Coming from the heart of New York\'s experimental music scene, the highly promising project of Zach Danziger and Tim Lefebvre indicates new directions and offers fresh ideas to jazz up the world of drum\'n\'bass. Stitching together programmed tracks, samples and live sequences, the duo\'s debut album \'Clearance Sale\' is given vigorous support by guest musicians Bill Frisell, Till Brönner, Jim Beard and, from London\'s drum'n'bass scene, Matrix and Plug. Drum\'n\'bass meets jazz on a truly high-class level. Tim Lefebvre is a versatile Bass Player on accoustic as well as on electric bass. His musical flexibility is enormous. From funk to hard bob up to rock - Lefebvre knows and is able to play the whole repertory. Apart from his contribution to Boomish, Lefebvre is also bass player of the Wayne Krantz Trio and he plays with Bill Evans. Furthermore he played with Donald Fagen, Bob James, Philippe Saisse, Angelique Kidjo , Chuck Loeb and Dennis Chambers. He was also co-producer and musician during the productions of Till Brönner, Hildegard Knef and Manfred Krug. Zach Danziger is the second part of Boomish. This drummer is a popular musician on the east as well as on the west coast. He played with Michel Camilo, Randy Brecker, Leni Stern and Bob Mintzer. But his actual and own universe is the electronic music. He is one of the most popular and most asked drummer for live drum´n´bass and jungle. Together with the cymbal producer Zildjian, Zach even developed a \'Zildjian Re-Mix cymbal line\' for live electronic performance. More and more the friends Zach and Danziger developed a great pleasure and interest in the London electronic scene. We may be eager in expectation of the live gigs together with a lot of guests on stage in the first months of the upcoming year.
