Welcome to a jazzy fall !
DePhazz was founded in Protected content Pit Baumgartner as an open band project; even in the spelling "De-Phazz" appeared the first album Detunced Gravity. Haluk Soyoglu is co-founder of De-Phazz. From him, the name or the word creation "DePhazz" as an abbreviation for 'Destination Future Jazz'.
The idea was that each album should be a journey to another musical planet or style.
De-Phazz were known, among others, by their radio hit The Mambo Craze from their second album Godsdog.

DePhazz initially released his music on Mole Listening Pearls and later signed to Universal Music Classics & Jazz (Universal Music). Responsible label manager at MLP was Haluk Soyoglu, who signed Pit Baumgartner and then threaded the contract with Universal. Today, Pit Baumgartner and Haluk Soyoglu jointly manage the label Phazz-a-delic New Format Recordings, which has also featured DePhazz for years.

Most albums appeared in parallel as LP and CD. The band's live performances in clubs and at open-air concerts include light and color plays, projections and dances. In Protected content , the album Big was released together with the hr-Bigband.

The mixture of electronically synthesized sounds and a variety of instruments was from the beginning shaping the musical style of the band. DePhazz uses elements from Dub, Jazz, Soul, Trip Hop, Latin, Drum and Bass, Ambient and R'n'B. Also elements of the Turntablism are integrated into the music. Starting with Godsdog to Death By Chocolate, a change of style took place; they moved away from Trip Hop and Drum and Bass and continued to develop the style towards Soul and Latin. From Death By Chocolate, the music is generally attributed to the lounge.

Sounds good to me !
Looking forward !
