For years, TAPE FIVE has had expanding global record sales and millions of streams. Selected songs can be found on about a thousand compilations ("Café del Mar", "Campari Lounge", "Swing Mania" and many more), they can be heard on Ad-campaigns from Spain and Hongkong to the USA and are playlisted on countless radio stations. The multinational band based in Germany has successfully played venues including the UK, Switzerland, Holland, France, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Russia, South Korea and Brazil bringing their own brand of uplifting swing and danceable mix of styles selling out the coolest clubs and concert halls all year round.
The brand new album "Circus Maximus" is an irresistible mix of Swing, Electro-swing, Nujazz, Soul, R&B, HipHop, Disco, House and Balcan. Martin Strathausen, ring leader and director of this melting pot, welcomes his top artists into his Circus tent or rather his studio arena. Once again the tried, tested and trusted TAPE FIVE brass section, and the vocals of Brenda Boykin (California), Henrik Wager and Iain Mackenzie (both UK). New in the ensemble is Dionne Wudu (South Africa) - thrilling us with tracks like "Mad Dogs On The Scene" with her powerful and soulful voice
