Is there any good German music that isn't Krautrock or Einstürzende Neubauten?
Alexander von Schlippenbach
Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft
Globe Unity Orchestra
Gottfried Michael Koenig
Johann Sebastian Bach
Motor City Drum Ensemble
to name a few
a large part of the house and techno music that is absolutely worth listening is from germany
also Neue Deutsche Welle is god tier pop music if you understand the lyrics
plus all good classical obviously
add mouse on mars, you'd like them
us rap is obvious garbage, dont even have to name examples.
France has Hocus Pocus, IAM, MC Solaar and Disiz to name a few.
UK has the whole grime thing which is pretty awesome.
Germany is mediocre, I would put Denmark above them mainly because of Suspekt.
if you value influence and innovation just in the slightest, US rap is on the top, indisputable. but especially on the instrumental side it's superior without those merits as well.
where do you come from? i think most of the best german rap is buried under all the gangster pop trash but there is definitely top tier stuff if you dig deeper
>thinking grime is pretty awesome
>but trap is not
>the average German 4chan user is probably too young to remember this
Some German breakcore:
the best electronic/techno album of the decade is from germany
Hello, OP! I'm so happy you asked!
Falkenstein (especially "Die Große Göttin" album)
>Morlockk Dilemma (Necro-like boombap)
>Hiob (album "Drama Konkret")
>Retrogott (laid back jazzy/funky MPC-boombap
>Illoyal (experimental, psychedelic; check out "Das Krankenhaus ist unendlich" [10/10])
>Taktloss & Justus
>Audio88 (88 in this case stands for hiphop, not Heil Hitler)
ps: this is literally the best introduction to german underground hiphop you'll ever get. make use of it!
WARUM HABEN DIE DEUTSCHEN SO EINE HÄSSLICHE SPRACHE?
Why has no one posted ATARI TEENAGE RIOT
pretty good german rap list too.
I'd add, not because I'd say they're essential, but because I like them:
Also we have some alright post-hardcore/punk with
keine zähne im maul aber la polama pfeifen (just released a new album that's pretty dope, too)
but yeah, our biggest scene right now is probably house and techno.
In Extremo is one of my favorite rock bands ever, i don't care how >pleb that might be.
Also, german medieval-themed folk is pretty good listen. Early Corvus Corax still frequents my playlist.
Now come on. Also just because KIZ are mainstream (i.e. Kingzzz in the bizzzz) it doesnt mean they are bad. I am okay with the rest but you should mention Pilskills, Spreepatienten and Funkfüxe if you talk about the underground.
