Beatport says of Pleasurekraft that they ‘came out of nowhere.’ I concur: Tarantula smashed into the conscious of every DJ in the land at the tail end of 2009, then all of a sudden they’ve established a monthly mix, a tour, a beautifully crafted website, and they’ve put their name to the absolute creme de la creme of the remixes out there at the moment, even taking on the mighty Green Velvet‘s La La Land. There’s even a record label Kraftek in the pipeline. And why not; they’ve proved their ability to turn everything they touch into a tech-house smash, without sounding samey. Their success comes from a pretty disciplined work ethic, sustained across oceans from Kaveh Soroush’s base in Miami to Kalle Ronngardh’s in Stockholm (in fact, they’ve only ever spent a few weeks in each other’s ‘flesh’ company, as it were).
The name comes from the TV show Dexter, and the sound comes from a Steinberg voicemachine, which is likely to feature in more forthcoming productions as they hone a recognisable sound. They’ve got loads of tracks finished and scheduled for 2011, so no doubt we’ll be hearing a lot more of them.
