„Cycling keeps your immune system young.“ During the summer of 2004 the DJ and Producer Ulf Lindemann a.k.a. [dunkelbunt] got on his bike and rode from Vienna to Istanbul. No problem for an old boy scout. No maps needed. Anyone can make it to the Danube Island, but to get to the Black Sea you have to follow the flow of the currents.

The reason for his journey was his love of balkan music which began in Vienna, where he established himself as a musician after leaving his hometown of Hamburg. His international breakthrough was his 2006 album „Morgenlandfahrt“, a mixture of Balkan, Gypsy Swing and electronic music. Not long after, on tour in Australia, he wrote his biggest hit to date „Cinnamon Girl“ together with his wife Barbara Tavernier and the Boban Markovic Orkestar.

Today [dunkelbunt] is one of the most important Global Beat Troubadours of the new millenium. He has played gigs in the townships of Johannesburg to the high society clubs of Hollywood whilst being the resident DJ in the legendary Viennese club "Ost-Klub" and the equivalent New York club „Mehanata“ in Downtown Manhatten. He has toured the world playing the major cities around the globe all the while constantly expanding his sound.

Intermittently he lives in Hawaii, Andalusia and Istanbul, has built up a worldwide network of like-minded musicians and DJ's and in 2010 founded his own record label. He can be credited with being one of the pioneers of Electro Swing, Balkan Beat and Global Bass.

His band is a constellation made up of fifteen different languages, every musician a universe of their own.
