Welcome to Wolkenpark!
Wolkenpark – this metaphore describes the sound of the quartet of Swiss musicians pretty accurate! The band is performing its own compositions using an attractice blend of modern club styles, funk, ambient, chillout and drum‘n‘bass. All that becomes their jazzy original brand, being called «Urban Hybrid Sounds». Coming all from a jazz background (three of the guys teach at Swiss jazz schools), they impress with nasty grooves mixing synthesized sounds, live looping and effects with the acoustic sound of their instruments – trumpet (Kriz Flueler), rhodes (Julien Boss), electric bass (Jean-Pierre Schaller) and drums (Andy Brugger). With Wolkenpark they join their experience of playing together hundreds of gigs in various combinations since the early eighties. If there has ever been a blend of Glasper, Zawinul, Miles and Goldie – here it is.
While being banned from the stage during the bondage of Corona pandemy (loosing an already planned tour to Russia in 2020), the guys concentrated on studio work and recorded their first official album. The single «Lazy Day» will be released on May 10th, further single releases will start in summer, while the album will be out in September 2022 – the chance to experience Wolkenpark live on tour!
«Wolkenpark» won 2017 the «Nightclub-City Original Song Contest» with «Frappantine», the Track «Cheerful Waiting Room» was elected for the Christie’s Lounge at the exhibition Art Basel in Miami and «Sparkling Water» got a 3rd price at «HOFA Production & Song Contest 2018».
