[dunkelbunt] invites us on a musical picnic and serves assorted specialities from around the globe - some of them frisky, some melancholic. The "Picnic with [dunkelbunt]" is colourful, and all those drawers are wide open: Lonely Drifter Karen bewitch with their blend of chanson and mystic folk - french hiphop courtesy of Manau meets Skeewiff's electro blues groove (including a sample from the Coen Bros. movie "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?" by the way). Next up: a rare Imam Balidi remix of Bouzouki legend Manolis Hiotis. More where that came from:
Arthur Lee's almost forgotten soul hit "Everybody's Gotta Live", Oi Va Voi's Klezmer "Ladino Song" featuring the mesmerizing vocals of KT Turnstall. Then, crazy Parisian duo Nôze feat. Dani Siciliano sends an invitation to "Danse Avec Moi"… and when indie rock meets indian pop, it sounds like Firewater's sizzling "This Is My Life". Buenos Aires sends two acts who couldn't be more different: while Axel Krygler's "Princesa" sneaks in on an oriental nu jazz tip, the DJ Delay Dub of Tremor's "Viajante" smartly balances digital and analog grooves.
[dunkelbunt]'s latest single offering "Schlawiener" caters to those who love electro swing, just like Mad Manoush's "Illusionen" does - the latter fueled by Django Reinhardt/Stephane Grapelli inspired gypsy jazz.
No other outfit represents the "new mediterranean sound" like the Watcha Clan does: from their home port Marseille they absorb gnawa from Mahgreb just like they do Balkan brass & turkish arabesque. Their tribute to this picnic is "Goumari" in the infamous DJ Click version - on other occasions they already got remixed by legendary 4Hero!
Baba Zula from Istanbul gained worldwide reputation upon being featured in Fatih Akin's "Crossing The Bridge" documentary - they recorded their picnic contribution "Cecom" during sunset on a boat on the Bosporus river. The vocalist on that track is Brenna MacCrimmon, who worked with a.o. Shantel before. And talking about "Crossing The Bridge": Nil Karaibrahamgil's "Bencil" is a souvenir from [dunkelbunt]'s bicycle tour along the Danube river in 2004, travelling from Vienna to Istanbul.
