ZHUT & KAPOTE are part of that new wave of Berlin producer kids that are doing dirty, funk-based house music. Max Graef, Session Victim, Hodini… There is a growing scene of producers that do dance music that is far away from that 90ies techno revival sound that has become kind of a Berlin tourist cliche. These new kids love old jazz vinyl, MPC-productions and old synths. They want a warm, nasty sound that has it’s roots in soul music – not in Ableton Live standard Deep House sound setups.
Kapote already released an EP and some edits on Toy Tonics, while Zhut is part of tech-funk group Black Loops. The boys combine old, rare samples from the 1970ies with their own way of playing live drum machines and their fucked up synthesizers. It’s jazzy, funky house music. Reminding certain records from the french wave like La Funk Mob or Versatile and the music of American maestros like Paul Johnson or Detroit’s Red Planet.
