ELECTRO DELUXE

Una produzione Enzo Productions

ONLY FOR ITALY

booking in collaborazione con EMMECI srl

www.emmeci.biz

 

Per il loro sesto album, Electro Deluxe si avventura in un territorio sconosciuto, a metà tra il groove organico e le emozioni digitali.

Giocando con i confini stilistici, il nuovo album «APOLLO» ci porta verso grandi spazi, verso un nuovo universo musicale.

Come se il groove degli anni '70 incontrasse il pop elettrico francese di oggi. Il suono unico del gruppo è arricchito dalla ricchezza delle tastiere leggendarie come Juno e il Moog così preziose per Eurythmics e Syevie Wonder, il mitico box ritmico Linndrum dagli inizi di Prince incontra il talk-box di Roger Troutman, il vocoder dei Daft Punk dialoga con il Fender Rhodes di Herbie Hancok.

Dopo 20 anni di esistenza e concerti in tutto il mondo, Electro Deluxe ha voluto esplorare nuovi territori musicali gettando ponti tra la produzione musicale di ieri e i suoni di oggi.

CHRIS MINH DOKY & NEW NORDIC JAZZ

In cooperation with Emmeci srl

www.emmeci.biz

 

Line up:

CHRIS MINH DOKY - bass
PETER ROSENDAL - piano
JONAS JOHANSEN - drums

 

Doky’s first performed as a young musician in Denmark, but – still in his teens - moved to New York where famed jazz guitarist Mike Stern heard what he could do and wanted that sound in his band. The word spread quickly. Along with Stern, Doky has stood beside names such as Brecker, Scofield, Mendoza, Sakamoto, Sanborn, Gurtu, Camilo and many, many more, each with a different style and approach to a

particular facet of jazz. Doky remains a strong player on the international jazz stage, but years ago his unique solo performances captured the ears and hearts of the pop world. He bolstered his career and earned a rock star aura by appearing in arenas with stars of the pop world. In what might seem a paradox, Doky also captured ears and hearts in the classical universe and has performed in opera houses, with symphony orchestras, ballet companies and opera singers.

Work on the classical side is expressed in the classical tradition seasoned with improvisation; call it, with the spirit of jazz. His voice in the idiom has been compared to the role of a solo cellist, but with the fullbody sound of the acoustic bass as the soloist that broadens the dimensions of an ensemble.

The classical vein is one of the three main outlets for Doky’s creativity. In his New Nordic Jazz project, he gently explores the enigma of a compelling Scandinavian storytelling tradition. Concurrent with that, he fronts The Electric Nomads in what appears to be a 180-degree contrast, as the The Electric Nomads give us their rendering of unbridled, funky jazz with a rock edge. Common for all three is how Doky expresses himself with the bass as the solo instrument with a direct link

to the Danish bass tradition. By bringing his heart and soul into each new challenge, Doky has emerged as the bass soloist of note. And someone did take note: Queen Margrethe II of Denmark knighted Doky in 2010 for his contributions to

the arts, making him a distinguished member of the Royal Order of the Dannebrog. The secret – along with hard work – is his passion for making an emotional and physical experience of the melody he plays. Doky embraces the traditional acoustic bass, cradles the electric and coaxes novel sound from the electric upright he helped Yamaha develop. The allure of Chris Minh Doky is not simply the sound, but the stories he tells us through melody.

FRANKIE CHAVEZ

In cooperation with MUSICASTRADA

 

Line up: 

Frankie Chavez - vocals, electric & acoustic guitar, weissenborn, portuguese guitar 

Joao Correia - drums

 

Frankie Chavez’s music, surfer and rocker from Lisbon (Portugal),  is a mix of different types of sounds, reflecting all the musical influences he encountered while traveling the world. The result is a kind of Rock/Blues/Folk, with atmospheres ranging from clean to rough or psychedelic. Though it’s easy to recognize different musical influences it’s hard to define his music in a single word.
But we can say for sure that it sounds like rock, folk, blues, and surf with a Portuguese soul
It’s ROCK because his music reflects the real spirit of this genre; essential, powerful, universal…
It’s BLUES because Frankie learned from the greatest American blues masters, creating his own personal interpretation mixed with another blues, the Portuguese Fado. Echoes of this music are inside his songs with his innovative approach to the Portuguese guitar
It’s FOLK because in his poignant ballads you can find sun, sea sunsets, travels along the coast and long days surfing waves.
It’s SURF because his music is sunny, strong and determined, like the sea and the huge Portuguese waves

FRANKIE CHAVEZ is an artist with whom everyone is in agreement, everybody speaks well about him, even the reviewers. He fascinates the audience during his performances, without being cataloged or labeled

“I listened to a lot of blues and rock but surfing mainly influenced the way I play. It’s like to go on the surfboard and improvise on the wave. That’s the way I play now, without too much thinking about the composition, but only about the sound that I like the most”
