AKA AKA produced their debut album with Thalstroem. Since their first mutual live appearance at Watergate in March 2010, they have traveled around all over Germany, Austria and Switzerland, leaving behind smiling faces. Thalstroem who plays the trumpet and the EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument), adds a new, floating and harmonic layer over AKA AKA's productions. Therefore, besides the familiar dancefloor-oriented tracks, you can expect some more melodic productions on their common album Varieté -- for instance, their cover of "The Rip" by Portishead, which they recorded with the Austrian singer Betty Lenard. But you can hear it also on their own tracks like "Springtide" or "Été," and you know what this sound says: join us on a green summer lawn. But an album by AKA AKA wouldn't be an album by AKA AKA without a club-approved run which starts with "Bretterbude" and "Nozzle" and continues with a 2011 re-edit of massive club hit "Woody Woodpecker." Among these floor-smashers, the typical Burlesque Musique sound will not be missed! "What Matters," their second collaboration with Umami, the addition of drummer Lizzy and the percussionist Manu Manou show how widespread but still consistent an electronic album can be.
