Lorenz Rhode



  • Imagine Rick James dating Chaka Khan, dancing to Daft Punk and Technotronic, making sweet love to a Stevie Wonder ballad, when suddenly a group of German robots and a Yellow Magic Orchestra come rushing into the hotel suite and ... they all go to France.
    Lorenz Rhode loves playing the keys and would do it all day if he could. His style - funk with a particular love for chord progressions - is what’s connecting all the things he’s working on: EP’s on Compost (talkbox classic ‚Back‘), Exploited (single of the month in Mixmag) and Dirt Crew (#1 on Traxsource); Co-writing the Detroit Swindle album ‚High Life‘, collaborating with Purple Disco Machine on several songs (more on the upcoming album). As a live artist he toured the world solo and with DS, Jamie Lidell or PDM, opening for Jamiroquai with the latter. Synth nerd that he is, Lorenz finds great joy working as a sound designer for legendary manufacturer Sequential, and his quirky talkbox styles racked up millions of views on his Daft Punk cover. 
 Since 2016 - for something completely different - he’s musical director of German TV late night ‚ZDF Magazin Royale‘ with 15-piece orchestra RTO Ehrenfeld. Arrangements written for & performed with Lizzo, MGMT, Father John Misty, Woodkid, Rilès and many more. Most recently he and Lars Dales launched their new duo Sound Support with EP’s on Internasjonal & House of Disco, with a ton of new songs due to release soon!
