After being relatively quiet for a couple of years, Wagon Cookin’ are back with their fourth studio album.  Released on Smoke N’ Mirrors/Om Records, the album fittingly titled ‘Eleven’ sees the Spanish brothers Javier and Luis Garayalde celebrate eleven years since they formed.  Thirteen tracks include vocal collaborations with Odille Lima, Ladis Sité, Melina Jones, Ricky Husbands and Roberto Q. Ingram.  Juno Plus have described the Wagon Cookin’ sound as ranging from “nu-jazz era ‘live’ workouts and straight-up smoky deep house”, drawing comparisons with 80s electrofunkers Imagination and contemporary disco-housers Crazy P, and the same range applies to this stunning LP project.

‘Eleven’ sees the duo synchronise with what is being created stylistically in the most advanced musical circles of Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. A return to the New Wave, Disco and Synth-Funk from the early 80’s where the first digital synthesizers, funk melodies and uber-compressed rhythmic patterns are intermingled to create a sophisticated, retro-futurist and melodic musical landscape, all done with typical Wagon Cookin’ flair.

Wagon Cookin’ was born from the deep passion of brothers Javier and Luis Garayalde for good music and delicious food.  They also share also the experience of living together in a genuine railway wagon, which once ran on the great Trans-Europe-Express at the beginning of the 20th century and is now is situated near Madrid in the foothills of Sierra De Gredos.

Both skilled musicians playing several instruments they were part of various jazz bands before developing an interest in electronic music, acid jazz and house in the 1990s. Starting out on Chris Duckenfield’s Odori imprint, they have gone on to work with Compost and Lovemonk, as well as forming their own label Appetizers which led to collaborations with people like Rainer Trüby, Gilles Peterson and Masters At Work, and three critically acclaimed albums.

Eleven is released on Smoke N’ Mirrors, sister label to San Francisco’s infamous Om Records, and responsible for recent outings from Hot Toddy, Ian Pooley, Pezzner and Body Language.
