We collect many records belonging to the Disco era and study the great old Italian geniuses such as Giorgio Moroder, Ennio Morricone, Franco Battiato & Franco Falsini. On our first tour we met a lot of interesting people. They made us listen to bands who reminded them of us. A band from Belgium called Antena became the soundtrack to our daily life for a moment. Then, of course all of the African music inspired us. We named our baby girl after Fela. The 70s in Nigeria were the main drag to getting the project started. Slowly we traveled North with our minds and discovered tons of old time eclectic artists from Tunisia, Morocco and Ethiopia. We love when pulsating beats warm our blood. We kept going until we reached the Middle East and India then found our way to the beautiful Vietnamese and Cambodian female singers.
We fell in love with a bunch of Japanese weirdos through the internet. Back in New York, we are still fascinated by the history of the East Village and the Lower East Side.
We feel fortunate to be living down in Flatbush, Brooklyn where there are all different ethnicities living together, exchanging thoughts and rhythms. Excluding the wealthy evil who are trying to put us all against one an other so they can take over.
We believe in magic. You can’t buy magic. Or majesty.
Happy to announce that we've just finished mixing our first full-length album which will be out in January 2017 on WWNBB Collective. We took our songs for a walk across the park from our house to Shahzad Ismaily's Figure 8 Recording Studio down in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, NY. There we spent some quality time with magical sound engineer Eli Crews, our beautiful producer Michael Busse and the crazy talented harpist Mary Lattimore.
The album will also feature the sexiest saxophonist of our time, mr. Kyle Forester and the most human drum machine being, Andrea Mancin, along with free vocal jams by Babouette Fela Dona & Fritz Cook. Additional engineering was done by the legendary Gary Olson over at Marlborough Farms, around the corner from where we live in Flatbush, NY.
We're extremely excited to digitally share with you the bonus tracks, outtakes and b-sides from the upcoming album as a sneak-peak, mixed with the help of Italian king of pop Alessandro Paderno. In doing this we also announce that we'll be heading to Europe in September for a tour that begins in New York City this summer. Stay tuned and get your ticket to dizzyride.
