Aufschlag

Some more Berlin weirdness from the WMF camp (check here).
Mitte Karaoke are a crazy duo, experimenting somewhere in the middle between complex electro, IDM-ish programming and pop sensibilities. Yet just when you'd think you'd listen to (advanced) vocal poptronica, acidic turns with an extra jazzy spirit counter the feeling and funk-tight drums point the beat all the way back to the dancefloor.
They released in WMF and some collaborations in Inzest. Associated with the whole Berlin scene of TokTok, BPitch Control, etc. Not really well-known outside their network I suppose, still they did a lot of good work. The only reason I can think they didn't succeed commercially was that... well, they were too weird.
