Title: Elevator Music
Cat No: CPT 140-1
Format: 3 LP
“Elevator Music” – some people might think, “what a dodgy title”, but imagine that one day this sort of music will be played in elevators, shopping malls, airports, radio or maybe in your local yoga class… …how wonderful would that be? One thing is sure, the Trio will give their last record to realise this dream. Fight For Good Music!
After several 12inch releases on Compost Records, plenty of great remix works and the DJ-Kicks (K7 Records) compilation the Trüby Trio presents their debut album “Elevator Music” on Compost Records. On board are guest appearances by Joseph Malik, Marcus Begg, Wunmi, Concha Buika amongst many others.
The Trio was founded in 1997 by Rainer Trüby, Roland Appel & Christian Prommer. Since the very beginning they played in the Champions League of the dance business, as they brought different flavours like Brazil, Latin or even Disco music together. In doing this they were one of the inventors for a completely new dance genre. Ever since the interest in their music has been steadily growing. Just think of their remix works for such artists as Turntable Rocker, Nitin Sawhney, Peace Orchestra, Bebel Gilberto, Klaus Doldinger and Frederic Galliano. In 2001 they reached another milestone as they were asked to contribute their favourite tunes for the DJ-Kicks series, for which they also toured the world, where they were able to pick up all sorts of different cultural and musical influences for their inspiration, and finally they were able to work on a full-length album project.
Their crackin’ tune “A Go Go”, which can be considered as the first Latin Drum & Bass track ever, a long time before this genre was established. The track was on the second 12inche release (CPT 058) and made it onto the soundtrack score of the successful movie “Anatomie” featuring actress Franka Potente (The Borne Identity, Run Lola Run). The hit was also recently used for the United Nations Development Program’s (UNDP) charity spot “The Most Beautiful Gesture” featuring soccer pros Ronaldo and Zidane. The spot was broadcasted on various TV channels wordwide.
The Trio will be touring the world as DJs and also perform live at several special occasions, presenting their album. Check our website www.compost-records.com for more info on the tourdates.
About the boys:
Christian Prommer, Roland Appel and Rainer Trüby are part of the Compost family since the very beginning. Roland and Chris are famous for their Fauna Flash (Aquarius, Fusion, Confusion) releases as well as for their Voom : Voom project together with Vienna mastermind Peter Kruder. As few people might know Christian and Roland are both drummers, and used to play in competing Munich school-bands, later they both worked as professional musicians for various studio jobs, before they finally joined forces. Rainer was member of Compost act A Forest Mighty Black, and also made himself a name as superb compiler, as he did compilations for Nuphonic (Root Down 99), Talkin Loud (Talkin Jazz 3, with Gilles Peterson), and of course for Compost Records the Brazilian flavoured Glücklich series (Vol. 1 – 5). After all, most famous is Rainer for his DJ-ing. He already played at all the important underground venues in the world and his monthly club night “Root Down” in Freiburg, Germany, is very well known and was already home to many guest DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Kruder & Dorfmeister or 4 Hero. Gilles Peterson chose Rainer Trüby as his favourite DJ in his personal Top 3 DJ-Charts in DJ Magazine and Muzik. Rainer was also nominated for “Best DJ” at
the German Dance Awards.
