Frédérick Landier is Rubin Steiner, a French man with a German
pseudonym (because it sounded ‘exotic’). Rubin’s passion for mixing
music from unexpected genres earnt him a show with his local station,
Radio Béton. Next up was the Lo-Fi Nu Jazz series, a wonderful mix of
jazzy “small scale experiments that sounded like masterpieces” (you
could say it was lo-fi nu jazz).
His Wunderbar Drei album was released in 2002. An eclectic combination of bossa/jazz/rock/hip-hop, Wunderbar Drei brought on remixes by many of Ninja Tunes finest and a stage show complete with live bass, trombone and VJ. Rubin only gets better with his latest album; Drum Major.
