Kyodai means brothers in Japanese and that‘s a good clue for guessing who‘s behind these guys. The Berlin-based brothers were very prolific during the last years. Known for their machine driven funk and techno influence they have an individual and timeless take on house music whether it‘s soulful, melodic or jacking.
The brothers have been on an extraordinary musical journey and the last two years have seen the duo emerge as one of the leading lights on prestigious house labels. They released on Dirt Crew, Exploited, Suol,Freerange, Pokerflat and Local Talk just to name a few.
Kyodai gained respect from musical heavy weights like Lauren Garnier, Masters At Work, Jimpster, Gilles Peterson or Rainer Trüby.
Berlin duo Kyodai have always exhibited a high degree of what some might term musicality in their electronic workouts. Their current three-track EP “Iyesá” for Exploited sees them step into some of the boldest creative territory of their career, channeling the spirit of African rhythm into their powerful production aesthetic.
