Munich is more then Oktoberfest and – musically speakin – “Giorgio Moroder” Disco music. Few people know that the capital of Bavaria is not only a hot spot for beer but also for BASS music. Over the last few years the Munich scene development was quite healthy, with the two guys from Schlachthofbronx getting the most exposure, playing raves with the big names of the Global Bass scene, like Buraka Som Sistema, Major Lazer, etc…
After an earlier blog buzz and due to the great media feedback on the launch of their selftitled full length debut-album (on Disko B) they toured all over Europe and even represented their airhorn-heavy sound in Southafrica in 2009. The album features guest singers from Costa Rica and Mali, joint work with brassbands from Bavaria, rappers from Southafrica as well as a ghettotek-collabo with german MC Ron Foto.
A lil after that Berlin based tropicalbasslabel Man Recordings released two Schlachthofbronx EPs, including their smasher „Ayoba“ with Southafrican superstar-MC Spoek Mathambo and new swedish riot grrrl Gnucci Banana on vocal duties in 2010. With their album and the EPs (as well as countless hi-profile remixes, see list below) under their belt they played almost all important festivals across Europe – like Lowlands, Roskilde, Eurokennes, Frequency, Dour or Melt. They left crowd after crowd with happy sweaty smiles after a powerpack of schlachthofbronx´ takes on Rave, Dancehall, Dubstep, Baile Funk, Bounce, Cumbia, soca and Traditional bavarian music – always custommade and targeted on maximal dancefloor impact (See live video link below).
After a busy years end of 2010, including being asked to support grammy/oscar-nominated pop princess M.I.A. on her Eurotour the guys from Schlachthofbronx are set to go even bigger in 2011, with strong new releases fuelling their constant touring through all clubs that are ready for some serious bass, sirens n airhorns -and which can spell their name correctly!
