The Sick Girls hail from Berlin, but you won’t find them playing house or techno. They’re one of the few acts in the city representing the current wave of grime/Baltimore/bass sounds. The girls started out organising and booking parties for many years for two of Berlin’s most famous clubs Tresor & WMF, and one night back in 2004 decided to play together for fun, instantly discovering that they shared the same, quite unusual taste of music considering their “oh-so techno” surroundings. They have a real knack for mashing up, re-editing & remixing whatever track or whatever style in whatever order they feel. If you have a good rummage through their record box you’ll find all sorts of grime, baile funk, Baltimore, hip-hop, crunk, dancehall, dubstep, electro and every other edgy genre in between from around the globe.
