The music of Kitbuilders can be described as Electro with SciFi-Punkrock-Energy and a grebo edge! What makes it completely unique are the remarkable vocals from Ripley. In the Kitbuilders-cosmos you will also find the Sparks in their Moroderphase, Chris and Cosey, Neu or Devo, although their music is no 80s retro stuff. After a handful of 12" singles and compilation appearances on labels like Electrecord, World Electric, Vertical and Ersatz Audio , "Wake Up" is the debut full length from the Cologne-based duo. The US magazine "XLR8R³ called it "...an excellent hybrid of the past and present³. Alongside American outfits like Adult. and Fischerspooner, Kitbuilders are at the forefront of the worldwide electro revolution. Equal parts Moroder and Liquid Sky, the duo of Benway and Ripley fluctuate between adrenaline-rush bpm 909 beats, fluttering sci-fi arpeggiations and tense, sinister moodiness.
