Baloise Session — Die Fantastischen Vier / Steff la Cheffe
Hip-hop is essentially a party culture that originally danced its way from city streets into the charts of the world. This was also the route taken by Die Fantastischen Vier and Steff la Cheffe.
When Die Fantastischen Vier, often shortened to FANTA 4, started up at the end of the 1980s, hip-hop was regarded by many as a passing phenomenon. Nowadays, rap is 50 years old and the most successful form of pop music in the world. FANTA 4 are pioneers of the German-language variant of this art of spoken, rhythmic wordplay: street-smart but also in its intellectual prime, quick-witted and rhythmically strong. They have continually developed their flow and tonality over 35 years, but it’s also the content that counts. And that’s what the Stuttgart guys still deliver, explosive and right on the mark.
The same is true for Steff la Cheffe. She plumbs and exhausts the possibilities of Bernese German, stretches and bends the words to a danceable beat. Breathtaking!
