Hello all,

Can any one recommend some good german music???

I know and like Seeed (Aufstehn! great song) and Peter Fox, im looking for preferably reggae / dancehall / hiphop... or anything really if its good.

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

I speak fluent french so if there's anything anyone needs translating id be glad to contribute...

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 ;D )

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?

S-a alăturat: 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. ^^

One great group, that unfortunately broke up a short time ago, are the "Wise Guys". They have really good lyrics that actually also are about a lot of german culture. How come noone has mentioned them until now?"!

Andreas Bourani, Xavier Naidoo, Söhne Mannheims, Sarah Connor (the native language stuff).
You might also like Rosenstolz or Silbermond.
