Hips don’t lie! The truth and the only truth is destined to be wiggled while listening to a tune by Klaus Johann Grobe! If you caught up on their 2014-debut LP “Im sinne der zeit” (released through Trouble In Mind Records) you know what I’m preaching; this Swizz duo know how to put down some seriously infectious alternative grooves!

Their highly unique kosmische blend is built upon a foundation of super-crisp bass-grooves, rocksteady drums and old analogue synthesizers, and sounds equally inspired by psych, kraut-rock and post-punk as of soul, jazz and disco. The exotic vibe is only amplified by the German vocals, which quite possibly commands your brain to initialize a motorik reaction. It is highly unlikely that your body will not obey to the multi-tool/Swizz army-knife that is Klaus Johann Grobe.

Originally released a few years back as a very limited private pressing, this EP marks a tremendously strong debut! There’s not a weak moment among the 6 tracks on this EP, and I simply cannot recommend it enough! The original is a rare and costly affair to add to your collection, so it is luckily being reissued by Salvation Records (UK) as a limited pressing of 500 copies.


“The duo sing exclusively in German, but despite the language barrier, their grooves are infectious and universal.” Pitchfork


“Swiss duo, Klaus Johann Grobe, play a kind of danceable Krautrock informed by early ’80’s New York punk funk pioneers such as ESG……” Shindig Magazine
