Varano

Step Up

MURENA RECORDS

Released: 13th June 2005 | 10 track album
It is not a debut, but a fresh start nonetheless. After six years and three albums, Danish duo Puddu Varano last year chose to go their separate ways. But one half, Morten Varano, is keeping the music and at least half of the name going. 'Step Up' is the first album by the new one man line-up. A delicious and loungy experience in sound, and an oasis of soul, downbeat, latin, afro and elegant pop. Morten Varano is by no means left alone, though. The ten tracks on the album is blessed by a number of guest appearances. Diane Charlemagne, known as regular singer with Moby, appears on four tracks. Another prominent vocalist is American Wunmi, who has sung for several of the biggest names on the more soulful and latin-jazzy wing of the club scene: a.o. Masters At Work, Trüby Trio and King Britt. Other featured artists include Norwegian singer Unni Wilhelmsen, the former Wynona-members Camilla Munck and Moogie Johnson, Swedish rapper Chords, bassplayer Sune Martin (Blue Foundation), brass player Jens Bjørnkjær (Nobody Beats The Beats), drummer Nikolaj Bjerre (Lamb) and more. 'Step Up' is the culmination so far of a musical development, that started back in 1997 when keyboard player Morten Varano and drummer Alex Puddu formed the duo Puddu Varano releasing their debut album 'Freakuency'. Over the years albums such 'Time To Grow' have picked up the support from DJ-stars such as Richard Dorfmeister, Roger Sanchez and Ben Watt, who put the single 'Blue Sky White Sand ' at the top of his DJ-chart. Unfortunately, in 2003 musical difference caused the duo to split, but 'Step Up' is proof that the story hasn't finished. It's a new chapter that has been opened...'
