Parov Stelar & Band (A)

With his unmistakable sound-mix of Jazz- and Swing samples and electronic music, Parov Stelar has secured his own unique position in the world of music. His eagerly awaited fourth album “Coco” will be released soon. With the „Coco Tour 2009“, the tracks of his new LP and many of his well known tracks from previous albums and singles will be presented on stage.

After his initial record releases, using different aliases as well as his real name, Marcus Füreder founded Etage Noir Recordings in 2003. Since then he has released all music under the moniker Parov Stelar.
In 2004 his „KissKiss EP“ and the soon after released album LP „Rough Cuts“ provided his breakthrough in the international electronic music scene. His uncommon approach to music-production combined with an assured sense of sound-aesthetics led to massive respect from his colleagues and the reputation as the pioneer of a new genre (which Rainer Trüby once called „Minimal Jazz

The following albums „Seven and Storm“ and „Shine“, as well as numerous singles and remixes made Parov Stelar one of the most reliable and successful artists of his kind. His tracks have been used in numerous TV-ads and soundtracks, while being licensed to more than 600 compilations.

After starting as a solo artist – not so uncommon in the electronic music scene – and gaining initial success, in 2005 Parov Stelar decided to expand his on-stage music with a full band. This collaboration with four musicians noticeably infl uenced his work. Since that time, the Parov Stelar Band has become very popular, captivating both the audience and organizers of many festivals, venues and clubs with the magic and dynamic energy of their liveshows.
Locations with a capacity of 3000 people or more - especially in Eastern Europe - are routinely sold out when the band comes to town as headliners. Besides the fact that Parov Stelar enjoys great popularity in Eastern Europe, he also won over crowds in Asian countries such as Russia, Indonesia and South Korea during the last year.

Barabás Lőrinc Eklektric

The music of the Barabás Lőrinc Eklektric group is a fusion of jazz with different urban styles like hiphop, reggae and dub. Its members are both classicly trained professional jazz musicians and incrazed underground rappers. Their music can be described as a very close one to the worlds of Erik Truffaz and Miles Davis, where a characteristic minimalist trumpet-play is most present, but also traces of many very different contemporary music styles can be found in its sound.
The band-leader trumpet player was invited by the father of nu jazz, Nicola Conte, to be the guest-musician at his performance in Budapest.

Line up
Lőrinc Barabás: trumpet
Julianna Fábián: vocals
Mátyás Premecz: keyboards
István Bata: bass guitar
Jávor Delov: drums
