One of the last fellows of the endangered "crooner" species & after 40 years in showbiz, Austria's Louie Austen is a timeless role model and elder statesman for old & young, glowing with confidence and full of power. During the span of a decade, Louie´s leapt from thriving as an enigmatic night club crooner to one of the most exhilarating performers electronic music has to offer. His oeuvre is as diverse as it can get: he enchants folks with his songs at the Wiener Burgtheater in a Johann Nestroy play adaption, he's been featured in the Oscar-winning Stefan Ruzowitzky movie The Counterfeiters, and you´ll also find him onstage at a hip, smoky Berlin underground electro club. One has a hard time trying to pin Louie Austen down. With the long-awaited Last Man Crooning/Electrotaining You!, Louie Austen and his producers were immensely inspired by James Bond, the power of funk & soul, and epic-ness in general. Beyond the seeming lightness and elusiveness of human emotion, there's a palpable, neverending love for music, a passion for women, humanity in general, and other cities. Louie was also greatly inspired by backflashes of his lively past during the '70s and '80s, when he was living in South Africa, Australia and the USA. As if one silvery disc was not enough, there are 2 CDs awaiting you with Electrotaining You! -- a remix album of all original Last Man Crooning tracks by a great variety of international DJs and artists, including Acid Washed, Christopher Just, Frittenbude, Ian Pooley, Filippo Naughty Moscatello, Matzak, Rodion, Eric D'Clark, Phonique, Mike Vamp (Märtini Brös.), Remute and Kinky Movement.
