Sixteen F**king Years of G-Stone Recordings, Kruder & Dorfmeister at Nokia Theatre (NYC) on October 12th

On Tuesday October 12th at Nokia Theatre Times Square, Kruder & Dorfmeister will return for their first NYC show in 9 years. The 16 F**king Years Anniversary Session will feature MC Earl Zinger & Ras MC T- Weed with visuals by Fritz Fitzke. More details on the NYC show here. They’re also celebrating their record label anniversary with a new compilation, to be released in October 2010:

Sixteen F**king Years Of G-Stone Recordings gathers the complete artist roster of G-Stone and specialists for every kind of beat: turntable masters Urbs and DJ DSL bring hip-hop and comedy to the table while the productions of Peter Kruder, Rodney Hunter and Megablast & Makossa contain every nuance of dance beats from techno and house to cosmic funk, not to mention an impressive mastery of all the dance-floor-exotica from Africa, Brazil and the rest of Latin America.

The G-Stone range is rounded off by Stereotype and d.kay presenting the post drum & bass interfaces of digi-technology, dubstep and cut-up riddims as well as the glitch-wonk-whatever present. Sugar B gets all wacky, Marsmobil sound Air-esk and Richard Dorfmeister & Rupert Huber‘s Tosca is meditative and experimental all at the same time.
