WALDORF - FASHIONIST

Waldorf The Band Kid Italy and Clark Steiner both grew up and enjoyed educational backgrounds in an environment based on a common philosophy of the Austrian scientist and educator Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) and his "Waldorf" schools around the world; a philosophy also known as Anthroposophy (i.e. wisdom of the human being), in which the heightened capacities of thinking, feeling and willing are seen as key to unlocking enormous potential.

They both met in the mid 90s in Italy and formed a band. Hence the name Waldorf. Using Rudolf Steiner's Philosophy, the Milan-based duo create perpetually unique performances with specially designed costumes for each show, backup dance troupes, and custom-built electronic instruments and their own characters on stage: The Wonderful World Of Waldorf is born.

In using elements of anthroposophical studies as with the case of the dance-ritual called Eurethmy it is sometimes unclear whether the band is making fun of it's own bizarre world or just using it as inspirational tools. A question the duo can't really answer since they grew up solely in this environment. In any case these elements combined with influences of todays Zeitgeist make their "world" interesting and unique.

After the underground success of their debut "You're My Disco" (also on A TOUCH OF CLASS RECORDINGS), which was featured on the Ministry Of Sound Compilation "This Is Tech Pop", their next record is finally ready! "Fashionist" is a sarcastic ode to the high gloss world of fashion and is produced by the New York City (Chinatown) based Electro-Punque driven production duo known as A TOUCH OF CLASS, and released on their label imprint ATOC (A Touch Of Class Recordings). On the A side of "Fashionist" you'll find a church choir-like intro to praise the gods of fashion and the "Original Disco Metal Mix" that, as the name indicates, plays with a mixture of energetic elements of glam-rock and dancefloor compatible driving beats to push the envelope even further. The B side features the "Disghost's Mix", a more Dance oriented and radio friendlier version of this truly innovative song. It is currently played by the likes of Felix da Housecat, Tiga, Jori Hulkkonen (Zyntherius), Miss Kittin, Tommy Sunshine, and every New York DJ on the pulse: a sure shot winner!
