Dr.no debut album called “Almost done” is released on 9th of August 2004. It contains music based on swaying rythms and spacy sounds enhanced with Karolina’s melodical, warm voices. Apart form typical electronic sounds one can find live instruments such as acoustic guitar, violin or trumpet. The whole material might be described as music alternative to pop.
dr.no was formed by Marcin Orlowski (bass, keyboards, samples) and Michal Orzel (keyboards, samples) at the end of 1999. People got to know the band thanks to popular youth radio station called “Radiostacja” and it’s music festival Pepsi Faza. Two of the early dr.no tracks “Funky fashion, funky beats” and “70?s” were placed on Pepsi faza compilations. At that time Marcin and Michal cooperated with vocalist Wit Dziki.
In 2003 U-zek, owner of Sissy Secords (BMG sub-label) invites dr.no to take part in his new compilation called “Projekt Si 031” where the band gets the chance to introduce a brand new track “Dziesiatka/ Free me” recorded together with a new vocalist Karolina Kozak. The track is picked to be the first single to promote the whole album. Thanks to that, dr.no shoots the first video. At the same time Karolina joins the band and all three start to work on the debut album with producer Bogdan Kondracki.
In march 2004 dr.no signs a contract with Sony Music Polska, which leads to release of the first single “Light” consisting of radio edit, two remixes and two additional tracks to be found on the debut album later on. Cool video with Karolina falling from the stairs is made by Iza Poniatowska and Real World Productions.
At the end of the year dr.no releases another single “The power of love”, being a cover of Frankie goes to Hollywood’s 1984 hit. The CD includes also two remixes - “The Power of love” and “Zanim”.
At present dr.no focuses on giving concerts and slowly starts to work on new material.
