Following the inauguration of Riverside Studios in 2012, Berlin-based duo, Boot Slap, have brought an alternative yet refreshing element to underground house music. Their combination of vocals and percussion in live sets and productive capabilities has made us very excited to welcome Christian Witt and Takis Kouretsidis to VIVa MUSiC, with the ever in form Matthew Benjamin turning in a remix under his Just Be moniker to complete the package.
“We approached these tracks with a New York State of mind, taking influence from the 90’s NYC underground house sound that dominated the city during this time. The sound of Twilo, The Sound Factory and Limelight. They are deep, chugging, trippy tracks, which with Steve’s legacy in that sound, we thought he’d love. Of course we added our Boot Slap Berlin 2016 flavours too, and we are really happy with them. They are the kind of tracks you can ‘Get Lost’ to on the dance floor.” – Boot Slap
Since forming in 2012 Boot Slap have gone on to feature on labels including Exploited, Kling Klong, Rebellion, Dessous, and Kindisch, but the studio is only one side of what Boot Slap is about. Their live show is a culmination of their individual talents which sees Christian DJing while Takis layers percussion and vocals on top to create a versatile and original performance. Garnering support from the likes of Ellen Allien, Damian Lazarus, Alex Niggemann, Martin Landsky, Martin Eyerer, and more recently Pete Tong when Steve Lawler played Get Lost in his most recent Essential Mix, it’s safe to say that Boot Slap are ones to watch.
