TASHEENO is a musical crossover project led by the musician and production team Paul Krackowizer and Felipe Ramos. They first crossed paths at local events in Linz, Austria, then worked with many artists from Jamaica, Africa and the US on their summer festival tours and at club shows. These shared musical experiences helped form the concept of TASHEENO.
The project is also supported by ace engineer Markus “Syrix” Lechleitner, Jakob “Jacky” Mayr, one of Austria’s most in-demand trombonists and multi-instrumentalists, and the charismatic guitarist Lukas Höfler. All of the participants have been active as live or studio musicians, producers, or musical directors for more than 15 years.
TASHEENO’s music is based on 3 elements: beat, brass and vocals; the latter often bolstered by interesting effects and edits. The band collaborates with international reggae, afro and dancehall artists to augment their colorful mix of sounds and grooves. The result is a mixture of analog and digital instruments, samples and live brass, with an emphasis on the hybrid groove and electronic sound.
