Hello all,

Can any one recommend some good german music???

Thanks very much, and thanks for all the translations...

If you like dance/hip-hop, try Jan Delay [Mercedes Dance (2007) or Wir Kinder von Bahnhof Soul (2009)].

If you like Urban, Culcha Candela is the way to go [Culcha Candela (2007) or Schöne Neue Welt (2009)].

Marquess is a German group that sings primarily in Spanish: I love their Frenetica CD (2007).

That's for starters....let me know if you want other suggestions.

Matching your style, I like Sabrina Setlur and the silly Yvonne Catterfeld, who is lightly influenced by R'n'B Regular smile

ROFL, I remember Sabrina Setlur with these Rödelheim boys...("Schwester S"),
Catterfeld I know only as an actress up to now, might be interesting to hear her sing ;-)

Well, what to recommend you: Fettes Brot, Fanta4, H-Blockx (have to check the spelling),
Hans Söllner (the anarchic Bavarian Rastaman)

Try Marteria (or Marsimoto). He is a rapper from Rostock/Berlin and really good, especially if you understand the lyrics

Oh Well, I quite like Tim Bendzko but that's pop music. You could try Jennifer Rostock or maybe Laserkraft 3D. Then Casper, he's very good =)

Try Blumio! I really adore him because of his witty and funny lyrics.

Other great artists are: Clueso, Ryo, Max Herre and of course Casper and Marteria.

These are mainly pop, but they're pretty good. I can post more if you would like.

I love Fertig, Los!, and they were actually one of the reasons i started learning German. They have 2 albums out as of now, and each is different, If you want a more laternative sound, go with their first one, which is "das Herz ist eim Sammler", (I dont know what that means, i only started learning german a few months ago, and verty slowly at that) but if youlike more of a pop-rock sound like me, go with their second, which is "Plaene fuer die Zukunft" (sorry, no Umlauts on this keyboard Acute )

(if you’re soooo 90s and buying a CD, lol).

I hope you mean that ironically. At least in the less mainstreamy music scenes people still normally buy CDs. I'd never pay for just the MP3s (except a band only sells their music digitally, and even then...).
I'd maybe call it 90s to buy vinyl btw, even though I can understand all these people that still do.

I like Philipp Poisel's music! Is there more artists like this one in german music scene?

Beigetreten: 01.10.2011


Well, thats a thing I cant really say..
There are many artists who sing songs like he does, with the same meaning etc. but everyone's unique I think!

I would say "Bakkushan" (with songs like ,Nur die Nacht' is a bit like Philipp, or bands like Jupiter Jones, Wir sind Helden.. Wink smile

Ich mag deine Auswahl an Bands..^^ Grad Ignis Fatuu z.B. ^^
