DJ Kicks: Kruder & Dorfmeister cover

The Kruder & Dorfmeister releases DJ-Kicks: Kruder & Dorfmeister (!K7, 1996) and The K&D Sessions (!K7, 1998) are considered pioneering in electronic music. The sound that was formulated became known as downtempo, showing that electronic music need not be confined to cold sounds and metallic beats but could embody sensuality and a deep soulfulness. Both releases have been global bestsellers, with K&D Sessions having sold more than one million copies worldwide and being considered one of the most influential albums of the 1990s.[1]

In parallel to his partnership with Dorfmeister, Peter Kruder has also followed his solo projects. In 1999, Kruder released his highly acclaimed debut album Peace Orchestra, combining soul, hip hop, jazz and dub music. He also remixed numerous artists including Bebel Gilberto, Fauna Flash and more. With Fauna Flash – Munich DJs and producers Christian Prommer and Roland Appel – Kruder kicked off the Voom:Voom project in 2001, which focused on a new interpretation of the vast legacy of Detroit techno and deep house.[2]

Throughout the last decade, Peter Kruder produced various artists, such as Marsmobil, Urbs, Christian Prommer's Drumlesson as well as DJ Hell's highly acclaimed Teufelswerk album. Additionally, he has released various singles under his own name on labels such as International DeeJay Gigolo Records, Macro, 2DIY4 and the Compost Black Label.

2010 saw the 16th anniversary of Kruder & Dorfmeister and G-Stone which resulted in the Sixteen F**kin Years of G-Stone Recordings compilation and the development of the K&D Sessions Live show with Richard Dorfmeister. The show included visuals by long time G-Stone VJ collaborator Fritz Fitzke and MC performances by Earl Zinger and MC Ras T-Weed. With performances at The Big Chill, Berlin Festival and numerous other high profile festivals, the K&D Sessions Live show became an instant success and a world tour ensued.[3]
