Boozoo Bajou are widely respected around the globe for their unique blend of modern electronica with blues, jazz, soul, latin and dub elements. Catch a selection of their choices on a Train Wreck Mix for Red Bull Music Academy Radio.
Florian Seyberth and Peter Heider, aka Boozoo Bajou, earned international attention with their breakthrough single, Night Over Manaus, in 1998, their 2001 debut album, Satta, and its 2005 sequel, Dust My Broom.
Boozoo Bajou also demonstrated their excellent and wide-ranging musical taste on two excellent mix compilations, Juke Joint and Juke Joint II. In addition, Florian and Peter have remixed and collaborated with a wide range of major artists. These include Common, Joe Dukie from Fat Freddy's Drop, Oh No from the Stones Throw camp, the legendary Willie Hutch, to name but a few.
For their recent LP, Grains, the duo made beautiful new sounds by blending modern studio electronics with live instruments and guest vocals creating an underground and experimental sound, but always based on strong melodies and vintage analog sounds.
Inspired by the resurgence in acoustic singer-songwriters, the obsessive record collectors fell in love with the Laurel Canyon generation of early 1970s LA and have made something fresh and modern from their old-school inspirations, weaving them into 21st century studio soundscapes. Boozoo Bajou keep impressing with their intoxicating mix of past, present and future.
