Kabale und Liebe is exemplary of a new school generation, that studied electronic music and production techniques since early childhood, reaching musical adolescence in their teens. At the tender age of twelve, Kabale Und Liebe already dreamed of being a professional DJ, and during his teens, he played frequently at clubs across the Netherlands. When he debuted as a producer at age twenty-three, he already had the experience, the record Collection, and a musical taste of a seasoned jock.
Only a year after his first releases on Meerestief and Archipel, Kabale und Liebe had his first big hit with Mumbling Yeah. It shot up the charts in 2007. Resident Advisor even voted Mumbling Yeah track of the year. Since 2007 Kabale und Liebe has found himself amidst a whirlwind of international media attention, festival bookings and remix requests. Signed to Remote Area and 100 % Pure, he became the bright new star of Amsterdam’s thriving New School scene.
To further express their musical vision, Kabale und Liebe and fellow-New Schooler Lauhaus decided to set up Soweso. The label is meant to cater for upcoming artists in the rapidly growing house-techno crossover scene. Local talents like Makam and Tom Ruijg as well as Ali Nasser and Dj W!ld are already signed.
