After two years of intensive touring (from Amsterdam to Istanbul, South by Southwest to Eurosonic), the guys of C-Mon & Kypski (Simon Akkermans, Thomas Elbers, Daniel Rose en Jori Collignon) decided to give their fantasy a helping hand. With unshaven beards they left with a camper van full of ideas and recording equipment to Morocco. Over a period of four weeks they created what is now their third and latest album 'Where the wild things are'.
C-Mon & Kypski unite a whole lot of genres into their own sound, from afrobeat to electro, a psychedelic dreamtrack that is coverted to a pumping rocksong. Where do you find klezmer and tango seamless united into one song? Of course, C-Mon & Kypski.Until now C-Mon & Kypski did every dirty job on the album themselves, but on their new album they thankfully make use of the services of rappers Sadat X (Brand Nubian, USA) Pete Philly and Kain (The Last Poets, USA) saxophone player Benjamin Herman (New Cool Collective) The Amsterdam Klezmer Band and the rockers of Voicst also collaborated on the album.
