    Dixie Biscuit - Radio Edit
TAPE FIVE „the pioneer of electroswing“ is well known by it´s 3rd album „Tonight Josephine“ from 2010 with songs like „Bad Boy Good Man“ or „Dixie Biscuit“.
But there is also a lot of other stuff from this stylistically wide ranging artist. The main course in this mix of swing, jazz, dub, soul, latin, reggea, tango or ambient however is a big retro attitude!
The man behind TAPE FIVE is multi-instrumentalist and survivor of the post Hippie era Martin Strathausen from Germany, creating his stuff with vocalists and musicians from all over the planet. Early musical roots: Bob Marley, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix. Rebel music.
Limiting myself to this small space I also would like to mention:
The TAPE FIVE live band performs gigs from festivals to clubs, galas or private events and already carried the flag of retro spirit to dozens of countries in Asia, Russia, Europe and South America. Funny things happened abroad – players got arrested in the East, forgot their passports in the West or Sir Tom Jones played even before TAPE FIVE at a private show in Dubai. Not to tell the story of a russian minister at a hotel event on the Krim. Thats secret.
And of course songs have been used in ads and TV shows worldwide, but as the brave music enthusiast that you are, you won’t be interested in commercial matters like that. Spread the news...
