Sultans Court

    Blues guitar meets Wall of Synth and modulated vocals. Outgrown of the Indie music genre Sultans Court continues this legacy with influences from hip-hop and electronic music. Analog and electronic sounds create dark motives, while the energetic groove of driving percussion invites the audience to dance. While the vocals on the one hand guide the music and on the other hand playfully lose themselves in it, the songs regularly surprise with unexpected twists and turns. In the footsteps of Alt-J, Chet Faker or Glass Animals and in a time of exchangeable pop music, the band convinces with an unmistakable sound. Sultans Court was founded in a rickety Renault Clio on the motorway to Hamburg: So both music producers and founding members Julius and Konstantin got to know each other as riders to MS Dockville Festival. Directly after the festival both settled down in their home studio in Berlin and worked on their sound for over a year. On stage, however, the music is only brought to life with the help of the virtuoso ideas of Leander (drums) and Markus (synths). In the end, the test drive in Grandpa's old Renault decides whether the music will meet his own expectations.
