IBRAHIM ELECTRIC ''The Xmas Album''
feat. Stefan Pasborg, Niclas Knudsen & Jeppe Tuxen.

"Through the past 10 years I’ve been joking around with my two friends in Ibrahim Electric about making an album with Christmas tunes only.
But they always laughed and said that it would most likely be way too corny…and they were probably right.
The only problem is this: I actually like “corny” !
To me the sound of hammond B3 and the Christmas songs are a perfect match - f.ex. I love the Christmas album by Booker T. & the MG’s !
And as a very young kid I grew up listening a lot to - and really enjoyed - the Christmas albums by Elvis Presley.
Making an album consisting of Christmas tunes has somehow always been a hidden dream of mine !
And which other constellation than the one with my buddies from Ibrahim Electric, would be able to fulfil my idea with a proper dose of groove, skills and integrity, combined with a - very important - humorous and embracing approach to “corny” !?
So it was clear to me, that the last and sixth album in my vinyl-EP-2018-collection had to be a Christmas album by Ibrahim Electric.
 
This album is the result of an inspired six-hour-studio-session filled with Christmas vibes and good energy - actually recorded on one of the hottest summer days in Copenhagen 2018" - Stefan Pasborg
I brought the sheets for the tunes together with some ideas for each track, and we took it from there…and we had so much fun jammin' and messin’ around with these familier tunes, while slowly twisting them into the sound of Ibrahim Electric.
Also inviting our good friend and recording engineer Thomas Vang - who actually happens to be a super great bass player - to join in for three tracks. And even ending up doing a duet together with my better half, Marie Bach Hansen, and thereby making my debut as a lead-singer on an album !! (what the hell it’s my record, right !?)...
 
I really hope you like what we did, and that you’ll have a very merry "Ibrahim Electric Xmas” - Stefan Pasborg
