Donkong, the up and coming bass music artists from Germany gained a lot of international respect and support within their 2 years of existence. Big players like Major Lazer and DJ Shadow played their productions and their songs were released on labels from Los Angeles (Play Me) to Melbourne (Adapted). But Johannes (Cop Dickie) and Thomas (Kosmo) didn't come out of nowhere - they've been working with some of the most successful german singers like Xavier Naidoo and were credited with a platinum record for the music on Casper's "XOXO". Both started as individual bedroom producers 600 km distant from each other, as their taste of electronic music gravitated them.
After joining forces in 2012, they instantly pushed the bounderies. "Jawz" and "Turn It Up" combined Global Bass, Breakbeat and Hip-Hop influences to something incredibly new, they ironically called "Molly Grit" - the bright side of EDM. One of their first gigs on Splash! Festival showed off how energy driven and explosive this combination can be.
Their new EP "Focus" proves once again their talent for songwriting and sound design and is best experienced on a system with big and heavy sub woofers.
Donkong - It's a tribe, born and lost under bare feet, stomping and gasping to big drums. We do Voodoo!
