“Imagine Rick James dating Chaka Khan, dancing to Daft Punk and Technotronic, making sweet love to a Stevie Wonder ballad, when suddenly a group of German robots and a Yellow Magic Orchestra come rushing into the hotel suite and... they all decide to go to France instead”. That’s how Lorenz Rhode describes his sound and it’s pretty spot on. After a fierce funk EP on Compost Records he produced a slew of brilliant cuts for Exploited Records followed by collaborations with soul genius Jamie Lidell, where he released ‘Any Kind Of Pressure’ on Kitsuné Maison, pairing Jamie‘s magnificent voice with manic Hi-NRG rhythms and old school synths.
Lorenz Rhode has also contributed remixes for Yelle (Kitsuné), Moullinex (Gomma), Strip Steve (Boysnoize), Jan Delay (Universal), Cassian (Bang Gang), Ben Mono (Compost), Malente & Dex (Exploited) and the list goes on..
Having recently toured with Jamie Lidell, together they played Sonar Barcelona and countless festivals all around the globe including various US dates and the Pukkelpop Festival, among many others.
