This week we have started a countdown to the show: daily posts are taking you through the (first) ten years of history of this awesome band, sampled by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z, on stage worldwide with the likes of Roy Ayers, Muse, Sun Ra Arkestra, Sharon Jones, Thundercat, Headhunters and as unique musicians with, amongst others, PJ Harvey, Mike Patton, John Parish, Stewart Copeland and Nic Cester (The Jet).
Ritornano Quelli di… Calibro 35, their second album, was released in 2010 by Nublu Records (in the US) and by Ghost Records (in Europe). The album includes mostly original music written as soundtrack for American documentary Eurocrime, but also features Calibro 35’s version of Ritz Ortolani’s Il Consigliori, as sampled by Jay Z on Picasso Baby. Another song from the LP, Calling All Units to Broccolino, was also used as ending title theme for Hollywood blockbuster movie RED, starring Bruce Willis and John Malkovich. The album charted number 7 on yearly CMJ World Music Chart (topping number 5 for five weeks in a row) and had extremely good airplay on college radio stations including KCRW, KXLU, WRAS.
We are happy to take them back to Luxembourg, this Saturday: the line-up of the night includes one of the most interesting new acts of Luxembourg, afro post-punk quartet No Metal in this Battle, and two support DJs, KustonBeater & LeGenco.
Come enjoy this great night of music, at Rotondes, on Saturday, May 19th: here the FB event, pre-sales are online here!!
