SUGAR BEAT LIVE ( Drums & DJ )
Drummer Steffen Meder supports Ralf GUM's DJ-set with his very own delightful appreciation of rhythm.
SUGAR BEAT is not simply a DJ with an additional percussionist, it is a groove creating a vibe, that is hard to explain and - above all - hard to resist.
At SUGAR BEAT Ralf GUM enriches his DJ-set with various influences from Afro to Jazz. No rhythmical boundaries, Ralf's unique flow and Steffen's incomparable way to play, takes the crowd to another level.
At selected top-clubs, e.g. the Cocoon (Frankfurt/ Main), the Zoo (Zürich/ Switzerland), the Mach 1 (Nuernberg) or the Cafe Republic (Salzburg/Austria) the listeners could already enjoy the effect. In January 2004 SUGAR BEAT followed the invitation to the highly recommended winter mo'vibes festival at Muffathalle (Munich) with pride and delight.
SUGAR BEAT's sublime groove creates a new dimension of live experience.
SUGAR BEAT - a magic connection of sound
With the ingenious fusion of Steffen's funky jazzy grooves and Ralf's sound a new style is created. SUGAR BEAT takes the mission to blow away musical boarders with an irresistible groove. The production team started as a trio including CrisP, but since 2008 all SUGAR BEAT productions are done by the duo Ralf and Steffen. After sweet remixes on GOGO Music during the last years, the first own productions have been released in 2006 on the "GOGO Music Spring Collection 06". More releases are currently progressing and will delight the listener soon.
