Cold-Boy-Klan take their inspiration from influence of alternative electronic music and indie hip-hop and mixed them on the basis of country music heritage, with intension to deconstruct and refresh this platform to a form, which is more sophisticated and futuristic. However, that’s also a challenge to create a brand new musical formula, and to settle up with forgotten past in our subconsciousness we’d rather run from, although it’s absolutely needed for pop-music evolution. Country or folk music, even blues, as genres proved by history, formed in North America as simple plain songs with romantic feeling, are integrated here into abstract hip-hop background. Symbolic lyrics, although it doesn’t lack sharpness, might be explained in many ways, or at least it’s ambiguous. Johnny Cash, Tom Waits and Cpt.Beefheart are godfathers of this project, as well as their blood brothers Mike Patton, Buck 65, Michael Gira or Tricky Kid. Country hip-hop, folktronica, electro-blues or something completely different?
The crew is piloted by: producer Petr Mareš, well-known from Czech experimental electronic as prof.neutrino, visual artist and author of lyrics Jaroslav Schejbal aka K1 and Jan Karel aka Carlos, drum-player and sound-technical supervisor of all project. There are also additional musicians Ondřej Mráz (bass).
