New album ready as CD or download in the shops in April. Welcome to SOIREE DELUXE! You’ll get in if you´re fancy, free and selected. Be curious!
…happy to finalize the working period of the last almost 2 years now – and releasing the sixth TAPE FIVE album in April! swinging stuff on it, the usual suspects, some chilled, some experiments and yes, even a track in german language!
Yes! When in 2008 most people were sleeping we invented swing on a steady 4 beat with composed swinging and live played horn sections in it. My working title of that style was “Charleston House”. In 2010 the tracks, for example “Bad Boy Goodman”, “Dixie Biscuit” or “Madame Coquette” were released on our album “Tonight Josephine”. Those were the days. Later thousands of “sample DJs” discovered this genre and called it “Electroswing”…
Winter is a fine time for production work! Closed in the studio and deep down in edits… see you in spring!
“Of course the title had nothing to do with a “circus” itself as you will have imagined.
It´s about the world, the big circus – the crazy things that happen…
Of course we know “bread and games” since the days of the Romans.
But when I selected the title in late 2014 – I could not even guess what a real circus it soon would become, also here in Germany.
Hoping history is NOT repeating and there will be a way out…”
