“There's one thing that we will never do together, and that's make music!“ – „I can still hear myself saying that to Alix. That was about a year ago when we met up for the first time at the Wiener Augarten”, explains Mr. [dunkelbunt] telling the story of how his latest collaboration with the singer ALIX was born.

Born in Berlin, Alexander Leuschner was one of the influx of German students who came to Vienna taking advantage of Austria's affordable University system. Last summer he applied to [dunkelbunt] for an internship and although it had been made clear in the job description that the position did not incorporate making music but focused on the ins and outs of how a label operates he still sent in one of his songs along with a wonderfully brash application letter.

“When I listened to it I immediately felt like I'd met my musical soul mate and that was the reason I had to ring him to arrange that meeting at Augarten. Then after a few days of checking each other out we decided to make music together.” „Es ist egal, wo Du herkommst und auch egal wohin Du gehst, solang’ Du nur dem Weg Deines Herzens folgst und dafür gerade stehst....“ (“It doesn't matter where you come from or where you're going as long as you follow your heart and stand with pride...”) that was the first of his contributions that burrowed it's way into my head, a chorus that Alix wrote over the [dunkelbunt] Riddim “Schlawiener”, more or less as an acid test. A few weeks later he was standing with us on stage at the „National Tennis Center Bratislava and now I couldn't imagine [dunkelbunt] & Secret Swing Society without him.”

The first fruits of this collaboration will be released this summer with “Augen zu und durch” and “Süßwasser Salzwasser” the lyrics as the titles suggest are in German, “We inspire each other equally. My music is a homage to him and his lyrics are a homage to me which is both beautiful and liberating.” says Mr [dunkelbunt]. “With that foundation we decided to make an album together and the first release is the track “Boomeræng”, incorporating rap, vocals and swinging hip hop beats, using oriental and western instrumentation with a urban and nostalgic flair.”

Ulf Lindemann aka [dunkelbunt] was born in Hamburg in 1979 and came to Austria at the beginning of the millennium to study and make music. In 2002 in his Vienna studio he began to merge electronic music with Balkan, Gypsy and Swing sounds and along with his contemporaries like Waldeck, Parov Stelar and Shantel who helped popularize the new music genres, „Electro Swing“ and „Balkan Beats“.
On his albums, songs and remixes he captures the hum of the Global Village in our Cyber Age cooperating with over 150 musicians and incorporating 14 languages. Urban beats, grooving basslines, electronic and organic instrumentation and rhythms from the whole world. Mosaics of sound, soundbites and field recordings from his travels invite the listener to dance or to dream.
