Trip hop embraces jazz, synthie pop meets indie rock: The somber sound of Super700 defies categorization.
The Berlin septette was founded in 2003 by German-Albanian vocalist Ibadet Ramadani and bassist Micheal Haves. They first made a name for themselves with gigs in Berlin clubs, songs for the soundtrack to "Dancing with Myself", and concert tours through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Their 2006 debut album, "Super700", was mixed by The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael and was celebrated by critics, even if it failed to give the band their commercial breakthrough. Now, their second LP is out, and it’s called "Lovebites".
