PRESSETEXT DE

Innig und im Helldunkel eines Film-Noir der 40er Jahre, spielt Lisa Cantabiles Song “Fame” mit einem klassischen Motiv. Die Sängerin sucht in dieser [dunkelbunt]-Produktion sehr bewusst die Nähe zum Genre, zum Drama und zum großen cinematischen Klangformat: Reiche Geigen und großer Hallraum, wohltemperiert in jazzigen Trip-Hop Beats.

Nach der Hit-Single Viens avec moi (2019) besticht diese zweite Kooperation von Lisa Cantabile und Ulf [dunkelbunt] Lindemann durch das elegante Spiel mit Moods und Attitüden.

Lisa Cantabile – Die geborene Wienerin wuchs in Rwanda und Mozambique auf und studierte am Wiener Gustav Mahler Konservatorium für Musik und darstellende Kunst Gesang. Sie lebt als Jazz-Singer-Songwriterin und Yoga-Instruktorin in Wien.

Ulf [dunkelbunt] Lindemann ist Producer, DJ und Bandleader. Geboren 1979 in Hamburg, lebt seit 2001 in Wien. Elf Alben, mehr als 1.500 Live-Auftritte weltweit, mehr als 100 Millionen Audio-Streams. – Auf den internationaler Durchbruch mit der Balkan-Hip Hop Produktion The Chocolate Butterfly ft. RAF Camora (2006) folgt Cinnamon Girl (2007) als Electro Swing-Hit und -Klassiker; Mountain Jumper (2015) wurde ORF-“Album des Jahres” 2015. [dunkelbunt] + Band ist ein weltweit gebuchter Live-Act in den Bereichen “World”, “Transglobal”, “Dub”, “Balkan Beats”, “Electro Swing”. – Im Dezember 2019 ist das Album The Vienna Tapes – limited edition erschienen.

RELEASE TEXT ENGLISH

Colored in the chiaroscuro of a film noir of the 40s, Lisa Cantabile’s intimate song “Fame” plays with a classic motif. In this [dunkelbunt] production, the singer deliberately seeks proximity to the genre, the drama and the large cinematic sound format: rich violins and a large reverberation room, well-tempered in jazzy trip-hop down-tempo beats.

After the hit single Viens avec moi (2019), this second cooperation of Lisa Cantabile and Ulf [dunkelbunt] Lindemann captivates with its elegant treatment of moods and attitudes.

Lisa Cantabile was born in Vienna, grew up in Rwanda / Mozambique and studied singing at the Vienna Gustav Mahler Conservatory of Music and Performing Arts. She lives as a jazz singer-songwriter and yoga instructor in Vienna.

[dunkelbunt] aka Ulf Lindemann is a producer, DJ and bandleader. Born 1979 in Hamburg and living in Vienna since 2001. Eleven album-releases, 1.500+ live acts worldwide, 100 Million+ audio streams.

– RELEASE TEXT / EN – 

The EP “Vienna Tapes” brings together eight selected [dunkelbunt] tracks and their instrumental versions from the years 2015-2019. It is the album of my mental and musical awakening in the realms of the Near – and increasingly – Far East: The journey takes off from the Balkans (Wish) to the Maghreb (Viens Avec Moi, L’Amour fidèle) and Kenya (Mia Kwa Mia) to the Arab Middle East (Space Walker) and then ultimately to India (Le Ta Jaoji, Velavan).

I am drawn ever more into the vortex of these musical worlds, and with the album release of “Vienna Tapes” I cast the first stone into a raging stream, which I am calling the “Exodus Complex”.

Alix Oder Nix’s “Weit Weg” (Far Away) is the slogan and the motif of my new production, which got a kick-start with “Wish” during the refugee crisis of 2015/16. Apart from a conducive partnership with the American West Coast musician Will Magid (Balkan Bump), the “Vienna Tapes” draw substantially from the pool of international and globally active musicians in Vienna: Alix Oder Nix, the Berlin MC, a lyrical and performative matador; South Indian singer Anuradha Genrich and jazz singer / songwriters Lisa Cantabile and Mela Marie Spaemann; the rapper Cloud Tissa from Kenya and the Moroccan Raï singer Kadero Rai; finally the Rajasthan-born brothers Haider and Pintoo Khan as brilliant singers and percussionists … –

[dunkelbunt] aka Ulf Lindemann is a producer, DJ and bandleader. Born 1979 in Hamburg and living in Vienna since 2001. He has a degree in Piano and Keyboard Instruments at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna. His international breakthrough came with the Balkan-Hip-Hop single „The Chocolate Butterfly“ ft. Raf Camora (2006) and the Electro Swing follow up hit „Cinnamon Girl“ (2007). The album „Mountain Jumper“ (2015) was awarded the ORF „Album of the Year 2015“. [dunkelbunt] + Band is a internationally successful live act.

– RELEASE TEXT / DE –

Die EP “Vienna Tapes” versammelt acht ausgewählte [dunkelbunt]-Tracks und deren Instrumental-Versionen aus den Jahren 2015-2019. Es ist das Album meines mentalen und musikalischen Aufbruchs in den nahen und den zunehmend fernen Oste: Die Reise geht dabei vom Balkan (Wish) über den Maghreb (Viens Avec Moi, L’Amour fidèle) und Kenia (Mia Kwa Mia) in den arabischen Nahen Osten (Space Walker) und dann nach Indien (Le Ta Jaoji, Velavan). –

Es zieht mich immer stärker in den Wirbel dieser Musikwelten und Welt-Musiken hinein und ich werfe mit der Album-Release von “Vienna Tapes” den ersten Stein in einen rasanten Fluss, den ich insgesamt als “Exodus Complex” bezeichne.

Alix Oder Nix’ “Weit Weg” benennt das Motto und Motiv meines neuen Produzierens, das während der Flüchtlingskrise 2015/16 mit “Wish” begann. Abgesehen von den fruchtbaren Kooperation mit dem amerikanischen Westcoast-Musiker Will Magid (Balkan Bump), schöpfen die “Vienna Tapes” wesentlich aus dem Pool internationaler und weltweit tätiger MusikerInnen in Wien: Alix Oder Nix, der Berliner MC als textlicher und performativer Prachtkerl; die südindische Sängerin Anuradha Genrich sowie die Jazz-Singer-Songwriterinnen Lisa Cantabile und Mela Marie Spaemann; der Rapper Cloud Tissa aus Kenia und der marokkanische Raï -Sänger Kadero Rai; schließlich die aus Rajasthan stammenden Brüder Haider und Pintoo Khan als fulminante Sänger und Percussionisten …  –

RELEASE TEXT / EN
Hiroshima Mon Amour

Composed as a part of the project “Transglobal Exodus Complex” – Chapter ASIA FILES, this new track plays with various motives of the “Far East” fantasy and resumes [dunkelbunt]s earlier sampling and turntablism experiments.

The reference to the feature film of the same name and to the topic of atomic bombing was at first rather associative: The theme of yearning for a different, “Oriental” world is reflected in the bitter-sweet violins (erhu), in the percussive plucked strings and in the song line recorded by the singer Lisa Cantabile: “Ne me quitte pas, mon Amour”.

Due to the deliberately associative production process and in the context of current DJ mixes such as “Bass of Asia” and “Bass of India”, the track “Hiroshima Mon Amour” is a further step within [dunkelbunt]s exploration of the topics “Asia” and “Far East”. It includes dark aspects such as civilization collapse and climate change into the musical imagination. Daniel Krammer’s artwork, which was carried out in the [dunkelbunt]-studio, integrates these apocalyptic vibes, but remains – just like the leisurely shuffling track – confident and serene.

RELEASE TEXT / DE
Hiroshima Mon Amour

Der im Rahmen der Arbeit am “Transglobal Exodus Complex” – Chapter ASIA FILES – entstandene Track spielt mit verschiedenen Motiven der Fernost-Sehnsucht und stellt eine Wiederaufnahme von [dunkelbunt]s früheren Sampling- und Turntablism-Experimenten dar.

Der Bezug zum gleichnamigen Spielfilm und zum Thema des Atombombenabwurfs war zunächst eher assoziativ: Das Thema der Sehnsucht nach einer anderen, fernöstlichen Welt spiegelt sich in den süß-schwermütigen Geigen (Erhu), in den perkussiv gezupften Strings sowie in der von der Sängerin Lisa Cantabile eingespielten Liedzeile “Ne me quitte pas, mon Amour”.

Gerade durch den bewusst assoziativen Produktionsprozess und im Kontext von aktuellen DJ-Mixes wie “Bass of Asia” und “Bass of India” stellt “Hiroshima Mon Amour” allerdings auch eine Weiterführung und Brechung von [dunkelbunt]s Auseinandersetzung mit “Asien” dar: Mit seinen Anspielungen auf den Film bezieht “Hiroshima Mon Amour” auch Schattenseiten wie Zivilisations-Kollaps, Klimawandel und Krisen in den Schwellenländern in die musikalische Phantasie mit ein. Daniel Krammers – ebenfalls im [dunkelbunt]-Studio entstandene – Titelgrafik integriert diese apokalyptischen Vibes, bleibt dabei jedoch – genau wie der gemächlich shuffelnde Track – zuversichtlich und heiter.

Kurztext Velavan:
VELAVAN ist der nächste Schritt in [dunkelbunt]s transglobaler Agenda des aktuellen EXODUS KOMPLEX. Reggae im Stil von Indien bis China – mit der indischen Sängerin Anuradha Genrich am Mikrofon: Fusion & Konfusion, prickelnd entspannt.

Reggae – straight out of Asia. Velavan is the next stage of [dunkelbunt]s transglobal muscial agenda, with his current project “EXODUS KOMPLEX” (3 EP/CD 2019).

The track experiments with Far Eastern soundscapes, reggae beats played on Chinese instruments, the erhu and guzheng, with vocals coming from the Indian singer Anuradha Genrich.

Ever since [dunkelbunt]s headline concert at the BEANTOWN BACKYARD FESTIVAL in Bangalore (October 2018) a fascination with India developed that began on the tour itself and continued to inspire on the journey home, with the original concepts for the songs “Velavan” and “Ufos over Bengaluru” (December 2018)

With her beguiling voice, Anuradha Genrich tells of the poetic deity VELAVAN, the patron of the Tamil language. She studied classical Indian (carnatic) music in Madras and in recent years has collaborated with numerous international musicians (Desert Dwellers, Zion Train, Laya Project). Currently she resides in Vienna.

Seit dem Auftritt von [dunkelbunt] als Headliner beim BEANTOWN BACKYARD FESTIVAL in Bangalore (Oktober 2018) glüht die Faszination Indiens nach. Bereits auf der Tour und im Flugzeug nach Europa entstanden die Layouts zu den Songs “Velavan” und “Ufos over Bengaluru” (Dezember 2018)

Mit betörender Stimme erzählt Anuradha Genrich von der poetischen Gottheit VELAVAN, dem Patron der tamilischen Sprache. Die Sängerin hat in Madras klassische indische Musik studiert und in den letzten Jahren mit zahlreichen internationalen Musikern (Desert Dwellers, Zion Train, Laya Project) kollaboriert.

[dunkelbunt] is coming up with a brand new remix for Tel Aviv based artist LOCO HOT ft the voices of the Yemenite sister trio A-WA! This song is released on Tamir Muskat´s (BALKAN BEAT BOX) label APE RECORDS, which reflects the brimming sound and creativity of its city perfectly. [dunkelbunt] met A-WA during one of his Israel tours back in 2014. Enchanted by their voices, he knew it was only a matter of time to collaborate with them. In 2016 he came across their new sound and video I AM A TRIBE and immediately got hooked and inspired to do his very own version by turning it to an oriental trap tune, which perfectly reflects the global sound of 2018.

While on tour in Hawaii I rented a bike and rode around the island of Maui.
My backpack full with two avacados, a few dates, a pocketknife and my bike repair kit. A strong wind on my back and off I went along the unforgettable Hana Highway, an experience etched into my memory. Every 10 minutes I was confronted with different climates, light, and vegetation. Roads strewn with passionfruit turning the surface into a skating rink filled with rainbows, fresh water and salt water. Sleeping under the stars and waking up with a dose of adrenalin instead of my usual caffeine because I had to climb up a tree to get to my coconut milk.
Get Down is my musical interpretation of that trip.

New Track: [dunkelbunt] ft. Alix: “Egal”

iTunes | bandcamp | Amazon | free download

ulf_alex-3490-1

The single “EGAL” is the precursor to the new [dunkelbunt] album “Mountain Jumper” which will be released in spring 2015 on [dunkelbunt records].
With this release [dunkelbunt] & Alix demonstrate their boundless ingenuity, when it comes to making transcontinental music: “EGAL” mixes Hip Hop with Bluegrass, German rap meets New Orleans Marching Brass and the sounds of the Mississippi Delta sail on the Aegean Sea.

On the mic is Alexander Leuschner aka Alix. Born in 1988 and a native of Berlin’s Neukölln suburb, he’s been rapping using various vocal styles from a young age. Rhythmically refined he he bounces on the verses, thoughtfully and humorously talking about life and his visions. Together with [dunkelbunt] he shares his adopted home of Vienna and a passion for merging different musical styles.

Ulf Lindemann aka [dunkelbunt] was born in Hamburg in 1979. At the beginning of the millennium in his Vienna studio, he began to merge electronic music with Balkan, Gypsy and Swing sounds and along with his contemporaries like Waldeck, Parov Stelar and Shantel who helped popularize the new music genres, „Electro Swing“ and „Balkan Beats“.

RELEASE PARTY: 

29. January 2015 / GASOMETER / Vienna (Austria)

MOUNTAIN JUMPER

[dunkelbunt] paints his new album “Mountain Jumper” as a sound collage of the American continent when it was first founded. He mixes the diverse sounds of various local cultures with electro and modern club sounds, Bluegrass In Dub, Hilly Billy Breaks, Fiddle´n´Bass, which means not for the first time [dunkelbunt] has to come up with fresh names for new genres. Over the last decade [dunkelbunt] has toured the world as one of the pioneers of Electro and Balkan Beatz, including seven tours through North America and his new album is a reflection of these travels. “Electronic music is the foundation which the sounds of the world sit upon.”

Cat. No.: DBR 01
Labelcode: LC 01226
Format: Digital
File under: Dancehall, Hip Hop, Rap, Electro Swing, World

“There’s one thing that we will never do together, and that’s make music!“ – „I can still hear myself saying that to Alix. That was about a year ago when we met up for the first time at the Wiener Augarten”, explains Mr. [dunkelbunt] telling the story of how his latest collaboration with the singer ALIX was born.

Last summer, Alexander Leuschner, born in Berlin, applied to [dunkelbunt] for an internship and although it had been made clear in the job description that the position did not incorporate making music but focused on the ins and outs of how a label operates he still sent in one of his songs along with a wonderfully brash application letter.

“When I listened to it I immediately felt like I’d met my musical soul mate and that was the reason I had to ring him to arrange that meeting at Augarten. Then after a few days of checking each other out we decided to make music together.” „Es ist egal, wo Du herkommst und auch egal wohin Du gehst, solang’ Du nur dem Weg Deines Herzens folgst und dafür gerade stehst….“ (“It doesn’t matter where you come from or where you’re going as long as you follow your heart and stand with pride…”) that was the first of his contributions that burrowed it’s way into my head, a chorus that Alix wrote over the [dunkelbunt] Riddim Schlawiener, more or less as an acid test. A few weeks later he was standing with us on stage at the National Tennis Center Bratislava and now I couldn’t imagine [dunkelbunt] & Secret Swing Society without him.”

The first fruits of this collaboration will be released this summer with Augen zu und durch and Süßwasser Salzwasser the lyrics as the titles suggest are in German, “We inspire each other equally. My music is a homage to him and his lyrics are a homage to me which is both beautiful and liberating.” says Mr [dunkelbunt]. “With that foundation we decided to make an album together and the first release is the track Boomeræng, incorporating rap, vocals and swinging hip hop beats, using oriental and western instrumentation with a urban and nostalgic flair.” The finishing touch comes in suaheli from the kenian singer Cloud Tissa, who collaborates with [dunkelbunt] for years: Kebab Connection, Balkan Qoulou, Give You Action – East Africa meets the Middle East. The Boomeræng Club Version was remixed by the austrian „Electro Brass Collective“ Erwin & Edwin.

Ulf Lindemann aka [dunkelbunt] was born in Hamburg in 1979 and came to Austria at the beginning of the millennium to study and make music. In 2002 in his Vienna studio he began to merge electronic music with Balkan, Gypsy and Swing sounds and along with his contemporaries like Waldeck, Parov Stelar and Shantel who helped popularize the new music genres Electro Swing and Balkan Beats.

Together with every EP or LP released, [dunkelbunt] creates a special spice blend which is included with the CD or album and at concerts the air is filled with his special fragrances. With a cinnamon wand or with aromatic oil massaging the senses of his audience they are taken on a fantastic trip to the orient or through tropical forests and fields of flowers or to his second home in the Spanish Orange blossom valleys.

New Single: “Schlawiener” – Out on April, 23!

-> CD/VINYL LIMITED EDITION

Please find the limited Schlawiener-Edition in our SHOP:
A signed CD or white vinyl, Schlawienermelange spice blend, sticker and poster!
The release show will be on the same day at FLEX in Vienna with [dunkelbunt] & the Secret Swing Society. facebook-EVENT

“Schlawiener” is a cheeky play on words in German, translating roughly as a “smooth operator/dodger living in Vienna”. Someone you almost automatically turn into when moving from a hanseatic city (Hamburg in this case) to the foothills of the Balkans (and stay there for more than a decade).

On this fresh-from-the-oven release, Mr. Dunkelbunt takes the mic himself, rapping about Vienna the way he sees it… and his life as a traveller & jetlag junkie. As far as the music goes, the artist calls it “HipHop-rattle-electro-swing mixed in with funky-sirtaki-dubstep on a eastern tip“. Just in case you wondered.

Ulf Lindemann aka [dunkelbunt] has been labelled “a wizzard of tone colours“ and “specialist for exquisite music- & spice blends“. Only just a few years ago, his highly acclaimed longplayer “Morgenlandfahrt“ got him global prestige as a pioneer producer of all things electro swing/Balkan beats. Since 2011, [dunkelbunt] also tours the planet as a brilliant live act, joined by the Secret Swing Society for that occasion.

Lindemann lives & works in the lovely city of Vienna as a freelance artist since 2001… which of course makes him a true “Schlawiener“!

“Wir Schlawiener sind Trommelfelldoktoren,
spezialisiert aufs Wohl von Seele, Geist und Ohren.
Doktor dunkelbunt verschreibt Ohrgasmen im Vierviertel-Takt,
macht schon mal die Ohren nackt…” (Schlawiener)
