Real Name:
Sacha Winkler
Kalabrese is one of the more glittering characters in Zurich's night life. He has been active for the last ten years as a DJ, producer, promoter, and club owner. His rather original style as a producer has caused a stir outside of Switzerland – in 2004 with his Perlon 12", "Chicken Fried Rice", and in 2007 with his debut album "Rumpelzirkus". There, the music rumbles and works its way from a minimal approach to organic funk rhythms and song-oriented structures. "Rumpelzirkus" was received very well by critics and the independent dance music community all over the world. With his live band, the "Rumpelorchestra", Kalabrese has played an extensive 2007/08 tour in Europe and North America (Barcelona (Sónar), Berlin, Boulder CO, Bucharest, Catania, Firenze, Jena, Köln, Madrid, Montreal (Mutek), München, Plock, Roma, Zurich, a.o.) A new album is planned for early 2009.

Kalabrese performs live with the Rumpelorchestra (Rumpelorchester): Kalabrese (drums, vox, synth), Valentino Tomasi (synths, laptop, vox), Michael Flury (trombone), Marton di Katz (bass, guitar); Special guests: Benjamin Danech (trumpet), Evelinn Trouble (vox), Kutti MC (poetry, rap.)
