PRESIDENT BONGO began properly mastering his craft as a founding member of the pioneering electronic band GusGus, which has steadily gone from strength to strength since forming in 1995. As GusGus evolved and progressed through the years Bongo remained a key element, making innumerable contributions to its ongoing success through his work, which ranged from design, film & photography to singing, songwriting & production. In spring 2015 President Bongo left GusGus to concentrate on his own solo career and now releases the project “Serengeti” via Albumlabel in October 2015
“SERENGETI” is a strong album full of musick that refers, beneath the African picture, to a concept of electronic music between krautrock and clubsound, between electronic and sample art and instrument usage (guitars, bongos, strings), echos, delays and pure sound. Krautrock to the floor and experimental music with a clear and deep flow.
