Velavan / short:
VELAVAN is another step in [dunkelbunt]s transglobal musical agenda taken from the upcoming 3 EP release EXODUS KOMPLEX. Reggae goes to India and then meets China, featuring the Indian Singer Anuradha Genrich: fusion-confusion, spicy and deep.

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.

Der Track experimentiert mit fernöstlichen Klangfarben (chinesische Erhu und Guzheng). Am Mikrofon ist die indische Sängerin Anuradha Genrich.

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)

„Viens Avec Moi“ is [dunkelbunt]’s first collaboration with singer Lisa Cantabile and will excite us with a catchy summer tune and the right amount of „laissez-faire“. Begun on a few hot summer nights in Italy and Croatia, [dunkelbunt] and Lisa Cantabile finished the song in Vienna, joining up with the Moroccan raї singer Kadero Rai to ooze even more mediterranean vibes.

[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.

★ New Track: [dunkelbunt] GET DOWN  ★



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.
