Dynamoe is quite a unique electronica band from Denmark. They’ve met almost by accident in 1997, when both Giovanni Campagna and Dennis Lee were signed by the same label. After a long chat, they’ve discovered they have so many ideas in common that working together was almost a given… They’ve recorded three singles under a Belgian label R&S Records and ultimately released their first record “Jump Start” in 2001 under sub label Apollo. Both the singles and the album were very well reviewed by the press and the music industry and the duo, with their supporting musicians, went immediately back to work. They had their second album, “Coming Home”, ready to press in December of 2003. “In the Wake of Time” is the band’s third full album. All are available for donation/free download at www.dynamoe.com.
Dynamoe music comes in a form of an exceptionally well blended mix of electronic and live sounds. Giovanni and Dennis are experienced producers whom, with the aid of their programming skills and the use of additional musicians, create a hybrid of warm resonances, disharmonic ambience all wrapped up with slow groovy beats and soulful vocals.

I like Dynamoe’s latest album the most, probably simply because I’ve been listening to “You Convinced Me” slightly to much. There is something about the repetition in the chorus and the soothing vocals that get me almost hypnotized. In general, this album has a more of a rock feel to it, where the previous are bit more jazz and electronic skewed.
Some of the musicians Dynamoe works with incude: Adrian Wilding, Joy Morgan, Liz Wilson, Philip Owusu, Massimo Fiorentino, Fabrizio Mandolini & Loris Manca.
