DJ and producer duo Bastelbande built their sound around the curious and charismatic creative landscape which outfit members André and Mr. Matthew have grown up within. Although this is to be expected from a pair who make their music within their home of Hennigsdorf, a suburb in Berlin, where they hone in on their skills of sampling, scratching, singing, rapping, painting and writing the entirety of their outputs, never leaving any stone unturned when creating their packages. Their style which consists of a mix of Trip Hop, Downbeat, Hip Hop, Organic Grooves, Electronica, Jazz, Funk and Soul has gained them a grassroots following and it’s this grassroots following who insisted on a larger body of work. This is where the idea behind their forthcoming LP ‘Off the Beaten Tracks’ on Aviary Bridge Records came from, which is a perfect embodiment of everything they have achieved over their career so far. 
From ‘Colourblind’ through to ‘Hopscotch’, as well as collaborations with the likes of Tom Zips and Isa, there’s a wealth of talent showcased across the LP.
