Press Release :
Unique 100 - a long and extensive story: A story, a decade, 10 years of club- and label culture from Duesseldorf. And hence unfortunately the Unique Club became a part of its own history in january 2006, the "Unique 100" album should be a different exhibition of the Unique Record Label and celebrates us as as well as our affectations - with an A-Z selection of the repertoire of more than 100 releases - it will also be compiled in a comprehensive book in 2007 so stay tuned! Tracks, which appear in the sense of a concept album such as Re:Jazz, Senor Coconut's 'El Baile Alleman' and Nouvelle Vague - a back to the roots story of electronic music.

In respect to UNIQ100: From acid jazz to breakbeat, balkan, funk, soul, bossa-nova and neo-60s-soul - tracks from the key groups and producers of Unique Records: Our european hit single 2003 "Hip Teens' and "Breakaway' by The Frank Popp Ensemble, Eli Goulart with his classic "Meu Samba', "Funk The Rich' from Malente, "Daddy's Back' by Ben Human, N.O.H.A. with "Balkan Hot Step' (which was used fort he worldwide NIKE Shox campaign 2004), "Rock'n'Roll Star' from Urban Delights, The Corduroy themes "Something In My Eye' and "Mini' (with vocals from Ben and Scott Addison!), "On The Moon' by the Addison Industries and of course Unique's most influential artist the Xaver Fischer Trio with the medley of "I Sing This Song Just For You' & "Follow Me'!

Unique loves Mambo - and Mambo loves Unique! The idea to ask the musicians from the latin group Lex Eazy & The Mambo Club to come up with new arrangements and re-recordings on a 24-Inch tape machine was born during the Jazz-Rallye 2004 and the first gig of the Mambo Club in the Unique Club - an ensemble, odd for latin with vibraphon, brazilian percussions, piano and doublebass, that can really play any repertoire as mambo-versions, each listener has the impression of enjoying the original version instead of a cover song. You have the feeling that you know the songs ever since! An idea and project that celebrates musical virtuosity as a key element. An album that satisfies the original sense of what Unique Records is all about and further about our perception of clubculture: Quality Songwriting, b(r)ands and their development, real live-shows, energy that is only being created by improvisation and chance - celebrating the power of the composition and songs in general - and their sustainablity! Music distanced from any short term trends, manifested in jazz! Music in 5/4 or 7/8 bars, odd verses, even refrains, exiting and suprising troughout. Laid back ChaChaChas, Bossas, Mambos and timeless Sambas. Lex Easy & The Mambo Club makes you want to dance. Vibraphone, doublebass, piano and percussions are bringing the flair of the early latin music of the 50s and 60s in New York - live and direct at its best!
