David and Russell are a London based electronic duo in there twenties. Having met through mutual friends, their love of the same music led to the conception of autoKratz.
There inspirations are evident in flashes of Kraftwerk, Daft Punk and Underworld, but autoKratz pride themselves on creating something unique.
Their debut release, 'ReaKtor' is an electro monster dominated by a vigorous hook with added glitches, bleeps and pulsating melodies. David autoKratz describes the track as being inspired by the films '12 Monkeys' and 'La Jetée': "It's a song that creates a vivid picture in your mind, of panic and confusion," Russell adds "and creating imagery is what autoKratz is about, making you think. And dance".
·The other side of the record is taken up by the Daft Punk-esque bleepy stomper 'It's On', with a compulsive vocal hook over a fat glitch funk backbeat that typifies the fullness of the AutoKratz sound.
And now that AutoKratz have signed to Kitsuné for their debut album, it looks like this could be the start of something special.
