kœnig delivers a blend of drumming, bass-synthesizers, noise, choirs and Dada recitatives. A sensational showcase of flexible time-structures, with a particular emphasis on expressive micro-rhythm, within its own repeating patterns, is kœnig’s musical fingerprint. Kœnig (Lukas König) melds Hip Hop with Techno, seamlessly. With his new EP “kœnig” Lukas König embraces his soft spot for Hip-hop without inhibition, nor restraint. Lyrical furor, rough grooves and murderous synthesizer sounds drive the songs. Occasionally very out there, it nevertheless rouses, captivates and infects.
