Kinderzimmer Productions – wir sind da wo oben ist

Posted on: August 4, 2007

Hip Hop from Germany Part 2

And another german hip hop record. German hip hop? Kinderzimmer Productions MC Textor makes the statement ” a definition of hip hop is not the subject” (“Eine Definition von Hip Hop ist nicht das Thema”) on this record from 2002. The third longplayer from Kinderzimmer Productions, or the fourth – the real debut record had to be pulped because of some un-authorized samples – is hip hop and is not. The music is clearly hip hop, the tracks are sample monsters, from jazzy to raw. DJ Quasi Modo´s beats are tricky, but not in spite of this you will need your dancing shoes, this beat&sample universum is the reason why.

Kinderzimmer Productions don´t care of the hip hop scene since more than 10 years (the actual record “Asphalt” is from July 2007), the trends, the changing opinions , they just do their own thing and they are one of this tipical phenomenons: their influence is immense, popular artists name them regulary, but the kids don´t know them and they don´t sell that much records. From this point of view they aren´t hip hop, they are a stepson of hip hop.

Maybe it´s cause of their lyrics, this genius lyrics. MC Textor is not just rapping or telling stories, he writes poetry and when he starts with alpha, he ends with omega. They don´t participate in the “who´s da biggest in da game”, they just don´t care about things like that and the lyrics are mirroring this, maybe too much for some narrow-minded guys. Ok, sometimes they do participate, i.e. with “deck das dach ab” – a furios satire featuring Switcheroony, having a voice like a drunken white-trash-guy from a trailer park.

An underestimated record.
