MB graduate with BossHoss at number 1 in the charts

07. November 2018

With their album "Black Is Beautiful" (Universal), released at the end of October, The BossHoss conquer number 1 of the official German album charts. The album was produced by Sascha Vollmer aka Hoss Power together with Jules Kalmbacher, graduate of the music business course at the Popakademie.

Jules Kalmbacher is one of the most successful producers and songwriters in Germany. Although he studied the business bachelor at the Popakademie, he decided to pursue a career as a creative artist. He works with acts like Imagine Dragons, Xavier Naidoo, Mark Forster, Joris and Cro and is also successful as a film composer. Many of his productions have been awarded Gold and Platinum Awards. Born in the Odenwald region of Germany, he has his studio in Mannheim and is therefore also an important factor in the music city of Mannheim.

For the new album of The BossHoss the band and Kalmbacher wanted to take the next step and develop the sound a bit further without losing the classic BossHoss feeling. Regarding the successful chart entry, Kalmbacher says: "We are very happy about the number 1, especially since we had one of the biggest (and hottest) bands, The Toten Hosen, as a competitor. This shows how much The BossHoss has built up a solid and loyal fan base over the years. Thanx!"

Currently Kalmbacher is host of the YouTube show "Hookline", which is produced by funk (ARD/ZDF). In it he explains what is behind the melodies of well-known songs and interprets them in a completely new way. There are new episodes every Sunday and Thursday on YouTube and
