WHO MADE WHO :: released April 04 2006
WHOMADEWHO. Three guys from Denmark that have a very unique sound. They play DISCO. But not so much mixing it with (Post) Punk and New Wave like so many other bands right now. WhoMadeWho use lot more influences: from Surfrock to Folk to 70ies Funk. And sometimes it feels like the guys heard a dose of Italodisco and Cosmic tapes before recording.
One of the interesting things about WhoMadeWho is the fact that all the three members have totally different backrounds. Tomas Barfod – the drummer is known as one of Skandinavia’s best electronic DJ’s. Jeppe Kjelleberg , guitar player, used to live in NYC where he was established in the local Avantgarde Jazz scene. He even recorded an album with former Lounge Lizzard guitar player DAVIS TRONZO. And Tomas Hoffing the bass player is also member of danish garage rock band Garbo..
The band released three singles in the past 8 months in Europe - but these 12inches caused a good buzz and heavy rotations with DJ’s all over the place. Expecially the new single SPACE FOR RENT (and The Rapture’s Rmx of it) is currently getting a hugh response (“Leftfield single of the issue” in DJ mag) and their cover-version of Benny Benassi’s 'Satisfaction' is still a hit in many clubs.
Pete Tong featured it in his Radio One – Essential charts and 2 MANY DJ’s featured a few WhoMadeWho Songs in their latest Radio One mix. MTV in France and Italy and MTV in UK put the video on rotation. The 2 MANY DJ’S/ SOULWAX guys a such hugh fans of WhoMadeWho that they invited the band to do their live support on their big UK tour in autumn 2005. Same with MYLO who invited the band to support them on their tours.
WhoMadeWho is a exiting live band. Currenly they get invited to play in clubs all over Europe. From TRASH and OPTIMO in the UK to the KILL THE DJ party in Paris, festivals like MONTREUX JAZZ FESTIVAL, SONAR and 10 DAY OFF and the FUN club in Berlin, where they already are something like regulars.
