New Single Tanz Tanz Tanz
The first music of Fortuna is out now. Tanz Tanz Tanz is the opening track of the new album.
Jasper de Beer; ” After experimenting a lot with the band with all kinds of cross-overs I wanted to write a fast instrumental party tune with a traditional vibe s. Producer Stefan wanted to hear a yell or some short words, so i came up with “Tanz Tanz Tanz” The title is a bit tongue in cheek because when a klezmer band comes up with a song named like this you would expect something old fashioned sounding. Well this is not the case at all. Stefan rejuvenated this klezmer tune with his producer skills by adding a funky back beat and some spicy sound effects.”
