Over the years, genevan duo SINNER DC has built a solid yet discreet reputation on the international electronic music scene. Their ethereal intergalactic yet catchy melodies, full on emotions and melancholy, became throughout the years the band's trademark.
Co-published by the prestigious Museum of Ethnography of Geneva and swiss renowned Mental Groove Records, this first album entitled MEG/CDG inaugurates a new series of CDs devoted to contemporary compositions sourced from the monumental audio archives of the Museum (read below*).
MEG/CDG's backbone contains music from Romania, Niger and southern United States, from the mid 30's to the early 50's that the genevan duo SINNER DC selected while browsing the museum database .
MEG/CDG is a kaleidoscopic album and a scenic trip - the title of the album and the songs are of IATA airport codes and explores the limits of the panoramic vision of the duo through hypnotic landscapes and imaginary places.
