This team of three (or two) are avid proponents of Munich bass – a kitchen-sink mix of bootybass, dubstep, cumbia and Bavarian schranz, among other things. Their first EP, Belly Full of Pills
, was launched by Munich-based imprint, Disko B, in early 2009 as a precursor to the Schlachthof Bronx self-titled debut album, which came out later in the year.
Schlachthof Bronx reputedly formed at an impromptu gathering at a Lidl car-park of the slaughterhouse neighbourhood (hence the name) in Munich, united by a shared love of dirty hybrid of African kuduro, South American cumbia, Caribbean soca, dancehall, Brazilian Baile funk, Cape Verdian funana, American bootybass, and UK dubstep. They now run a regular club night at Rote Sonne, called HypieHypie. Guests have included Amanda Blank, (USA), Radoclit (UK), Niyi (UK), Sweat X (RSA), DJ Manaia (PT), South Rakkas Crew (USA), Congorock (Italy), el Hijo de la Cumbia (ARG), Boy 8Bit or Mumdance (UK).
We Run This
, Schlachthof Bronx’s second EP, was released by British label On the Brink in December 2009.
