Bosse - A new album from the troubadour

Melting Pop - Dancehall act Symbiz

HIT-Clip: Prinz Pi - Im Westen nix Neues
The latest album by Friedrich Kautz aka Prinz Pi went straight to the top of the German charts. "Im Westen Nix Neues" as such became the Berlin rapper’s third no. 1 release in succession.
TIPP-Clip: Madeline Juno - Stupid Girl
Madeline Juno’s online hits such as "Error" had record labels fighting over the young songstress from the Black Forest. She’s since opened for the likes of Ellie Goulding, and now presents her new album: "Salvation".
TIPP-Clip: Jochen Distelmeyer - Video Games
The indie pop songs by his band Blumfeld went down a storm, and have even been analyzed in college literature classes. Frontman Distelmeyer embarked on a solo career after dissolving the group in 2007. His latest album features covers of English-language songs such as "Video Games" by American singer Lana Del Rey.
KULT-Clip: Rammstein - Engel (1997)
"Engel" was the first major hit for German shock rockers Rammstein. The album it was included on, "Sehnsucht", was likewise a big success. It charted in 19 countries and sold over 2 million copies. Rammstein never looked back.
