Andreas Ryser (Dustbowl) and Daniel Jakob (Dejot) started out in 2003 as mobile laptop street musicians at the gates of the Sonar festival. As Filewile the duo is following a strict DIY strategy. Music, production, distribution, concerts, merchandise – all done by themselves. Their policy enjoy all the freedom, take all the responsibility.

There latest release Blueskywell is described as a world full of bass and multi facetted vocalizing, switching from Jiggy Breaks to Ambient Electronics to Rootsy Reggae and Funky Jazz while dabbling with the freakish, psychadelic and experimental‚ without succumbing to the outright weird. Atleast this is what the record company would like you to believe.

My personal verdict is…. they actually do sound weird but in a good way. Especially the electronic spoken word track by the name of  “Swahee Swahoo”  kept me listening. So if you think you are ready for something that kinda sounds familiar but turns out to be something completely different I suggest you check ’em out!!
