Fatmagic

EDM Live Act

 

Fatmagic is an Austrian-American electronic music duo. The band name is an acronym and stands for Freakin’ Awesome Tracks Made After Going Insanely Crazy. Radina Tara Vel and Madmax Fiddler create their unique sound with eclectic vocals, electric violin and electric cello mixed with electronic beats.

The musical genre is as international as the band members and is often described as a well-balanced blend of sophisticated EDM, Electro Swing, and House, paired with folky hooks, and mind-bending rock licks.
