Most artist biographies are totally boring. They just consist of PR phrases and they just present facts in a factual and objective way. So it is always refreshing if someone dares to do it differently – the Berlin-based DJ and producer duo Kotelett & Zadak for instance. This is how their biography starts: “Where the two actually originate, nobody knows for sure. Rumors have it that they once had a common love for sprat fishing and point their fateful meeting to somewhere on the North German coast. If you believe the various rumors, Zadak lost his pants in a raid by the Department of Fish and Game, while Kotelett, due to an overdose of moonshine, lost his boating license. Both lost their fishing licenses and, whoops!, there went their livelihood… What was left for them to do but abscond to the interior, a bleary-eyed and shady escape to where no one knew them by name. “From now on ….” one of the two is said to have mumbled into his beard; which one is still not known. And so, control rod was quickly exchanged with controller, stroke side with backspin, and fog horn with fog machine.”
