After 15 years of forward-thinking musical fusion, Boozoo Bajou returned in 2009 with their most sophisticated album on !K7 as yet: ‘Grains’. Parallel Florian Seyberth – one half of the musical duo – has just completed another DJ-tour through the US and Asia playing clubs from San Francisco to Jarkarta and alongside the Studio 54 DJ-legend Francois Kervorkian, who has invited him to his “Deep Space”-Club-Night in NY several times. Also selected gigs this autumn saw them perform sharing the stage with such diverse musicians as Mulatu Astatke and Jazzanova.
Boozoo Bajou´s producers Florian Seyberth and Peter Heider are already widely celebrated around the globe for their unique blend of modern electronica with blues, jazz, soul, latin-music and dub.
Boozoo Bajou earned attention with their irresistible breakthrough single ‘Night Over Manaus’ in 1998, their 2001 released debut album ‘Satta’ and it ´s 2005 sequel ‘Dust My Broom’. They also demonstrated their excellent and wide-ranging musical taste on two excellent mix- compilations, ‘Juke Joint’ and ‘Juke Joint II’ on !K7. With more than 100.000 albums sold and their music being featured on over 300 compilations, Boozoo Bajou have managed to capture a wide audience with their individualistic approach to modern music.
In addition, Florian and Peter have remixed or collaborated with a diverse range of major artists. These include hip-hop superstar Common, Mary J. Blige, Jazz legend Pharoah Sanders, New Zealand’s finest Fat Freddy’s Drop, Songwriter Josh Rouse, Rapper Oh No from the Stones Throw camp, former Motown writer-producer and blaxploitation soundtrack legend Willie Hutch, and the veteran Louisiana singer-songwriter Tony Joe White, author of the all-time classic ‘Rainy Night In Georgia’.
Deeply rooted in dance-culture, Boozoo Bajou are well known around the globe for their inspired DJ-sets. While current live-activities involve a full band celebrating a more organic and jazzy approach to their unique music, Florian Seyberth´s DJ-activities are guaranteed to fill the floors. He started running his own club in 1996 and DJs around the world. Florian can be found behind the decks on his own, or with his musical partner Peter Heider or even alongside their long-time MC “T-Weed” from the Rocker Hifi Camp.
With his sophisticated mix of techno, dub, house, neo-disco, downbeats, hip hop and soulful tunes, he is one of the few DJs worldwide, who creates a fusion of all these genres and sounds, that not only has a red thread running all throughout the set, but also will build a positive tension with the listeners and will produce a coherent musical narrative. Playing huge festival like Big Chill and Coachella various times, Florian has gained an international reputation and has become an ambassador for the modern European music-scene.
Reaching their next level, Boozoo Bajou´s evolution is ongoing, so is their mission. The presently released remix-collection “Dust my Grains” (!K7) and the DJ Mix CD “Coming Home” (Stereo Deluxe) are their next releases in the first half of 2010. Both compilation-albums represent the innovative electronic-music side of Boozoo Bajou.
