were especially interesting: The collaboration with the 10 member band „Orkestra Bohemika”, the genre could be called modern gypsy pop music. Furthermore there was work done on an electronic-oriental music cocktail with the singer „Gina Rubik”, who has a strong Asian influence. Guitar player, „Noar”, who studied music and singing in London, also collaborated with Adam on some excellent projects.
Since end of 2009 Budabeat Studio has opened its doors to the public.
During 2010 two directors ran into Adam, both in the need of music for their motion picture. Together with a clarinet and guitar player from Luxembourg, Adam was composing the soundtrack of the french TV comedy „Pigeons Voyageur”. For the other movie project Adam was working together with, a professional violin player, singer and synthesizer artist and various other musicians.
Between 2011 and 2016 Adam was in a creative break with looking into different topics than music.
Starting 2017 Adam is collaborating with the Kenyan singer Moraa for peaceful and pleasing songs written by her in Swahili language. They both compose together.
