Munich isn’t exactly known as a hotbed for global bass sounds, but if upstart trio Schlachthofbronx has its way, that reputation may be due for an update. “Schlachthof” is German for “slaughterhouse,” which is oddly appropriate because these boys spend the bulk of their debut album slicing up beats from the far corners of the globe—Angolan kuduro, Brazilian baile funk, Caribbean soca, Jamaican dancehall, and Cape Verdean funana are all represented, as are dubstep, Balkan brass, and even the traditional sounds of their native Bavaria. High-gloss but always loyal to the low end, Schlachthofbronx’s music distills these disparate sounds into a speedy and infectiously hyperactive brew of next-level party music. A thrilling debut.
