Forteba (Krisztián Dobrocsi) and Marcel aka Carmel (Marcell Dudas), artists on the Plastic City and Mole Listening Pearls labels, have opted for a “musical fusion” to express what has happened to and around them in recent years . The current corona pandemic and the music industry, which has always been constantly changing, has stimulated you to reinvent yourself, which then developed in new creativity and in the foundation of a new project, which is now the exciting album “Miami Wives” released on the label Mole Listening Pearls.
The two artists describe the project “The Tubbs” as “a game”, a midlife moment experiment to reflect on their decades of work. The album “Miami Wives” is the fruit of this reflection on their separate and shared past.
The first two singles already released called “Give a Little, Take a Little” and “Too Match, Too Late” will be followed today by the album “Miami Wives“, which is available from all download and streaming portals.
What do the son of a working class family from the suburbs of the capital and the son of a police officer who grows up in a traditional small town have in common? At first you would say: nothing. Somehow the children who were born in the seventies to the early eighties had the same experience, because they grew up with cassette decks, the boom in VHS and the magical world of American television series, which were previously almost unknown in the Eastern Bloc.
An overwhelming moment for young Forteba was when he first heard Vangelis’s “L’Enfant” on a news program called “The Week“. It was a similar story for Marcel when he first heard the evergreen “The Model” by Kraftwerk in a television commercial. Music has always been a part of their lives and in their early twenties they started immersing themselves in the world of electronic music.
“In a world where nothing is perfect, everything will turn out fine in the end, just like the old TV series.”
