SUMO are the two brothers Alex and Fred Sumi from Geneva, Switzerland. They explored the universe since their youngest age and were first known as BMX freestyle pioneers in Europe (champions of France and Switzerland) and already then tried to reach the sky and escape into another galaxy. They started their music career at a very young age and founded more than 15 years ago a soul-funk-electro project. From the beginning, SUMO is above the classical categories of styles, the brothers work with different electronic sounds mixed with real instruments and different rhythms as well Cuban syncopes. The red thread - it has to groove. SUMO released five albums and several maxi singles and gained praise and recognition, especially in the house and electro scene in USA, France and UK. As a live band, they have shared the stage with artists such as Faithless, Jamie Lidell or Gotan Project. Songs by SUMO are featured worldwide in radio stations (including BBC Gilles Peterson Worldwide and Nova) and were released on various compilations with Laurent Garnier and Moby.
