Imagine Rick James dating Chaka Khan, dancing to Daft Punk and Technotronic, making sweet love to a Stevie Wonder ballad, when suddenly a group of German robots and a Yellow Magic Orchestra come rushing into the hotel suite and … they all decide to go to France instead. Like that.
After a fierce funk EP on Compost Records he produced a slew of brilliant cuts for the excellent Exploited Records, including „Motor Cortex (single of the month in Mixmag), „Something Hot, which got love from Top-DJs as A-Trak, Sinden, DJ Mehdi, Aeroplane, Hudson Mohawke, Breakbot, and „Superficial Robots which came with a remix courtesy of Jimmy Edgar. Together with soul genius Jamie Lidell he released „Any Kind Of Pressure on Kitsuné Maison, pairing Jamie’s magnificient voice with manic Hi-NRG rhythms and old school synths.
His music is equally at home at erm, home, or on the dancefloor, and has both a little something for the head and something for the feet and hips. The man got funk!
Lorenz Rhode has contributed remixes for Jamie Lidell (Warp), Yelle (Kitsuné), Strip Steve (Boysnoize), Cassian (Bang Gang), Moullinex (Gomma), …
2013 saw him touring with Warp’s Jamie Lidell, together they played Sonar Barcelona and countless festivals all around the globe. And recently he joined Dutch house masters Detroit Swindle for their new live show, which they brought to the USA in march 2016 and will play at Pukkelpop festival 2016.
