Based in the Netherlands Electronic Bodyguards are Robin "JAYDEE" Albers and French producer Ricoslide. The Electronic Bodyguards is all about smooth sensual sounds, rhythms and emotive songs.
While Jaydee explores his downtempo side with the Electronic Bodyguards project, he is actually also the producer of probably one of the best known House anthems ever. â€œPlastic Dreamsâ€. Ricoslide also has an uptempo past having made several electro dub records and playing keyboards in several reggae bands. Together these influence meld and the temperature falls through the floor to a chilled frozen quotient. Their music has been described as Electro-chill, deep-lounge or electronic downtempo. After 2 years and 15 tracks the resulting album is upon us and proudly being released here at United Recordings.
This album reveals an unexpected variation of sounds and styles. Whilst electronics feature heavy in the back bone of most tracks it also crammed full of classical instrumentation and free form performances. You can also here elements of dub, electro and jazz. Album opener and recent single â€œAre U 4 Realâ€ is a perfect touchstone for the sound of the album; jazzy rhodes, smooth sax, silky vocals and George Benson-eque jazz guitar.
Sit back, relax and let the bodyguards safely accompany you on a sonic journey....
