Compared to the first album which was mainly inspired by Balkan odd metres and lyrical melodies this second album is bringing into play all members’ ideas, sensibilites, inspirations and feelings to create a unique sound fulfilled with effects, dub elements, rock drums, ‘Tarantino’ guitars, spacey and open improvisations..​

Tome Iliev, Valentin Baumgartner and Adrian Böckli alias "Gaston" celebrate jazz / worldmusic. The three musicians got to know each other in the bands Extrafish, Nozez and Tome Iliev Sextet and have maintained a lively exchange ever since. Songs from their pen, from afar and near invite you to dance at dawn.​


The diverse Nozez cultivate the fine art of the Balkan-Gipsy-Strassen-Chabbis. The basis - their voices, acoustic instruments, old folk songs and modern club music, emotional live performances and their long-term friendship. There is love on stage, in the hall and everywhere you go.​
