On February 17, New York based producer and composer Stephan Kondert is going to release his new SK Invitational album “Golden Crown” via German hip-hop label Kopfhörer Recordings (Groove Attack). It is the third longplayer he created with his big band of 16 of the most talented musicians from Europe. They are featured by 11 exciting rappers, singers and bands from both the US and Europe (f.e. M.O.P., Sadat X, Edo G, Homeboy Sandman, Blak Twang, Ty), merging into a one of a kind mix-up of big band sound, new-era music styles, pure hip-hop, soul, funk and jazz. You can find all information about the release in the new video teaser.
SK Invitational has toured through Europe for 11 years and collaborated with artists like Blumentopf, Phatkat, Buf1, Texta, Blak twang, Ty, Fiva, Skero, Flip, Average, Nazar, Mono & Nikitaman and more. They pleased the crowd on many international festivals and have been nominated for an Amadeus Award. Moving to New York last year gave Stephan Kondert, originally born and raised in Salzburg, Austria, a lot of new impressions he included in producing “Golden Crown”, building up a new unique big band sound teamed up with innovative synthetic beat patterns and some of the best vocalists in both hip-hop and soul music.
