We met for the first time about 15 years ago, but our first K.O.D. party took place in November 2016.
Kovvalsky: Music was in my life from the very beginning. My dad has very nice music taste, he introduced me to: rock, jazz and also electronic music. Then I started searching music on my own and this genre was my natural choice.
Pitti Schmitti: I think the first electronic sounds I heard were those of Italo Disco, I was an 80’s kid so this is kinda natural. First electronic music I got myself was a Prodigy cassette, then I started listening to Drum’n’Bass, later 4/4, and I landed where I am now.
Kovvalsky: David Mancuso, Miles Davis, Donato Dozzy
Pitti Schmitti: Sabrina, Bon Jovi, Vengaboys (seriously)
We definitely love both and it’s impossible to choose one option, it always depends on many factors.
Going back in time “The Loft” – location of the parties organized by David Mancuso in NYC.
A few years ago we were playing on a small festival, surrounded by nature. When the sun went down and it was time to turn on the lights, we realized not a single one of them worked. After around an hour into our set in complete darkness all lights went on and we saw just how many people were dancing, it was a special moment : )
We combine djing with being bartenders for our friends in the back of dj booth.
Unfortunately as we all know it wasn’t the best year. We had cancelled many interesting gigs. Happily we were able to organise our italo night and play one festival during the summer.
We are Pitti Schmitti & Kovvalsky, residents of Jasna 1 Club in Warsaw, Poland. We dj together as K.O.D. and run a party series called Komitet Obrony Disco (Disco Defence Committee). We collect and play various genres of electronic dance music for your dancefloor pleasures. We also host a radio show @newonce.radio
