Rave and Romance

DB 171LP DB 171LP

Schlachthofbronx is the Munich-based duo of Benedikt and Jakob, producers and performers of innovative multi-genre club music. In addition to being known as on-point performers on club and festival stages, the guys also built their reputation with production and studio work with and for artists like Snoop Dogg, M.I.A., Major Lazer, Buraka Som Sistema, and Bonde do Rolê. Their tracks get support on BBC radio as well as praise and spins from a wide range of fellow DJs and artists (like Modeselektor, Brodinski, Crookers, Toddla T, Rob da Bank, Diplo, Laidback Luke, DJ Hell, Mr. Oizo, Annie Mac... you name it). In the club they deliver a fast-paced, eclectic mix of styles and genres, reflecting their various influences reaching from dancehall reggae and hip-hop over booty bass to techno, cumbia, and UK bass, to name a few. With two studio albums and countless EPs, singles, and remixes on, for example, Disko B, Mad Decent, Monkeytown Records, Mixpak, and Man Recordings under their belt, they now present their third studio album, Rave and Romance. A varied mix of rump-shaking slow jams and bass-heavy rave tunes, it directly represents the diversity of their unique sound, with appearances from fellow ravers and romantics Nicky da B (USA), Warrior Queen (Jamaica), Bonde do Rolê (Brazil), and candelilla (Germany). Rave and Romance appears in the midst of Schlachthofbronx's ongoing, never-ending worldwide tour, with previous stops including clubs and festivals all over Europe, North American tours both solo and in support of M.I.A., plus detours to places like Russia, South Africa, and more. Schlachthofbronx pride themselves on the diversity of their touring schedule -- they can follow a rave in a small Bavarian town's strip club with a big festival in Mexico, a special one-off show with a brass band at Munich's Oktoberfest, or a performance on a sound system truck during London's Notting Hill Carnival. These guys play clubs, festivals, museums, tents, boats, floats, buses, strip joints, and beer gardens; it doesn't matter where, Schlachthofbronx always start a party. With their Rave and Romance formula and their bag of custom-made tracks and exclusives, Schlachthofbronx will continue to put happy, sweaty smiles on every listener's face. Double LP limited to 300 copies.
