Vikrant Kumar Thomas Junk Strange heat straight ahead. First track got me really excited. Buy the record to support a band with a great potential; we’ll see if in the future they will find their own language. In fact I would have wished for a little bit more strangeness; or in German language; Sehr gut die Hausaufgaben gemacht aber leider zu brav!

WANUBALÉ "Strange Heat"
release date: 03. May 2019

Wanubalé – nine guys from Berlin, inspired by the city’s fresh Jazz scene and distinct club culture. This band sets out to define their own, highly danceable version of Jazz, Neo Soul and Funk.

Wanubalé met at school. Five of the nine in the band went to the same musical high school in Berlin. There, in a dark basement jam-packed with equipment, Philip Schilz and Heinrich Eiszmann met for whole afternoons to built unique sound castles made up of bass drums, snares and everything else they were able to get their hands on. Thus, the two drummers built the foundation for the ultra-danceable grooves that define Wanubalé.
Heavy influences from Jazz, Neo Soul and Funk shape their compositions. However, electronic sounds are just as important to Wanubalé. All of the nine are in their early twenties. All of them grew up around the vibrant club culture of Germany’s capital. All of them are into Dub, Bass Music and Broken Beats. And several members are DJs, as well. Philip remembers one of many long nights: “Everyone around us was dancing. We were in the midst of it, analyzing why and how the beats work.”

The Wanubalés are first rate musicians. They tend to take their time writing arrangements, yet they are careful not to overly emphasize their jazz skills. Songwriting is a collaborative affair, everything is developed organically.
