Ensemble Du Verre (E.D.V.) was founded by the composer, producer and musician Sönke Düwer in 2003. Since then, a number of albums and EPs did see the light of day, including a “CD of the Year” of Art Online and the “Prize of German Record Critics” in 2008.
Musical independence, diversity and stylistic boundlessness are basic elements in Ensemble Du Verre’s music. Jazz, Dubstep, House and Breakbeat merge and create the unique E.D.V. sound, like on the new album “The Light Gets In”, which perfectly represents personal expression and creative potential of producer and multi-instrumentalist Sönke Düwer. He is a thoroughbred musician with a lot of live experience. Ensemble Du Verre starting their Tour in winter 2013/14.
“The Light Gets In” is a homogeneous collection of songs, performed by the debut singer Shirin Al- Mousa. She sings on all of the 11 songs, as well as she wrote the imaginative and often ambiguous lyrics. Her multifaceted vocals bring the jazz and soul into their music, giving it an intimate warmth and beauty. Her impressive vocal flexibility adds a very special touch in the predominantly downtempo songs.
Pulsing, electronic soundclouds, fat beats and bass, spiritual music of the 70’s and Fender Rhodes creating a new path in the musical landscape of today. Deep roots in jazz as well as the background in Djing are evident at any time. Also essential are great melodic diversities that never bore the listener at any time of the album.
