The DJ and production duo Balduin was united in 2015 and has been fascinating fans of Electro Swing and familiar genres with their original sound ever since. Over 11 million people have listened to their Original Songs and Remixes on Spotify, YouTube and SoundCloud.
The two minds behind the project are like Yin and Yang, lightning and thunder, light and shadow: While the eccentric multi-instrumentalist Benedikt Kuhn likes to fascinate the crowd with his live sax and clarinet performance, Martin Straka, the introspective sound designer, tries to advance towards his vision of the perfect sound in the studio. These awesome vibes get the crowd on their feet in no time.
For some time, Balduin has worked together with Wolfgang Lohr, one of the big players of Electro Swing. The high quality productions of this Frankfurt-Berlin connection, which are released on the in-house Label Balduin Music are sure to delight any connoisseur of Electro Swing music. These collaborations are mixed in between other selected hits of the genre during the live shows. Balduin is looking forward to moving their listener – in German goodbye means “Bis Bald” so we say: Bis Balduin!
This Bad Segebergian-by-birth and Berliner-by-choice has been a mainstay of the electronic music scene since 2011. Among his 100+ tracks are remixes for artists (Felix Jaehn, Parov Stelar, Alle Farben, Lexer and Tinush) and a wicked spread of self-productions in the Electro Swing, House, Tech House, and Deep House genres.
As Lohr explains it, “the motto, ‘now more than ever,’ says it all. Electro Swing is what I’m all about right now, and this is the moment that everything is happening in that space. But it could be that the scene fades. Who knows. So it’s just as much as I can do all the time, release after release, project after project.” This dogged delivery has made Wolfgang one of the most sought-after Electro Swing artists worldwide.
Beyond his work as Wolfgang Lohr, he can be heard under various other guises, forming core constituencies of the House duo “DINKS” and the Tech House outfit, “Dorade”. He is otherwise active as a producer of music media and is one of the heads behind the “Electro Swing Thing”.
Prior to his emergence as a producer, he served as trumpeter, singer, and songwriter for the ska band “DaSKArtell” for over 15 years, as well as concertizing and performing in-studio for a variety of other bands. His music blog, “FDF” is a beloved collection of carefully curated tracks with a weekly audience of +30K followers!
