Every now and then you stumble across something special at an unexpected place. Like Gilles Peterson put it three years ago: “Travelling the world on the constant search for the perfect beat, a soulful source has been found in Zagreb where Eddy Meets Yannah have dispatched one of this years most soulful electronic forays. It’s all about Croatia baby!”

Indeed there are lots of things happening in the Balkan state. Every year there are over 10 million people spending their holidays at its Adriatic coastline making it one of the most popular tourist regions in Europe. Furthermore Croatia is scheduled to be the next country to join the European Union. And with their critically acclaimed debut “Just Like …” and the follow-up “Once In A While” the gifted duo Yannah Valdevit (producer, singer, musician, songwriter, arranger) and Eddy Ramich (producer, arranger, DJ) definitely put Zagreb’s flourishing yet unheard music scene on the map!

After two more great singles and some much praised remixes (of Arthur Verocai, Elisabeth Shepherd, Bobby Caldwell, etc.) finally the time has come for album number three: “Fiction Jar”!

With “Fiction Jar” (release date: 26.02.2010) the duo offers a joyful fusion of sophisticated soul, urban beats, future jazz and sweet r’n’b harmonies to die for. Guest features include rhyme spitter Capitol A, UK garage master Zed Bias and Ras T-Weed from the legendary Rockers Hi-Fi.

Eddy Ramich has a lively history and is a household name in the music business. Being born in the Netherlands but of semi-Slovak / semi-Croatian nationality, Eddy spent his childhood alternating in the Netherlands, Slovakia, Libya and Germany before settling down in Croatia in the early 90’s to study at the Faculty of Business Economics in Zagreb. Before teaming up with Yannah in 2003 he released several productions with his former partner Dus under the alias of Eddy & Dus. Their album “High Life” and their remix productions for international acts like Ennio Morricone, Sun Ra or Nicola Conte caused a stir in the world of future jazz.

Spinning records since the late 80’s Eddy has also become a famous DJ with unbelievable technical and musical skills always creating a positive party vibe. Since 11 years he is hosting the Kontrapunkt club night at Aquarius in Zagreb featuring guest DJs like Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, 4Hero, Carl Craig, IG Culture, Theo Parrish, Martyn and many more. The Eddy Ramich “Eddy, Eddy Play On 101 Today” show on Radio 101 is getting bigger and bigger too. Right now Eddy is working on his new solo album “130 In Shade”.

Yannah Valdevit has an exceptional personality. She is one of the rare women who’re able to write, program and arrange tracks all on her own and she has got a whole lot of soul. It seems that this beautiful woman has dedicated her life to three things: the love of music, the striving for knowledge and the ability of doing everything on her own account. At the tender age of 8 she started playing piano and learning all about music theory. Later during her studies she became a guest vocalist for many Croatian jazz projects and she performed with the National Televisions’ Big Band. After being introduced to new club sounds such as broken beats or nu soul by Eddy & Dus in 2001, she started to write her own songs. To acquire skills in arranging, production and programming she spent the next two years working in a studio before joining forces with Eddy in 2003.

Last year she collaborated with Atjazz & Domu (on “Info People” & “City Madness”), Soulsource Productions (on the album “Slow Motion Replay”), Johnwaynes, Josip Klobucar (on “Shut Down”), and Ilja Rudman. At the moment Yannah is working on her conceptual solo album.
