Celebrating their eleventh year as a band, Wagon Cookin’ returns to their roots with a blend of New Wave, Disco and synth-based Funk—a sophisticated, retro-futurist, melodic landscape in Wagon Cookin’ style.
Enjoying a conservatory musical education from childhood, Javier and Luis Garayalde are skilled multi-instrumentalists. Along with their father, a scholar and saxophone player, they were part of various Jazz bands before developing an interest in electronic music, Acid Jazz and House in the 1990s.
Having released tracks on various imprints, including their own, they have enjoyed collaborations with the likes of Gilles Peterson and Masters at Work while touring internationally for a decade. Appearances at Popkomm in Cologne, Midem in Cannes and even a four night station at the Blue Note in Tokyo saw them sharing the stage with Eddie Palmierei, Azymyth, Marcos Valle and Chick Corea.
Moving from Madrid to Brazil, the duo found new inspiration and continued to fold their influences into a unique sound. The Jazz of their youth, the punch of House and the enchanting warmth of Bossa came together to form the Wagon Cookin’ sound – a recipe that could only be synthesized by brothers who have travelled the world; watching, listening, learning.
