Performances & DJ Sets W/ Schlachthofbronx ft. Alai K, DJ Tendwa & Just a Band, May 19 2015 @ Tree House Club
Schlachthofbronx is a DJ duo from Munich/Germany who produces and plays innovative multi genre club music. Besides 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, Bonde Do Role, and others. 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 – amongst others.
Their new ten-track release titled Rave And Romance directly represents the diversity of their unique sound between rump shaking slow jams and bass-heavy rave tunes. Fellow ravers and romantics Nicky Da B, Warrior Queen, Bonde Do Role and candelilla got recruited for the release and added the shouts as well as the dirty talk. These guys play clubs, festivals, museums, tents, boats, floats, busses, strip joints and beer tents – it doesn’t matter where, Schlachthofbronx always starts a party. With their Rave And Romance formula – and their bag of custom made tracks and exclusives – Schlachthofbronx will continue to put happy and sweaty smiles upon peoples’ faces.
Supporting acts from Nairobi will be DJ Tendwa, Alai K and Just A Band. This event takes place in the context of the German Week 2015.
