"album review"

English Translation:


Well, they can’t help being charming, the five gentlemen who make up the vibrant, Danish quintet Vincent Van Go Go. They kick ass for real on their debut long-player, the frisky, stimulating and 100% superior Do U Know? An album as sexy and charming as a happily intoxicated Brazilian whore of mixed heritage, and about as swinging as a pair of moonshaped butt cheeks swaying unworried around the Copacabana. Despite the Brazilian references – and parts of the album were actually recorded there – the five gentlemen serve up a mixed bag of primarily soul, funk, reggae and hiphop with just a hint of jazz and latin. And they do it so ardently that the listener, no matter what time or day ,will get the urge to immediately hit the dancefloor, imaginary or not. Party music at its best; amazing, amusing and positively optimistic. –Lyn

Music for your party
“We want to make positive music and make people dance”, says the band. Vincent Van Go Go has mastered the art of making music with a profound but at the same time positive and sometimes playful spirit. The debut album embodies elements of reggae, soul, funk and hiphop, but the recurrent theme is the positive vibe. Vincent Van Go Go will kick start your party and make it last all night long. No doubt!

“After a slow morning of coffee and cigarettes Vincent Van Go Go was the fresh mint that instantly cured a packed tent of equally hung over festival goers. All of a sudden yesterday’s festival mud had turned into a sunny sand beach. Half way through the show a mirage of four beautiful girls passing out beach balls to the dancing audience appeared. You had to pinch yourself to make sure it all wasn’t just a dream….”

“From beginning to end Vincent Van Go Go proved what a tight ensemble they are. In full control of the music they take the audience from climax to climax in the often extended versions of their songs, which despite the tight arrangements still leave plenty of room for fun, improvisation, happiness and experimentation. But don’t be fooled by the group’s partiality for happy, danceable tunes; beneath the surface there is an arsenal of musically challenging titbits that make the music so much more than simple summer-fun.”

Feeling a bit camera shy


Vincent Van Go Go consists of five members. The group is based in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. Vincent Van Go Go makes people dance, so naturally the group started out as resident band at a small club. Vincent Van Go Go soon caught the attention of a number of other Danish clubs including the renown Copenhagen club Mid Week Brakes at which the group gave bimonthly performances throughout 2004 and 2005. Performance wise, Vincent Van Go Go makes an effort to stay in a constant state of renewal and has performed alongside artists such as Tina Dico, Jovi Joviniano, Camille Jones, Zaki, Per Vers, Peter A.G., Little T, Tom McEwan, Karen, MC Einar etc.

Music made for dancing

Vincent Van Go Go started recording the album in 2002. The album is recorded partly in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and partly in the group’s own studio in Denmark. ”Our main goal is to make music with a positive vibe and make people dance. We believe that it’s possible to deal with serious issues in our songs and still stay positive on the whole. We aim to make people think about life while remaining hopeful about the future. This philosophy stems from a longtime fascination with Brazil and our trips down there continue to serve as a source of inspiration in our music”.

Where many Danish groups turn towards the melancholy of London and New York, Vincent Van Go Go has chosen the warmth and openness of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Vincent Van Go Go has made two consecutive trips to Rio and performed at various venues, among which Ipanema beach.

Vincent Van Go Go’s debut album “Do U Know?” was released in Denmark on January 23, 2006 on Murena Records / Playground Music Scandinavia.
