YOUR FUNNY UNCLE
Your Funny Uncle is electroArtPop. It is electronic music based on synthesizers, sequencers, drum machines, vocals and vocoders.
The artist behind Your Funny Uncle is Vinnie Albani, who was born in Basel, Switzerland, and lives in Zurich since 2005. He has always been fascinated by synthesizers and is inspired by artists such as Vince Clarke, The Human League, Martyn Ware, Soft Cell, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre, Anne Clark, OMD, Marsheaux, LCD Soundsystem or Pet Shop Boys. Actually, a Pet Shop Boys song inspired the projects name Your Funny Uncle.
During the 90s, Vinnie had a musical solo-project called Vision and formed the synth pop duo This Play with Dominique Zahnd in 1997. The critically acclaimed CD-album 'Popcorn' and several live- and tv-gigs followed. This Play's last release was an arty music video for the song ‘Monster’ in 2010. The duo never officially split, but this video marked the end of This Play, Since 2012, Vinnie is working as a solo artist again, now under the name Your Funny Uncle. While some of his tracks have since been remixed by DJs, he officially started releasing material in 2019.
With the start of a new decade, Your Funny Uncle released much more material and established his work with appearances in several radio stations, charts and social media channels. In 2020 and 2021 live appearances were mostly not possible or at least difficult to organise due to the covid pandemic. Still, in September 2021 Your Funny Uncle headlined the Rainbow Art Festival in Basel/Liestal. Due to the great success of the performance and strong demand, Your Funny Uncle was happy to headline the Rainbow Art Festival in Basel again in 2022 on an even bigger stage.
