Ratatat – Debaser Slussen, November 7th 2010

Kim Hiorthoy started the evening at a Debaser Slussen that was totally sold out! He made me remember how much I had missed the electro-music. Although this might have been one of the most extreme electro-sets I have witnessed. One short moment of vocals and for the rest everything came out of the electrical instruments he had standing in front of him.

Kim Hiorthoy

There was no MC, he did not use a microphone himself but he was everything but quiet. Jumping and pumping and shaking his head and the rest of his body to the beat was part of the experience for sure.

Want to hear some of the music Kim Hjorthoy produces, check out the Kim Hiorthoy MySpace.

Then it was up to the reason why everybody had bought their tickets… Ratatat!

Before the show I tried to get an idea of what I could expect of the guys and was afraid to not see a lot of live music. But how wrong can I be! They played a lot of different instruments and I totally got why the venue was sold out! Every song was a bang. Every song got played with a lot of energy. Every song got the crowd active and every song got even me moving.

Drugs and Shampi had some cool background videos. With the first one, the director had definitely used something himself and with Shampi it was an ABBA video (why not, we are in Sweden anyway) that got mashed up.

Rarely have seen musicians that can focus on so many things at the same time, Mike Stroud was playing the keys/guitar and many other instruments in one song and gave attention to the crowd and drank some nice drinks and said hi to someone he knew and gave the soundtechnician some instructions and had a lot of fun doing so!
