laFayette’s debut record “Sputnik” was a promise: a promise that there would be more to come of this skillful mix of Electronica, eclectic guitar parts and beautiful vocals. The future begins now for the Basel based duo Jascha and Simon, with the release of their second EP “Mahogany”. After producing and mixing the EP themselves, laFayette turned to their fan base that helped them fund the whole project in a mere couple of weeks via crowdfunding. Finally, the baby is born and ready to be released.
Since starting to make music in 2009, laFayette have become a known name in the Swiss Electronica scene. Their tour in the fall of 2011 let them share the stage with internationally acclaimed acts such as FM Belfast, Washed Out or STRFKR.
laFayette appeal to wide audiences all over Switzerland and the neighbouring countries and have been given the title of “Electro Highlight of the Year 2011” by DRS3, the biggest national Swiss radio station. Their recipe is simple: sophisticated dance music with a large portion of soul and passion for every little detail of their songs. While on their records they construct little universes of sound, beautifully chiseled and with new details to discover with every listen, the live shows allow them to unleash some of the harder, party-proficient sides of their songs.
