After years of exploring the depths of musical genres and the boundaries of blending, mixing and refining rhythm patterns and harmonies from around the globe, the two Berliners Dirk Leyers and DJ Nomad expressed their hard earned musical freedom in a project that included guests from different corners of the world.
Instead of using mostly samples from other musicians, the two recorded all of the instruments themselves, mixing analog sound with synthesizers and drum machines. Raw traditional rhythm and sound with electronic finesse
In Spring 2012 they took the project to another level, turning their Studio project into a full live act, working with e.g. Ghanaian master drummer Eric” Sunny” Owusu and Dodo Nkishi and different vocalists.
Their quality performance could be witnessed at countless festivals worldwide, among them legendary stages like Dekmantel, Mutek, Unsound, Nuit Sonores, Worldwide Festival, Djoon Experience etc.…
They're debut single "Lagos New York” for Golf Channel Recordings was dubbed as "one of the most important releases of 2014" by several blogs, e.g. charting third place on the annual “furtive 50 " charts of Dj History.com.
2016's Album " Basar " on Golf Channel links the musical upbringing of the two producers with the talents of some of their friends to create a rarely found variety of genres without ever losing their unique trademark sound. It shows how multifaceted the project is, creating listening music with the aesthetics of dance music and vice versa: Jazz, Gospel, African Drums, Detroit Electro Synths, Blues Guitars, fragile Trip Hop Vocals, Jungle Basslines and again House music are amalgamated into something that is way more than just another World Dance Music Album.
The show is part of the series "Always in a Good Mood".
