ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Filewile are a laptop duo seen rocking nightclubs throughout Europe for the last four years with their heavy dub infused Breakbeat, House and Electronica sets. Coming partly from a DJ background, they sure know what it takes to move a crowd even with a slow beat. It's the
underlying Reggae vibe that carries their tunes and their crowds, putting the foundation to every kind of tempo and branding their trademark sound. This year Filewile take a step towards mellower, more Pop orientated spheres, by releasing their first full length album «Nassau Massage» on their own label Mouthwatering Records.

Filewile have built a strong international network through consequent online endeavours: all tracks to date are published online on www.filewile.com, most of them available free of charge. The album «Nassau Massage» brings together guest artists from many corners, known and lesser known. As part of a remix exchange Nicolette (British vocalist formerly of Massive Attack fame) visited their studio in Switzerland, New York rapper and now Berlin resident RQM put in two tracks including the single track «Damn», Rider Shafique and Mr. Melody from Son of Man / Pressure Drop Soundsystem alongside Baby Chann bring on their versatile UK Reggae flavours. Furthermore local talents like the Swiss resident Ghanaian singer Joy Frempong, rapper Baze and Switzerland's only underground country-star Zeno Tornado help make «Nassau Massage» a tight pop-Electronica album with a strong Reggae foundation.

The Filewile sound interacts beautifully with the various styles of the guest vocalists. Joy Frempong's bright, many layered and deeply melodic chant may sound angelic at first - yet reveals darker, more dangerous notions as her whispers interweave with the sonorous Dub-Funk
on «Dogstore Bombay» and «Babylon Beach».

It comes as no surprise, that Filewile do a lot of work for films, - many of the tracks on the album carry a strong cinematic quality. This becomes most evident on the songs featuring rappers RQM and Baze, both transmitting strong narratives. RQM rhymes humorously and sexy while Baze conveys the darker end: on «Victorinox» he tells the story of a man's suicidal inclinations on top of a strongly melancholic, subsonic Dub tune. Big music, big stories.
