Flashmob Taps Into Berlin's Trippy Nightlife on "Who"

It's like Frommer's, but for clubbing.
June 20, 2014, 6:54pm

Berliners, beware: you're probably going to find this jam cheeky. "Who" is a slow-motion ghetto house cut with a reverberating vocal from Hot Creations alumnus Kevin Knapp that shouts out several famous nightclubs in the German capital—"In the line at Sisyphos," he intones over a gummy bassline and dusty Chicago-indebted drums. "Queueing up at Berghain, queueing up for P Bar time." We wouldn't blame you if you sneered a bit, but a little corn on the cob never stopped us from loving a sick track. Knapp's monotone delivery makes us feel a bit unhinged and uneasy, the way you're supposed feel waiting in line at the Big House. "Who" is the inaugural release for Flashmob Records, the fledgling imprint from the Italian duo of the same name, and it drops June 30. We hope the next record name-drops Homopatik.
