Outlet - this name is a synonym for energy,
power and life –so is the music of
"Electric Outlet". Played with
love and passion, driven by the insistent
impetus everybody initially felt when they
were discovering music. “On!”
is a classic combination between high-energy
"Rock" and "Fusion"
without big overdubs and being totally playable
in the live arena.
production gimmicks apart from these few
samples and totally handmade help bring
the organic nature of this release to the
fore. The basic idea for the band came while
listening to the album "Spectrum"
by Billy Cobham. This attitude and the idea,
putting Rock-musicians (Tommy Bolin, Jan
Hammer, Leyland Sklar) together and make
them playing fusion-orientated stuff, made
the musicians think about doing an album
with a similar approach but 30 years later.
Deml (Guitar): his unique, intense
playing and his highly recognisable tone
makes him one of the leading guitar players
these days. His project "Errorhead"
earned internationally respect. He played
with SAGA, BOBBY KIMBALL, and KINGDOM COME
Aeschbacher (Keys): music is music
- doesn't matter which style (Keys) life
is life -and fun is fun. If you put all
these three components together, it describes
best, the way he plays and feels –no
more to say.
Itt (Bass): "The Groove Rulz!"
this is the motto of his playing. Precise
and powerful, Frank is laying the fundament
and keeps the music going. He played with
MICHAEL SAGMEISTER, BOBBY KIMBALL, PILI
PILI, and ERRORHEAD etc.
Gustke (Drums): Groove in combination
with incredible technical capabilities and
a sensitive understanding of music makes
him one of the leading European drummers
available. He played with XAVIER NAIDOO,
SÍHNE MANNHEIMS, and CHAKA KHAN etc.
