Kill Frenzy [Dirtybird/relief records/BE]
elsewhere are proud to welcome back Kill Frenzy to the squares.
Belgian born and Berlin based producer Seba, better known as Kill Frenzy, has an affinity for crude, lewd, deep and dark vibrations. As a teenager, he acquired a distinct taste for house and techno from the greats: Jeff Mills, Green Velvet, DJ Godfather, David Clarke, DJ Slugo, & DJ Funk. These kingpins would occasionally drop filthy jacking ghetto records into their sets and the young impressionable producer fell in love with this sound. This booty based vibe went on to lay the foundation for Kill Frenzy’s initial releases on Ghetto Test (a subsidiary of the infamous Dust Traxx Records) and Juke Trax (DJ Godfather’s Ghetto Tech label). His rapid-fire juke joints, clocking around 160 BPM, were pure youthful adrenaline.
In 2012, Kill Frenzy signed to Claude VonStroke’s San Francisco based label Dirtybird with his most well known release thus far, “Make That Booty Clap.” This massive record infected DJs as diverse as Soul Clap, Jamie Jones and Skrillex—the latter of whom helped turn this signature tune into a festival anthem. Kill Frenzy went on to release several more records on Dirtybird and became an important element in the very tight knit crew.
Taylr Swft, Kill Frenzy’s debut album, out on dirtybird, had Label boss Claude VonStroke saying:
“I’m almost sad to start sharing the new Kill Frenzy album with everyone else because it has been my secret weapon all summer. At one point I was playing seven tracks from the album in the same set – it was almost embarrassing. I’m very fickle about choosing what I play and this album is amazing.”
