ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Es sind die Ideen und Themen, die fehlen - anstatt großen Reden, will ich Raps, die vom Leben erzählen! (...)>Beatdiggers - steht für jedes Mal 'nen andern Style; lehn dich zurück und lass die gottverdammte Rätselei!<<

The project "Beatdiggers" started around 1999 when the three founders ..Marius .. (drums, producing, recording, arrangement), ..Matthias Masnick.. aka ..High Jacker.. (raps) und ..Niels Hillner.. (bass, arrangement) began to jam their own Hip Hop songs. They weren't quite content with the current Hip Hop from Berlin that consisted of stupid, aggressive, infantile and repetitive lyrics and the immusical, primitive repetitive beats.

High Jacker's authentic, emotional style rather resembled the more intellectual lyrics by (e.g.) Die Fantastischen Vier, Blumentopf or Dendemann. Around 2003 - when the necessary equipment and know-how was available - Marius started to produce his own organic abstract Hip Hop beats and record Matthias' raps. The beats clearly showed funk and nu jazz influences and therefor differed from many other hip hop productions from Berlin. Shortly after the first semi-professional recordings, two other MCs joined Beatdiggers: ..Sven Müller.. aka ..Sen.. and ..Fabian Blanik.. aka ..Der Blanik... By and by the Beatdiggers crew turned out to be rather a community of musicians and friends than a common Hip Hop crew.

Around spring 2005 the first Beatdiggers studio album ....Tagtraum.... was complete. All of the musicians (guitarists, piano players, bass players) recorded individually in Marius' increasing home studio, hence it was only a matter of time when a live band would be established. In October 2005 the instrumentation for the live band was complete. Rehearsals started in November 2005. On the one hand we played some of Marius' beats and transcribed them into versions suitable to be played by a live band. On the other hand we also wrote our own grooves; every instrumentalist took part in that writing process. We still realize our new live tracks in both ways. The live band sound is different from the studio songs: It has much more rock and Jazz influences. ..Boris.. represents the rock part while ..Robert Baum.. and ..Ortli.. bring in the Jazz. Together with ..Marius.. and ..Chrille.. (the DJ) as well as the MCs an interesting musical fusion emerges. It could be described as "Alternative Hip Hop Jazz Funk Rock". But actually we don't want to be (musically) categorized: Our music is much too versatile.
