The founders of Brazilectro, Zuco 103, have done it again. Their newest album, After the Carnaval, makes ears salivate and hearts jump.
The bond between Rio-born vocalist/lyricist Lilian Vieira, keyboard man/producer Stefan Schmid (Munich) and drummer/producer Stefan Kruger (Amsterdam) goes back to 1998.

They’ve been on a rollercoaster since. Ten years of Zuco 103. Seen it all: from North Sea Jazz, Bumbershoot Seatle to Rock Werchter, playing everywhere: from Moscow to Tokyo. Quite a carnival.
The band did not just invent Brazilectro – jazzy, Brazilian and electronic components combined. The characteristic Zuco 103-sound lies in their choice of additives (Afro-Cuban, drum ’n bass, Ethiopian, West-African and dub) they’ve mixed along the way. Three musicians on a quest for brilliance inspire and enrich each other; they clash, there’s firework. It’s happening!
So again – of course – Zuco 103’s magical music cocktail adopts a new flavour on After the Carnaval. A remarkably peaceful album.

Remixalbum Retouched! after the carnaval will be released in Europe in april 2009.
This album features remixes by o.a Brazilian Drum & Bass dj Patife (famous for his Fernanda Porto dancefloor hit ‘Samba Sim’) Young Dutch talents Nobody Beats the Drum the Spanish House collective ‘Wagon Cooking’ filterdisco remixes by Kraak & Smaak and San Proper.

Zuco 103 SOUNDSYSTEM tours march/april featuring Stefan Schmid on keys and sounds, Stefan Kruger on drums and the charismatic Lilian Vieira on vocals. To this live setup they added funkbassplayer Alex Oele.
Inspired by the remixes of the retouched ‘After the Carnaval’ album and by limiting themselves they create more space and freedom for improvisation in the electronic sense.
