"A motorbike race between Radiohead, Clark and Squarepusher", that's how the critically acclaimed duo KNALPOT often gets described. With electro, dub, post-rock, ambient and jazz as its main pillars, KNALPOT's sound always remains an utterly hybrid mix of many genres. In concerts they keep reinterpreting their compositions with their very own and virtuoso way of multitasking between bass, guitar, casios, drums and big amounts of analogue electronics, creating sonic whirlwinds that alternate with whispery-soft sections. The austrian/french/german duo operates from their home-base Amsterdam and has reached the status of one the Netherlands most exciting live-bands since the release of their debut-release Serious Outtakes. KNALPOT has played on festivals like SKIF St. Petersburg, NuMusic and 12Points Stavanger, NorthSeaJazz Rotterdam, Exit Novi Sad, Lowlands Biddinghuizen, La Fabrika Sao Paulo and ARCO Festival Madrid.
