Wish ft. Alix Oder Nix, Mela, Will Magid & Paul Bertin

from The Vienna Tapes (LP) by dunkelbunt

  • Cassette + Digital Album

    The release "The Vienna Tapes (limited edition)" brings together selected [dunkelbunt] recordings of the years 2015-2019. It is the album of a mental and musical awakening in the realms of the Near and Far East: The journey takes off from the Balkans to the Maghreb and Kenya to the Arab Middle East and then ultimately to India.

    "The Vienna Tapes" were recorded at the [dunkelbunt] studio in Vienna and draw substantially from the pool of international and globally active musicians in town: Alix Oder Nix, the Berlin MC; South Indian singer Anuradha Genrich; jazz singer-songwriters Lisa Cantabile and Mela Marie Spaemann; rapper Cloud Tissa from Kenya; Moroccan Raï singer Kadero Rai; Rajasthan-born singers and percussionists Haider & Pintoo Khan.

    I am drawn ever more into the vortex of these musical worlds, and with the album release of “Vienna Tapes”, I cast the first stone into a raging stream, which I am calling the "Exodus Complex".

    Due to its exclusive release in the retro format of an limited-edition Audio Cassette "The Vienna Tapes - limited Edition" is unique. Besides, you'll find the release on all digital platforms, too

    The Bonus Tracks "Hiroshima Mon Amour" and "Modus Operandi" refer to the upcoming Asia Files.

"Wish" was created in collaboration with the trumpeter Will Magid aka Balkan Bump, the singer Mela (Maria Spaemann) and Alix. Magid, who is one of the most innovative Balkan producers in San Francisco today, and who gave me an impulse for the mix "Gypsy Trap and Oriental Bass”, contacted me during one of my US tours, introducing himself as a potential trumpet player for the band. He sent me the promo of his number "Irfan" with Paul Bertin’s (San Francisco) exciting saxophone hook, from which I made a Dunkelbunt live edit, which in turn was the basis for the basic trap beat in "Wish ". Again, I was fascinated by how to combine Arabic percussion patterns with 808 samples. The vocal parts are by the cellist and singer/songwriter Mela Marie Spaemann (Vienna) as well as by Alix, whose masterful and critical lyrics went over well with the live audience.
