Review: Passing fashions for jerky post-punk and effervescent dance-pop have elevated this confusingly monikered outfit to hot topic status over the years, but !!! have maintained their own identity throughout. Tapping into a lineage of New York party music that touches on Ze records and Studio 54 whilst also embuing their sound with a punk rock vim and vigour straight from CBGBs, 'Shake The Shudder' might be the most timeless collection of suss, sway and swagger these freaks have put together in their 21 (!) years of filling dancefloors. Chk (chk chk) it out.

Review: The song "Lautlos" has a very special flair. DelaDap have written and recorded it in cooperation with the Berlin cult band 17 Hippies. Singer Kiki Sauer's very own style of mixing French, English and German text fragments mixed with the sound of DelaDap did create a strong feeling of multi-culture somewhere between chanson, Balkan sound and jazz. The 17 Hippies, who got known to a broader public especially with their soundtrack for Andreas Dresen's Movie "Halbe Treppe", was founded in 1995. Actually they wouldn't call it "founded", it was more an open come-together of several musicians from totally different backgrounds just to do some acoustic music for their own pleasure. The French press came up with the wording "Berlin Style" which is know synonymous for the 17 Hippie's mixture of eastern European melodies and rhythms with French chanson and American folk. Beside the original album version in radio length and a new DelaDap own remix, the new DelaDap maxi-CD also contains a remix from Vienna's rising Balkan expert [Dunkelbunt] and one from house specialist Jeremiah! As a special bonus it also comes with the highly demanded long-version of Noha's "Goldregen" mix.
