This trio from Oberwalden/Luzern has played in numerous clubs and open-air festivals in Switzerland, England and Germany over the past years. Their music is a flow through atmospheric sceneries where chilling dub-beats with hypnotic pads turn into fat club-grooves.

Tratosphere plays it all live and mixes the tracks like a DJ-set merging various styles as if it is one. What a journey!

Neue Luzerner Zeitung

“Tratosphere mischen Ambient-Sounds mit trippigen Grooves und schaffen es während ihres Konzerts eine grosse Welle zu erzeugen, die immer wieder neue Stimmungen hervorbringt…nuanciert, originell und mit grosser Schubkraft ,”

Press comments about "Bazar Bizar"

amboworld.com

„tratosphare weigh in heavily with their next release. less free form experiments in jazz and more dubby trippy fat and chunky sounds a la ott. this cd is top quality mountain music – we absolutely love it without reserve. different, intelligent, explorative, groovy vibes from the swiss trio. if there is a spot, these guys are on it!“

„Bazar Bizar (2005) is a very colourful, transparent album. Tratosphere has worked on it over a long period of time, at different places with different people. The three musicians extracted the essence, their best ideas out of their numerous live gigs over the past four years, and came up with this convincing studio album. …groovy, dubby but also chilly and sometimes beatless, hypnotic….always a perfect mix between acoustic and electronic instruments, as usual! For dessert they serve a track mixed and arranged by Rastailiens!“
