SVIBES is an electronic R&B duo hailing from different parts of the world - Chris de Luca from Germany and Sanders Bohlke from the southern United States. The language they create together is sultry and elegant. The cadence gritty, yet seductive. The sonic landscape is visual - cinematic soul.
In 2015, de Luca and Bohlke were introduced to each other's music and a mutual interest was piqued. De Luca sent over a track looking for vocal contributions from Bohlke for an upcoming Funkstorung album. The resulting song, "I Can't Love You," then became the third track on the follow-up EP to Funkstorung's 2015 self-titled album.
Bohlke then made his way over to Germany to perform live with the band on a short festival run. During the time between festivals, the two developed a significant writing partnership. Over the next year, the duo continued to add more songs to their ever-growing slate of music. De Luca moved to Los Angeles in 2016 and SVIBES was officially formed. The two enlisted 7-time Grammy award winning engineer Darrell Thorp (Radiohead, Beck, Jay-Z) to mix the project. Bohlke and de Luca are currently in the studio finishing production on their debut album.
