Puracane on Astraea Records

Based in New York City, trip hop group Puracane began in 1999 with British artist, singer Ali Rogers and American producer David Biegal. Their first album, "Things You Should Leave Alone" was released in 2000 by Ubiquity
records. Their 2006 release, "In Limbo: The Lost Puracane Sessions" through Bulletspace records, consisted of songs conducted through various combinations of band members.
Puracane has played with bands such as Sting, Duran Duran, Jane's Addiction and Depeche Mode. Their music has also been featured on screen, such as in the film Driven, by Sly Stallone, and TV shows Smallville, Felicity, Las Vegas, Road Rules, Real World and Making the Band. They have been compared to Massive Attack, Lamb, Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, Björk and Radiohead. The band consists today of Rogers on vocals and Juan Masotta on guitar and electronics, Teddy Williams on bass, Emilio Teubal ..boards and Frank Amelan on drums. Rogers has a soothing yet effectively engaging voice complimented by flowing electronic beats and sounds together conglomerated with string and percussion instruments. The songs are often mellow yet electronically complicated and hypnotizing
with their loops and beats. Rogers had a baby in 2008, but she remained motivated, and continued to write and record throughout her pregnancy. Ali Rogers and Juan Masotta have continued to work on their new album, "I've
Been Here the Longest." It will be released in June 2009, and will be accessible through Itunes and the Astraea Records Website. Rogers and Masotta will collaborate with
their new line up to perform new hits and old favorites. The record release concert will occur on June 12th at Crash Mansion in NYC.
