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 self-titled full length
debut-album (on Disko B) they toured all over Europe and even represented their airhorn-heavy sound in
South Africa in 2009. The album features guest singers from Costa Rica and Mali, joint work with brass bands from Bavaria, rappers from South Africa as well as a ghettotek-collabo with German MC Ron Foto. Berlin based tropicalbasslabel Man Recordings released two EPs, including their smasher "Ayoba“ with South African 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) 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's takes on Rave, Dancehall, Dubstep, Baile Funk, Bounce, Cumbia, soca and Traditional bavarian music – always custommade and targeted on maximal dancefloor impact.
After a busy year's 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 (like their upcoming EP on Diplo's Mad Decent) fuelling their constant touring through all clubs that are ready for some serious bass, sirens and airhorns -and which can spell their name correctly!
