Biography

Mark Frank, DJ, drummer and singer and pianist Jochen Helfert are “Les Gammas”.

Jochen has been playing rhodes in a brasil-jazz combo – together with the Gammas` live bassist Pe Spier- where he has developed his own ideas of harmonics and sound. Marc, co-founder of Augsburg`s legendary “Vibe Klub” had always been obsessed by the idea of combining electronic and acoustic music. Though living in the same town. Trying to rearrange an old vocal-jazz tune, Mark despaired because his knowledge didn`t go beyond c-sus. The only suitable pianist for this complex song who came to his mind was Jochen. After some bars it became obvious that their musical minds thought along the same lines.“Les Gammas”, named after some extraterrestrial hippies of a TV language course, had landed.

Their first track,”Servus Mr. Bond” (Compost Records) had already conquered the clubs as dubplate before being put on their debut maxi. Since then the Gammas have been working on their own special soundworld, ranging between club and concert hall, exotic and electronic, between soul and soundtrack. The Remixes Marc and Jochen produced so far for Bugge Wesseltoft, Syrup and Moodorama are renowned. Every track is a step into unknown terrain, a pleasurable or unexpected discovery and revelation of the personal musical background, which was maybe thought lost.
