Zoltán Velkei is a freelance journalist based in Budapest. In the last 15 years he's worked for almost every music magazine, which has a column for techno or any other type of contemporary electronic music in Hungary. Zoltan doesn't have any favourites, but appreciates forward-thinking record labels and artists who can reinvent themselves from time to time. In his day-time job, Zoltán runs a publishing house and does everything to make his favourite sci-fi authors recognized in his country.
