These guys were mainstays on Palms Out during the blog’s heyday, and I gigged with them a few times when I was living in Copenhagen in the late aughts. Pretty sure I was involved in recording something or other with them at the old Yo Fok studios (where I lived in the attic, shout out my old pal Åsmund/Copyflex for that ridiculous hookup, notwithstanding the pneumoniatic mold). But my memories of those years are disturbingly blurry.
From their base in Munich, Schlachthofbronx were always cranking out that particular German take on global bass music. A touch of Berlin techno, a touch of dancehall, a touch of Modeselektory-glitch hop — never content with fitting squarely in any of those categories.
I was so pleased to discover they’re still doing their thing, and they have a new record out: More Rave and Romance. The album features some legendary vocalists, including Flowdan, Warrior Queen, Kbh’s own Lady Smita (big up), and even a posthumous feature from the late Nicky Da B, among others. As strong as the vocal showings are on the album, I think my pick of the litter is an instrumental track, “Cruise.”
I’ve selected a few for you below, but grab the album on bandcamp, or stream wherever you do that sort of thing.
Schlachthofbronx – “Tempting ft. Warrior Queen
Schlachthofbronx – “Come In” ft. Lady Smita
