El Freakadell is the new project founded by Enzo Elia (Baleraric Gabba Sound System) and Roskow Kretschmann (X-Jazzanova, Sygaire, Kosma, Mudegg). Due to their musical background those two guys from Berlin do what they do best: trademark quality music with a touch of disco, boogie, garage, loft classics, house & techno. The orginal disco version „I Got You“, rings in with the traditional disco percussions in combination with above shake ́n hi-hats, and the appearance of the ingenuous strings and an outstanding soul voice. The house version combines a rubber roll deep house chord with a laid back atmosphere.
Enzo Elia – born in Italy – never was a huge fan of football. When all the other kids were kicking the ball in a back alley he developed a certain addiction for 12“. So he spent most of his time jumping between record stores and his turntables always chasing the latest Italo Disco and Motown rhythms. In 2004 he began to produce his own tracks and since his underground hit „Touch“ on Hell Yeah (which was well respected by Carl Cox, Kenny Larkin, Osunlade, Dj Hell and Sasse) productions for Lion1 and Be As One and remixes for Roland Clark, Oliver Koletzky and Umek were following. Recently Enzo Elia released another fine 12inch on Hell Yeah called „September Scary EP“.
In 1983 for Roskow everything was about breakdance and legendary radio dj Barry Graves, who had a big musical impact on him. Inspired by the big hip hop wave which flooded Europe back then he started to write rap lyrics and to produce Hip Hop music. In early 1989 he brought out the 1st german Rap Record with english lyrics under Rock Da Most. These early experiences led to the founding of Hip Hop record-label Juiceful Records in 1992. An even bigger impact on his career as a DJ and producer was his time at the Delicious Doughnuts Club in Berlin. Infected by their mixture of old and new music he founded a trip hop fusion project Kosma. After producing the first Delicious Doughnuts Compilation Vol.1 he formed with 5 other guys, that he met at this club, the project Jazzanova, that he left again in 2010. In 2005 Roskow started under his old graffiti alter ego Sygaire releasing inspiring clubmusic. Sygaire puts out a mixture of boogie, modern soul, electro, hip hop, soul, funk, afro, cuban, caribbean, for example on Phil Darimont ́s Label Room With A View („MONO:POLY EP“) or on OM Records „The Latest“.
Recently Roskow founded another moniker called Mudegg with his mate Tom and also the record-label Black Pearl Records, so better check the V.A. EP „Disco in Distress Part 1“ (Amplified / Clone).
