Schlachthofbronx - Oktoberfest Goes Electronic

Nowadays, Munich is known for 2 things: Oktoberfest and Bass music. Put them together and what do you have...? Schlachthofbronx.

Schlachto-what? Yup, this electronic duo makes music that sounds even crazier than their name looks! Their self-titled full length debut album launched them into tours all over Europe and South Africa in 2009. The album features guest singers from Costa Rica and Mali, joint work with brass bands from Bavaria, rappers from South Africa as well as a ghettotek-collabo with german MC Ron Foto. That's so ¡GLOBAILE! Their live shows include the same variety of eclectic sounds with the duo rockin' everything from Rave, Dancehall, Dubstep, Baile Funk, Bounce, Cumbia, Soca and traditional Bavarian music.

With such multi-culti, bass-heavy flava, it's no surprise that Diplo's Mad Decent label has snatched up Schlachthofbronx and released their latest EP - Nasty Bass.

Check out this video for their song Too High featuring Big Space & Spoek Mathambo, shot at the Oktoberfest in their home town Munich, Germany.

GD & Top - Seoul to Soul

So by now, we all now about K-Pop....that Korean Pop music that has been taking over the world. Well how about K-R&B...?

Yes, leave it to our favorite Korean heartthrobs, GD & Top, to smooth out the K-Pop sound and take it to a more sexy, soulful place...They sing and rap in both English and Korean over some groovy guitar-laced beats, with a sexy female voice coming in at the end, talking in...French! 3 languages in one tune - that's so GLOBAILE!

The last time we featured GD & Top, it was for their catchy collabo with USA's Diplo - Knock Out (listen to that tune on our podcast). Well, once again they have taken a more Western approach, coming out with a tune with a little more soul than Seoul....
