WHO AM I?
Outrun warrior from Hungary. Megahit is a retrowave / synthwave / outrun music project from Budapest, Hungary, which started its magnificent adventure in July 2015. Delivering 1980s inspired electronic beats with a neon-glowing touch of retrofuture atmosphere.
Analog feelings in a digital world. My sound is aimed to represent a glimpse of classic analog 80s synthesizer atmospheres, put in a modern 21st century environment. My music can be divided into light and dark sides: the former representing the joyful, “palm trees and sunshine” kind of 80s dance vibes, while the latter is a dystopian, post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk[ish] world with an overall negative touch.
Balance between hardware and software. I’m not the typical “hardware is better” kinda guy. I use both HW and SW when creating music. I use hardware synths to help myself present my music on stage. They are hardly used in the recording process itself, so they really give the liveacts a special touch. At the moment my gear consits of the following:
- Korg R3
- Roland Boutique JU-06
- Roland Boutique JX-03
- Roland Aira TB-3
- Alesis Recital Pro digital piano
- Arturia Microbrute
- Arturia Beatstep & Keystep (for sequencing)
Megahit goes around the globe. Well, almost. Apart from a gig in February, all my live performances were in foreign countries this year. Crazy! After visiting the United States and Poland in spring, I already have a confirmed booking in Russia for September, and hopefully, more to come! There is also a live show taking place in Budapest by Neonhullam in August.
I am very thankful for your bookings and all the positive responses after each of my live shows. It means a lot to me, and definitely makes me want to continue presenting you my music on a higher level. I’m already planning some upgrades to my live shows, and if everything goes according to plan, you can have an even better “Megahit experience” in the second half of 2018! Stay tuned!
THE NEW ALBUM
It’s already in production. I’m not gonna disclose any details, but I already started working on the new Megahit album, which is going to be another cyberpunk[ish], dark synthwave trip, with a setting aimed at retrofuturistic action films.
The release date is not set yet, but I’ll try to get everything ready by somewhere in mid-autumn. Of course, there will be physical releases again, and maybe merchandise too.

Follow me on Instagram. Apart from my graphic works I collect various synthwave-related imagery. 3D renders, digital paintings, concept art, artistic photographs – basically anything that has an 80s retrofuturistic touch to it. You can also track my production flow and liveacts through my stories.
Follow me on YouTube. Here you can find a few videoclips I made for my tracks. These are the the “so-called” official music videos of my tunes. I regularly feature these in my liveact visuals, along with other 80s / synthwave / cyberpunk related footage and films. Enjoy!
You wanna dance? Would you like me to play at your synthwave / retrowave related event? Or would you like to use my tracks for something? Or just have a few words to say in general? Drop me a few lines here and tell me what you want. I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
