With his long awaited debut album Madame Sound Nomaden proves that his musical repertoire has far more to be revealed than just Electro Swing. He is a real traveller in the world of sound always searching for a new definition of music. The eleven tracks on the album combine influences of Swing, Jazz, Folk, Ska and even Classical Music with an up tempo club vibe and give us a new insight in the versatile work behind one of the leading DJ's and producers of the Electro Swing Phenomenon.
Beside MSP his partner in crime, well known through his expressive live saxophone performances, Sound Nomaden worked together with numerous guest musicians including Anja Kreysing, Das.Schliep, Cab Canavaral and Martin Knott. As the consequence the album defines a new generation of electronic music where powerful synthesizer and heavy club beats fuse with acoustic instruments like accordion, piano, trumpet, violin, tuba, guitar, saxophone and clarinet.
Snowflake, the pre-released first single of the album is a deep and jazzy House track with a catchy saxophone solo, warm synth sounds and electronic beats. With its emotional fusion of genres that suits every club set as well as a chill out mix for a launch or a listener at home, Snowflake already gained more than 70.000 plays on soundcloud.
With a similar smooth atmosphere the second album track Little Bird is definitely a feel good song and a potential next summer festival anthem. When the voices of tropical birds melt into groovy percussions, melodic piano chords and stunning synth pads, MSPs Saxophone solo does the rest to leave you with a smile on your face.
The title song Madame tells a fictional story about the first vis-à-vis with a breathtaking woman in a bar back in the 20s. Swinging piano lines, grooving beats and walking bass, topped by emotional Saxophone parts guarantee to give you goose bumps on this one.
As well as Für E-Lise that is characterized by Beethovens well-known piano melody over a pushing offbeat, The Trumpet and Akkordeon Hipsters come along as energetic dance floor fillers that will leave no hip unmoved.
While Zirkus with its happy clarinet and xylophone melodies sounds like the perfect musical background for a circus rave, Sad Swing with its brass and organ lines represents a more laidback view on Electro Swing.
Tear Of Joy another track featuring MSP on saxophone with its distinctive robot vocal over a melodic piano line, turns out to be a retro dance track made for the 21st century. Minimal Klezmer sounds like a deep after hour club track spiced up with some smooth clarinet and guitar parts while the final song Singing Pirates features the great accordion player Anja Kreysing. If youve never believed its possible to transform a waltz into a house track, this track will prove the opposite.
Madame sounds different than the majority in the electronic music world because it is an ambitious attempt to fuse acoustic music and club music, to bring more diversity onto the too often repetitive musical landscape.
