De-Phazz – Music to unpack your Christmas present

This year De-Phazz finally gives us the long awaited Christmas album with “Music to unpack your Christmas present”. From pre-Christmas baking and decorating to unpacking the presents on Christmas Eve, this is the perfect soundtrack for the end of the year.

For 20 years De-Phazz accompanies us consequently with lounge jazz & soul through the year. The trio can be heard on dance floors, in bars and in the living room at home. After 15 albums there is now a special present for Christmas: De-Phazz & Co „Music to unpack your Christmas present“

For cozy christmas days

Light jazz meets samba, soul, trip-hop, Latin and R’n’B. The loungey mix of songs is perfect for wrapping presents before December 24th and unpacking them afterwards. Make yourself at home with candlelight, tea or mulled wine and let your thoughts fly by.

Lay back and enjoy the songs that De-Phazz & Co present us on their new album. Many guests have arrived in the studio before Christmas. This year, Pit Baumgartner, Pat Appleton and Karl Frierson will be accompanied by Sandie Wollasch, Caro Trischler, Barbara Lahr, Ulf Kleiner, Jeanne Crémer, Jo Kraus and many others for a contemplative, lounge-like Christmas.

A look through the year with Pit Baumgartner

Here is a review of the year and an outlook from De-Phazz producer/sound designer Pit Baumgartner. The founder of the self-proclaimed ‘lounge-punks’ gives MUSICSPOTS some personal insights. Thanks for this.

Asked what brings Pit Baumgartner to create new songs, he says he prefers to experiment with old (unpopular) samples and redesign them. Pit sees himself as a collage artist who produces “recycled music” or restores music with the new digital “tools”.

Note by MUSICSPOTS this is, probably the most fitting and beautiful description for the always lounge-jazzy sound of De-Phazz.

The combination of his own now and sometimes slidely crazy humour and tendency to cynicism, Pit Baumgartner continues, he shares (without being proud of it) with Pat Appleton. You can hear this of cause in the lyrics. Currently, he is concentrating more on production for children. The musical spectrum and the variety of genres is much more colorful here.

Livemusic highlight 2020:

“Am ergreifendsten fand ich den musikalischen Beitrag der Band „Les Primitives“ (M.Dörsam, E. Ditzner,Laurent LeRoi) auf der Beerdigung meines Freundes.”

Outlook 2021: 

“Ich freue mich auf den Jahreswechsel :-) in der Hoffnung auf…..(aber das geht wahrscheinlich jedem so?!)”

3 favorite songs in 2020:

1. Go Loko – Tyga, John Z
2. Heaven’t done nothing – Stevie Wonder
3. Ghetto Heaven – The Family Stand

Stevie Wonder beschreibt bspw. sehr treffend die Wahlperiode in den USA 2020, mit einem Text, der mind.n 40 Jahre alt ist (Weitblick), Tyga ist einfach nur cool und Ghetto Heaven relativiert meinen Lockdown.
