Radio Citizen - Express Brassmania

Jan Kohlmeyer Yuletide DJ Mix for Paris DJs

From electro-organic funktronica to jazz, soul & afro, Niko Schabel and friends a.k.a. Radio Citizen have already amazed us twice, in 2006 with Berlin Serengeti, and in 2010 with Hope and Despair (both on Ubiquity Records). Niko has been playing a lot live and improvising, with Radio Citizen, the Niko Schabel Quartet, the Express Brass Band and other bands from Germany. He cooked for Paris DJs this very nice brass band mix, with mostly live, unpublished recordings!

YBBB are my favourites. As a birthday gift for my son we traveled to Berne to enjoy their music, in addition after the concert he got a CD from Mr. Wagner. And now you made me a gift with this compilation for my birthday (nearly). Thank you!! -- Mike
