Profile of the performer Rockin' Pony:
Rockin’ Pony is an electronic project of Michael Drumz and Sasha Rozet, founded in summer of 1998. The style of music sits somewhere between electronica and easy listening, with jazz elements and classical influence - ultimately, fusion. All compositions are based on (unrevealed) story lines which give the music a rich narrative structure, with strong emphasis on melodies and harmony, rhythm and style changes, and a positive mood with a particular, fine humour.
Their debut album “Hello” came out in December 2001 on German electronica label “Lux Nigra” (www.luxnigra.de) and received very good response from press and electronica fans. The album was compared to music of Plaid, Squarepusher, Plone. Other releases include a self-released promo 7” and numerous tracks on various compilations around the world.
“Rockin’ Pony” enjoy playing live and have successfully done so in clubs around Europe. During live shows they combine electronic equipment (synthesizers, sampler, drum machine) with live percussion and drums.
