To give you some impressions, I show you the newest work from our Star-Artist “Ninne“. Taken from his new Instrumental Album “Harte Beatz Vol. 2”. He cuts this video by his own and of course the beat, too. Here goes SKC Productions with “Chriztmas“.
You like that beat? Then you will absolutely like our other stuff. The two instrumental Albums, presented by SKC Productions and done by “Ninne” will soon be available again to download. All of the design is made by ourselves.
I will let you guys know.
Greetings from the SKC
Portugal the. Man is a indie-rock band from Alaska, USA. The band founded in 2004 and is still alive.
A few years ago, when i used to hear different kinds of rock music (hardcore, grindcore, indie, nintendcore..), one day a mixtape from Portugal the. Man has come to my attention. The Mixtape: “It’s complicated being a Wizzard” a mixture out of indie-rock, experimental sounds and electronic music, inspired me in many ways. I heard this band intense till 2009. Their albums were very varied. One was more coined by electro, another by 60’s rock and one was in a way like very good pop music. I saw them two times and there were very good, I think one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen in my life. Till 2009 i can proudly recommend all their work to you, honestly, but since 2009 their advancement gone the wrong way (commercial way) and I stopped listening. But after all I still hear their old stuff some times, but I won’t hear their new stuff. Check out Portugal the. Man.
Watch them in HD, better audio Quality, too.
Just don’t know what to say. This music is self-declared.
For those who can understand, listen and enjoy this kind of music will like that post.
Old classical music or new classical music, it’s still unbelievable good and blows your mind.
For this music, please turn up the volume, open your window and close your eyes.

Adolf Noise aka Monaco Schranze aka Swahimi aka Dj Koze aka Stefan Kozella was born and raised 1972 in Flensburg, Germany.
After he moved to Hamburg in the early 90’s he founded his first HipHop group called “Fischmob“.
As time drew on Stefan faced up with electronic music and got more and more famous as Dj. Together with Erobique and Cosmic Dj he started his second project called “International Pony“. Till 2003, Dj Koze released many tracks and albums amongst others on the labels Kompakt, Get Physical or Circus Company. He already got his own record label called “Pampa Records“. I saw him unfortunately only once in 2008 but i hope to see him anytime again.
For me Dj Koze is the best electronic Dj from Germany for the last 20 years. His music belongs from HipHop till Techno and his experimental projects are still excellent and unbeaten. By the way “Koze” -> “Ko(t)ze” is the German word for vomit. Cheers.
Some special Advice!
Two weeks ago I went to an event @ Festsaal Kreuzberg called J.A.W
They are organizing music events and in this way supporting any music&musician that inspires them.
So this event was kind of devoted to the world known musician Gil Scott Heron (R.I.P). The guys from J.A.W brought us Theo Parrish & Sadar Bahar from america.
I know Theo Parrish and it is very special to see him in Berlin. The party was the best i have been to this year in Berlin. Nice crowd, good sound, very very good acts and an unsurpassable atmosphere! I am really happy to know about the J.A.W parties and can proudly recommend them to everybody!

American new school HipHop
Of course, of course
Nothing better than A Tribe Called Quest, Grandmaster Flash,
LL Cool J, Nas, Wu Tang Clan, Guru or Mos Def
but currently the new school HipHop scene will blow your mind. With OFWGKTA, Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa the scene had won some new special talents.
Okay Jay-Z, 50 cent and Lil Wayne still sucks (in my opinion) but for all that these new talents are apart from it.
They open new doors for other artists. And I think they key to get a famous HipHop star is: To smoke as much weed as possible being cool and making your own thing.
Fuck yeah. By the way, OFWGKTA means Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. Taste the flow underneath!

Berlin Underground HipHop 1997-2003
After the commercialization of the Hip Hop movement in America, the Rap & Hip Hop subculture accrues in Germany in the early 80’s.
As in the 90’s the HipHop movement in Germany became popular, Berlin still stayed underground. Anyway Berlin is different from Germany. The scene in Berlin is inspired by “gangsta rap” from America. Soon the battle rap established in Berlin. More and more crews & labels originated, the best-known crews, groups & labels are: Masters of Rap (MOR), Die Sekte, Westberlin Maskulin, Beatfabrik, Royal Bunker, Bassboxxx, Berlin Crime and many more. Is there any more to it?
Yes, the subculture still exists today and it goes on with flows, battleraps, beats, punch lines, crews, graffiti and love to rhyme and rhythm.
For my audience I added a short list of some of the best LP’s & EP’s of the Berlin HipHop culture from 1997 till 2003.
