At last the Prague band U-Prag released their debut album „44 thousand actors /in 16 flats“ (SubPub Records) and immediately have joined the cream of the Czech electronic music and indicated a possible way of development of the instrumental dance music.
The recent album presents apart of the incredible energy of the band plenty of sofisticated material that is skipping from the dance music to a quality electro pop however with a special incommutable flavour. Even if we find there some more simple and rather glossy melodies, they never leave a shallow impression.
After the release of their new album (it exists also in a purely instrumental version) the band U-PRAG seems to be in a very good position. They address many genres but are not superficial and this is what their fans and other listeners are appreciating.
