THE WHITEST BOY ALIVE follow their own rules. They're four guys in one room - no overdubs, no FX. The music has to be recorded live in one take, and nothing gets added which cannot be played live. Fronted by famed DJ, producer, musician, and vocalist, ERLEND OYE (KINGS OF CONVENIENCE, 'DJ Kicks'), the Berlin collective have become synonymous with their distinctive blend of quaint vocals, minimalist melodies, and pillowy grooves. And on the eleven tracks that constitute their album, 'Rules', they convey one polite directive: please, move your body. Having recorded 'Dreams' in Berlin's legendary Cafe Moskau, this time THE WHITEST BOY ALIVE went to Mexico for the recording sessions: building a studio inside a house at the beach. The sessions, which were interrupted only by surfing and eating, resulted in around 300 different takes of the eleven songs - the best of which were melted down into 'Rules'.
