This is fuckin GANGSTA TECHNO!!
Every so often, a group comes along which shakes the entire dance scene from its very roots with a style so unique, and a sound so intoxicating, that it influences scores of imitators, and inspires a new generation of producers. Pleasurekraft is exactly such a group.
The brainchild of Kaveh Soroush and Kalle Ronngardh, Pleasurekraft was born in the summer of 2009. Having had their very first track played by Pete Tong on his Essential Selection, and then doing remixes for Chymera, and John Acquaviva’s Definitive imprint, Pleasurekraft became a new name to keep an eye on.
Fast forward to the spring of 2010, and the year’s biggest smash hit, Pleasurekraft’s ”Tarantula” was released. Being hailed by everyone as the year’s biggest track, the critics and fans are already hailing pleasurekraft as the year’s most original tech house act. On the heels of “Tarantula”, Pleasurekraft are working harder than ever. While dance music trends come and go, those who stick to a singular vision and belief in the music they consistently produce are always left standing when the fads have long gone. Pleasurekraft is exactly such a group.
They will be making their debut appearance in Australia and will be playing alongside Hernan Cattaneo, DJ PP and Evil Nine in Perth for the Big City Nights Festival (27/10/2011 @ Shape Bar). We got up close with Kaveh and spoke to him about what Pleasurekraft is all about and also about their upcoming tour down under.
