Four musicians from planet Bayou7 are enlightening the world with a new style of music so far unheard of on earth – the Spaceboogie!

From dead straight funk to soulful dance and bittersweet ballads, the album gives a raving and entertaining account of musical life on Bayou7 while taking the human listener on a musical trip to the hippest corners of the universe.

After first testing the music on enthusiastic European and African audiences in 2014, it was decided by Korkus* to expose all humans to the musical depths of Bayou7.

The studio of Commander Fux** in Berlin served as the perfect environment for the band to record the entire album live – no overdubs – no cheating – just raw music. The Swiss label Unit Records has been chosen as the perfect partner to spread Bayou7 culture amongst earthlings.


The energy captured on this recording may very well be classified as a milestone in authenticity and musical bravery. Travel agents might find it challenging to book a trip to Bayou7 in order to hear this truly galactic music at its very origin. Fortunately for everyone, The BootyJive plans to continue inspiring earthlings by performing their exhilarating live show at many venues across the planet.

* Korkus: Spiritual Guide of all Bayounians and founder of Bayou7
** Commander Fux: Bayou7 name of Ralph Graessler, the first human to study Bayou7 culture


  1. Papa Hooch
  2. It is known that, when Korkus finally turned back into his original form, his humble servant Hooch took care of these four orphans. No man has ever laid eyes on Hooch, but there is no doubt as to his existence.

  3. Schmooze Me (You Make Me Woozy)
  4. As ultra-terrestial as The BootyJive crew maybe, they still want to schmooze with you.

  5. Some Booty Love
  6. The cosmic mission of the crew includes that of spreading booty love around the extra-terrestrial vicinity of the greater Bayou galaxy space, because everyone knows, “some booty love is all you need…”

  7. The Wind Shall Carry Me Free
  8. The BootyJive crew brings you the first outer-space lullaby known to mankind. Its historical importance is due to its rarity of originating from Bayou planets number 7 – the mysteriously sweet of all planets in the universe.

„Extremely tight compositions packed with thrilling interaction… Interstellar at least, if not heavenly...“ (Bass Quarterly)

„This intensely rhythmic, disc shaped object grooves, it jazzes, it rocks with alien-like soundscapes and melodic twists that phaser-blast the old jazz and funk stereotypes to smithereens.“ (Concerto)

„Technically savvy and utterly convincing, jam packed with original humor, these guys are having a blast doing their thing“ (Drums and Percussion)

„Funk and Fusion at its best“ (Jazzrock TV)
