Sweet sounds from the "Schäl Sick"
The wrong side of the Rhine. Since 1997 KARAOKE KALK named after the proletarian Cologne suburbia of Kalk has been releasing wonderful electronic sound beyond the clichés. Label boss Thorsten Lütz likes to sit on the fence, creating his own niche for music next to the competing camps of post glitch (A-Musik, Mouse On Mars and Sonig) and minimal techno (the Kompakt people, you name them) who have been dominating the electronic music scene in Cologne like it seems for ages. Since 2005 KARAOKE KALK is operating from Berlin.
