Kyodai means ‘brothers’ in Japanese, and that’s exactly what these two DJ’s are. Two German brothers that gained respect from musical heavyweights like Masters At Work, Jimpster, Gilles Peterson and Rainer Trüby. Regularly releasing under a variety of different names for labels such as Compost, Odori, Om and Lovemonk. Their ‘Breaking EP’ was supported by top colleagues and reached the top list on Gilles Peterson’s ‘An All Winners Show‘. Kerri Chandler liked it so much he decided to include it in his Resident Advisor podcast. Next to that, the Cielo Compilation on Nervous also picked up on Kyodai’s EP, resulting in many requests for remixes and productions.
They’re on quite a roll these two, so I was happy to see them play last Saturday at the ADE Exploited label night @ De Balie. They were rocking the crowd for sixty minutes straight with everything they had, blasting their unforgiving bass drives and bumping grooves through the venue. We’re happy to bring you a fresh mixtape by these young bloods, brewed with musical and brotherly love.
