BOYTRONIC

Nobody can dispute that German cult band Boytronic have a colourful history. Founders Peter Sawatzki and Holger Wobker honed their craft at sex shows in Hamburg’s red light district, Reeperbahn.

And then in the late 1980s, their management claimed ownership of their name and with a new line-up redefined elevator music with a series of covers, including a ludicrously conceived ‘I Will Survive’.

The original band returned after a lengthy hiatus in 2002, by which time Sawatzki had killed himself after getting cancer and Wobker had to be rescued from a Buddhist monastery in Thailand.

Expect hits like ‘You’ and some songs from their new album. And don’t forget to dress in black – it’s compulsory.

Exactly 20 years after his debut album, Regnskabet Time, the Danish rapper is back from a long break. Credited with playing a significant role in the development of Danish rap, he co-founded Die Dumme Dänen in 2005.
