[dunkelbunt] aka Ulf Lindemann like Kruder & Dorfmeister or Jazzanova - is part of the creative DJ movement which rose from the nightclubs in Vienna and the beach bars in Berlin to transcend the usual Central European techno and house club context by drawing inspiration from other genres and cultures. From his native Hamburg, [dunkelbunt] emigrated to his adopted home of Vienna. [dunkelbunt]'s job description lists DJ, composer, producer, radio editor and mixer of spices and his work includes remixes for artists as various as Balkan Beat Box, 17 Hippies and the Amsterdam Klezmer Band. His name [dunkelbunt] stands for diversity and the restless search for as-yet-undiscovered musical fusions. San Francisco, Istanbul, Barcelona, Melbourne, London, Budapest, Capetown - these were just a few of the stops on his never-ending Morgenlandfahrt of the past few years.

"Der in Hamburg geborene Musiker und DJ Ulf Lindemann sticht aus dem schier unuebersichtlich gewordenen Markt an Kreativkraeften weltweit hervor [...] In einem unglaublich umfangreichen Sammelsurium an Stilen fand er seine Mitte und seinen Sound [...]"

"Wenn es um die Vermischung von Balkanmusik, Dub und Elektro ging, war Dunkelbunt bislang die Referenzklasse. Der Wiener, der eigentlich aus Hamburg stammt, wird nicht zu Unrecht als Kruder & Dorfmeister der Balkanszene bezeichnet."
-Folker, Sep 09
"Best known as a DJ, the Vienna resident is one of the primary names associated with the
Electric Gypsyland sound of polished breakbeats fused with meaty brass and strings samples from Roma sources. He is renowned for absolutely turning a party out; eschewing cool, restrained breaks like his Viennese forbears Kruder and Dorfmeister, in favour of a quick stepping stomp best experienced with fast-acting, powerful liquor."
