Klaus Johann Grobe with Special Guests
Drop-Off Productions proudly presents the insinuating groove music of Swiss duo, Klaus Johann Grobe. Incorporating the slinky, jazz-fusion-laced sounds populating late night clubs and braiding them together with the band’s own blend of mutant electro-funk, Klaus Johann Grobe have been at it since 2012, crafting organically-created kosmische tunes that put a fresh spin on the groundbreaking sounds that came out of West Germany in the 1970s – an era that saw a canon of seminal releases by Can, Cluster and Faust amongst others. The duo released their third album “Du Bist So Symmetrisch” (and third on Chicago-based Trouble In Mind) in 2018, which saw the Klaus Johann Grobe continue to defy description & blur the lines between electronic pop, dance music, synthesis & kosmische. Klaus Johann Grobe sing exclusively in German, but despite the language barrier, their grooves are infectious and universal. Driven by an organic, metronomic beat aligned with synth, chant-like vocals, and a monstrous funky bass, the music aims towards a certain kind of hypnosis, particularly as the sleeping pill echo-heavy vocals cycle over the locked hits the pair throw down. The latest material from Klaus Johann Grobe sees the band foreground their love of disco, house, boogie, and other U.S. dance subgenres that emerged after Roland introduced the TR-808 – relentless, crisp, and irresistible bass lines and post-Krautrock drumming act as an armature and an engine. Atop those grooves woozy organ and synthesizer patterns deliver striking counterpoint. Klaus Johann Grobe has toured extensively since 2014, highlights being supporting tours with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Growlers and Temples, and they have toured and played festivals in the U.S.A., U.K., Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, France and Spain. Additional support to be announced.
