Number 1 Club Band. The unmistakable intoxicating and unique club sound sweeps everyone off their feet. The band has been on stage for more than a decade and inspires with their own sound. Accordingly, it doesn’t stop with the techno version of the Pink Floyd classic “Another Brick in the Wall!” which mixes in with Adele’s “Rollin the Deep.” A DJ’s own sound becomes more live musician and melds with the musicians on stage to create a total show package. Ideal for staff parties and customer events- young, dynamic and distinctive. The band has already been on tour with Mousse T. as supporting act and is known far beyond the borders of Germany for its extremely extensive repertoire, which includes not only Funk & Soul classics (interpreted in UCB’s own style), but above all songs from the House genre, which elsewhere are only played by DJs. Of course, one or the other disco and rock classic must not be missing in a UCB set.
House is a popular electronic dance music style that originated in the 1980s in the United States. It typically features rhythms usually produced by drum machines in 4⁄4 beats at 110 to 130 beats per minute: Bass drums on each quarter note (“four on the floor”), snare drums per second tap or clap quarter notes, and turn on the hi -hat on the middle eighth note. House is considered one of the earliest successful electronic dance music styles. Music genres have been particularly influential in the development of technology and its scenes. The two styles are similar and sometimes difficult to distinguish, although techno usually means faster and more “machine-sounding” music than house. The name “house” comes from the warehouse in Chicago, the first club to play this type of music.
Funk is the collective term for various primitive African-American music developed in the late 1960s under various influences of soul music, rhythm and blues, and jazz, which in turn greatly shaped and influenced musical styles such as disco, hip-hop, and house. The basic stylistic feature of original funk is the repetitive basic rhythm, which multirhythmically combines the alternative rhythms common in all R&B styles, emphasizes “one”, divides the bass line and accented horn part, and interacts rhythm guitar and soul vocals. Another characteristic of funk is that the bass line is comparable in simplicity and melody to the human voice – perhaps funk’s most outstanding innovation. Every instrument and vocal is understood to be the basic idea of a rhythm instrument, which minimalistically and boringly creates the effect of drums in classical funk music. Funk first became known through the music of James Brown and Sly Stone.
Soul music is a major style of African American popular music. Soul music developed from rhythm, blues, and gospel in the late 1950s. By the 1960s, soul was almost synonymous with black pop music. The history of this style is closely linked to the struggle against apartheid and equality in the American civil rights movement.
