Munich's Schlachthofbronx present their second full-length album, Dirty Dancing. Since their debut album in 2009, Schlachthofbronx started touring almost non-stop: clubs & festivals all over Europe, supporting M.I.A. as well as solo tours in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Be it between Melt, Roskilde, SXSW or Sónar, by now Schlachthofbronx could probably also run pro workshops in travel efficiency. However, all this travelling did not keep them from putting out new tracks on a regular basis. Alone in 2011, four new Schlachthofbronx EPs were released, plus plenty of remixes. Their tracks work as well in Ibiza as they do on the almighty BBC radio. No wonder top DJs can't keep their hands off: Crookers, Toddla T, Rob Da Bank, Diplo, Radioclit/TheVeryBest, Laidback Luke, Mistajam, Mr. Oizo, Annie Mac, you name it. You may call Dirty Dancing booty bass or just "dirty dance music." Influences are ghettotek, juke, UK bass, cumbia, dancehall/reggae, etc. Compared to the debut album, Schlachthofbronx opened up even more to different styles, sometimes even leaning towards techno -- and most obviously got more versatile when it comes to the tempo. Forget about the cliché 128 bpm club tempo dogma -- Dirty Dancing is dance music with heavy bass and the occasional explicit lyrics. In times in which everyone and their mothers put some cumbia in their tracks, pioneers like Schlachthofbronx are already seven steps ahead and experiment in their studio basement to see which other styles could work together -- ukuele bass, ghettotek/booty bomb, dancehall, electro, drum n' bass, surf bounce, moombahton and more. As expected, Schlachthofbronx present a lot of different vocal guests on this album: old friends like Doubla J and Gnucci Banana as well as two Jamaican female artists: to have Warrior Queen voicing "Dickie Riddim" was a great honor as well. Schlachthofbronx met Puppetmastaz and worked out the collaboration "One Hand," and the icing on the cake is the appearance of The King Of Booty Bass, DJ Assault. More on one album is just not possible.
