It might be a bit surprising that one of the most international chill out and lounge music approaches released on Elektrolux so far comes from Switzerland. On the other hand, this is just a logical consequence as it is the only European country with four official national languages. By their debut album “Yeki”, the Zurich-based musician Flavio Maspoli and DJ André Baumgartner aka Espresso Del Lago want to go beyond constricting frontiers, to take up all kinds of multi cultural influences and to transform them into something new. This approach would not be complete without the particular charm and soul of human voices. Indeed, the album opener "Sa Trincha“ with Spanish vocals by Monica takes its orignal aesthetics from the idea of Mediterranean chill out in a Cafe del Mar style. However, it definitely developed a language of its own. The same has to be said for the impressionist piano of "The World Is Ours", the Persian vocal elements by singer Sitta in "Yeki" and "Suratat" or the African influences to be heard in "Digital Divide" which add a very exotic and sensual component to the soundscape of Espresso Del Lago. Finally, the Persian album title "Yeki" means nothing but two people becoming one - the magic thing only happening in the context of true love.

As most people already thought electronica and chill out have been for ever spoiled and degraded to cheap sell out labels by those countless and tasteless lounge and Ibiza compilations, a CD came flying in, ready to save us from this jazzyloungychill-mess of the last years and re-new our perspective on this genre.
This creation is entitled 2000 and Space and is nothing less than the latest project of Alex Azary and his from elektrolux to elux records re-labelled imprint, which has been responsible for various seminal projects and releases since beginning of the nineties.
Especially with the euro wide broadcasted TV nightshow Space Night on Bavarian stations br and br-alpha, Alex Azary significantly contributed to establishing electronic sounds and music in German TV, film and other massmedia, even making it into feuilettons of prestigious German papers ‚Die Zeit’ and ‚F.A.Z.’.
That was 1996 up to 2001. The last Space Night compilation Alex Azary compiled was Vol. 9. following attempts to keep the series going and benefit from the cult status of the series, can be described best as "me too". This in mind, it doesn't come as a surprise to see the shows for which the music has been selected by Alex Azary still on air every night, after more than ten years...
