Newest Love: Electro-Swing Band Klischée

k

Their sound is international and their ambitions are spot on. The musicians and entertainers of Klischée have been working
meticulously on their electro-swing oriented music, but now in the year 2013 they seem to have definitely found their own signature.
Their latest singles “Tiquette”, “Sometimes” and “Tin Tin” are proof, that no stage is small enough anymore, for the producers Dominique Dreier, Kilian Spinnler and their Crew. Performances all over Europe are part of the agenda even before the release of their LP and it won’t be long until Klischée becomes one of the rather more successful CH-export hits. The five members can look forward to some eventful days and we’re eagerly expecting whereto the musical path these five electro-swingers will lead.

Newest Love: Caravan Palace

Caravan+Palace+CaravanPalaceFnacIndetendances

“Imagine sashaying into a night club, looking to get down to some thumping electro, only to hear swing music from the 1930s. That’s just what you’d hear if you happen into a club where the band Caravan Palace is playing. And if you hang for just a moment … you’ll be dancing.” – NPR

“[Panic] is terribly cool and fun to listen to.  The musical magic is evident on every one of the 14 cuts… one of the best shows of the summer, no doubt.” – KCRW

The sprawling musical collective known as Caravan Palace are celebrated worldwide for pioneering the sound of electro swing. From their 2009 eponymous debut album, which sold over 150,000 copies (and made them a surprise breakout band from France that year) to their latest album Panic, they have always combined their trademark studio technology with incredible musicianship and infectious onstage energy. This seamless and thrilling fusion of Django Reinhardt / Stephane Grapelli-inspired gypsy jazz with Daft Punk-inspired dance beats and crisp production has justly won them a legion of loyal fans.

This summer Caravan Palace will once again ignite dance floors across the country when they return to North America for a 29-date tour that is not to be missed. To celebrate the tour, the band is also re-releasing their last album, Panic, along with a FREE MP3 of “Clash” (Jupiter Remix).
