Kruder & Dorfmeister: The 16 F**king Years Anniversary Session, Were Ya There?

The Austrian downtempo-dub pioneers, Kruder & Dorfmeister, performed at the Best Buy Theater two days ago in their first live New York City appearance in nine years.  Accompanying the two was MC Earl Zinger, who, as described by New York Times‘ Jon Parales, could have been “the Joel Grey of electronica, intoning introductions, singing and dancing around with springing moves.”  Ras MC T Weed also performed, singing with “hints of reggae and Stevie Wonder.”  Video projections by Fritz Fitzke “framed Mr. Kruder Mr Dorfmeister in vertiginous glory, with flashing geometric lines and floating landscapes.”

Through it all, Kruder and Dormeister were “sleekly propulsive as ever.”  Their set blended a vast array of beats, electro synthesizers, and rhythms that exuded a “suave, unchallenging pleasure.”  The show ended with a rewrite of the Beatles’ “Let It Be”, with the lyrics written as “K & D”, instead.  Their current tour is celebrating the 16th anniversary of the label they founded in Vienna, G-Stone Recordings – their brilliant new 2xCD compilation is in stores now, providing some of the label’s greatest hits alongside envelope-pushing new tracks.

Check out the New York Times‘ review of the show: “Old-School Electronica to Trip the Mind, Tickle the Eye and Sway the Body”
