WHO MADE WHO – KEEP ME IN MY PLANE (Funk/Indie – Denmark)

Who Made Who

WhoMadeWho are a Danish indie rock/dance-punk band from Copenhagen founded 2003 by falsetto voiced bassist Tomas Høffding coming from the Scandinavian rock underground, singer songwriter/guitarist Jeppe Kjellberg from the avantgarde jazz scene (with beard to match), and drummer Tomas Barfod – who also records as Tomboy – a rising star of electronic music.

Besides a number of 12” singles on German disco label Gomma Records and remixes for other artists, the band’s first full release was their self-titled debut, WhoMadeWho.

Their second album, The Plot, was released on February 24 2009. It showcases WhoMadeWho’s futuristic, danceable rock sound, always two steps ahead of musical trends.

GENERAL ELEKTRIKS – CLIQUETY KLIQK (Electro/Lounge/HipHop – France)

Hervé Salters is the artist behind one-man-band General Elektriks. A French keyboardist with a self-confessed passion for vintage keyboards, Hervé Salters initiated General Electrics just before moving to San Francisco. Using a computer and his oldschool keys, he started sowing together loops, Funky keyboards, light melodies and digital noises.

His debut, Cliquety Kliqk, was a collection of 12 retro futuristic pieces where electronica meets hip-hop and funk. The album was first released in France by Bleu Electric, then picked up by Compost for Europe and by Quannum for the US.

Aesthetically, GE is a project that refuses to be classified. A mix of vintage sounds, hip hop beats, dreamy vocals and cinematic arrangements, Cliquety Kliqk embraces all of RV’s musical addictions. Radically new yet strangely familiar, General Electrics is a breath of fresh air in your music collection.
