Alle Farben


The Kreuzberger Frans Zimmer has reached heights others can only dream of. Having evolved under the artist alias ALLE FARBEN over the past eight years, he is now in a key position in the German and increasingly international music scene, playing every weekend in clubs around Europe and surfing on the SoundCloud-Wave like few others. Combining styles and musical components that might not fit at first glance, Alle Farben has developed a unique sound that brings even the shyest dancers to move their hips and wiggle their toes. Crossing borders, adapting classics and forming them into his perception of electronic dance music, it’s not just since his epic performance on the first of May 2013 at the former Tempelhof Airport, where he performed in front of 35.000 people enjoying the sunny vibes and beats, that his music’s power of attraction deserves acknowledgment.Playing frequently around Europe, his sound has given him increasing attention in other parts of the globe such as Canada and Israel. Although his schedule is busy as ever – playing somewhere different every weekend – Berlin and especially Kreuzberg will always stay Frans’ home - a place from where he started out on this long journey with its current milestone being his debut album.As one would expect of Frans, SYNESTHESIA combines electronic music with thought-through live-recordings – tinkering a good year on the right album mix that also reflects his DJ-sets, it was a rough path since the album wasn’t solely created behind the screens of computers but very vividly with musicians in the studio. Wanting to develop and expand his musical scope Alle Farben looked for external influences, inviting internationally known vocalists such as Graham Candy, Sway Clarke II and Jenny Rossander, better known as Lydmor, to contribute to SYNEST HESIA. Meeting Lydmor in 2013 in Utrecht, Frans quickly convinced her to come on board, the mutual friend Pitto and his "Studio Stekker"-Week lying the foundation of the creative collaboration, since the main ideas forSYNEST HESIA were already being developed. Although of course a big step for Alle Farben, the album is no need for Frans to lose his head. Far more he’s excitedly awaiting the effects SYNESTHESIA will have on his career, not having to prove to anyone his firm place in the electronic club landscape – the album is a further piece of his musically multi-coloured world, inviting his listeners to dance with him.
