"Rumpelzirkus is the debut album of 33 year-old Sacha Winkler from Zürich. On vinyl, the album will be released as two 12"s. This first 12" with 4 tracks already demonstrates the musical bandwidth of Kalabrese's music. The Swiss musician diffuses the boundaries between listening and club music, even enters the pop dimension without being cheap. Thanks to the intimate lyrics and the many live recorded instruments, the music gains a very organic feeling; it flows lively. The four tracks vary in style and pace but still sound coherent; the melodies and sounds lumber straight out of the analog-kitchen. Sasha Winkler isn't looking for the smooth, perfect sound, his tracks with their rough edges and funky grooves prove his ability to make music with joy, alone and with others. As guest musicians Kalabrese has on board: Kate Max and Guillermo Sohyra on vocals, the 'rumpel-orchestra' with Michael Flury and Rockmaster K. Now raise the curtain for the 'Rumpelzirkus.'"
