trüby trio – elevator music

this record isn’t coming out until june, but i still want to say something about it. “elevator music” didn’t grab me at first, it took me a while to get the songs. mabbe the fact that on the promo the songs are brutally cut off [a pre-emptive strike against mp3 piracy] has something to do with it, i don’t know. but rainer trüby, roland appel and christian prommer did a great job fusing disco, flamenco, samba, bossa nova, house, hip hop, drum&bass and, yes, pop. it’s a grower, this one.
