The name Wagon Cookin’ comes from a genuine railway wagon which once ran on the great Trans-Europe-Express at the beginning of the century and is now situated in the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos, near Madrid, where Javi and Luis Garayalde used to live until 2003. The two brothers have been cookin’ up music together since they were kids. Both are extradordinarily gifted musicians of known prestige that are searching for that special and differentiating sound. The first result of their ambitions was the album “Appetizers” released in 2002 on their own label.
In 2003 they packed their pots and pans, left Madrid behind to travel across the atlantic ocean and settle down in new kitchen, located in Salvador in Brazil, where they recorded their second album “Everyday Life”. The ingredients remained the same but their efforts to merge electronic dance music with classical bossa and jazzy brazil were now flavoured by a whole bunch of talented live musicians giving the Wagon Cookin sound an enchanting deep and warm feeling.
After a contribution to Rainer Trüby’s “Glücklich Vol.5” Compilation the two brothers return to Compost with a straight club banger for the acclaimed Black Label Series. No bossa and live instruments but tight programming and a funky Baila Me Base-line spiced with soulful vocals that guarantees to get the party live. Once you Start To Play – you Don’t Stop!
