let’s get it on tonight

the 2005/06 recording „let’s get it on tonight“ is my first collaboration with new york rapper jus nyce. it is being promoted during the soccer worldchampionship in germany in 2006 and receives about 59000 online hits.

the site it was promoted at was called “wet-tshirt-worldcup” where you could let girls from various nations dance to the song, pour some water over their shirts and all that sort of fun.

the site is no longer online, though…

I recorded the song in a friend’s basement in brooklyn and for the vocals we went to famous quad studios on time square.

I did two versions of the song, each with different backing vocals. one version features dutch singer aafje, the other new york singer mia rebel who is crazy cool!

no trespassing, debut album ORkAaN ORkEstRA

in 2004 I went back to new york to work on music I wrote over a stretch of 3 years. the result is the debut album „no trespassing“ of my group ORkAaN ORkEstRA, released in april 2004.

the album received wide critical acclaim and worldwide airplay on both major and independent radiostations.

Scott Colley, bassist with herbie hancock, jim hall, among others, wrote about the album:
„ORkAaN ORkEstRA has created a beautiful recording. the music is
arranged with a wide array of influences. the use of electronics with
the acoustic instruments adds interesting textures at just the right
moments. the music on this recording also makes me sure that this was
made by a real group. created by artists that all had input. It is very
clear from the first listening that the ORkAaN ORkEstRA is a true
collective.“

it was a great experience to work with all these wonderful musicians.
there were dimitri moderbacher on reeds and flute, steve blanco on piano, steven nasi on drums, will de vos on french horn, and dave kirkpatrick on noise guitar. recording engineer was john hopkins, who was crazy enough to put my ideas about production to action. very cool stuff!
