Watch WhoMadeWho’s legendary live performance from this year’s Mayan Warrior art-car at Burning Man.
Almost two-decades into their extravagant career, the energy, fun, and celebratory nature of WhoMadeWho has expanded with time. Since getting together a few years after the turn of the new century, the Danish trio have come to mature beyond their dance-rock moniker from which they were originally associated with, to become something yet more complete, experimental, and mature. While still maintaining their wild, colorful and flamboyant nature, WhoMadeWho have evolved to a point where their energy is channeled through their industrious and manic wild shows, which stand strongly connected to their finely composed, harmonic and singular records. From career defining performances at Roskilde, sell-out shows worldwide, in-demand hybrid-DJ performances, hit records, and standout remixes, WhoMadeWho continue to flourish.
To date, the Danish trio of Tomas Barfod, Tomas Høffding, and Jeppe Kjellberg have released six studio albums on such prolific labels as Gomma and Kompakt, as well as a mix LP on Get Physical Music, along with a new forthcoming mix compilation for renowned Berlin-based institution, Watergate. Their most recent LP, ‘Through the Walls’ is emblematic of the band’s current form; a record that’s equal parts epic, heartfelt, soaring and pounding. A deep and introspective LP that ties together their indie-rock-disco past, with their enhanced studio sophistication, and connection to the club scene. Not so much a departure, but a more a step-beyond and above their founding template, when they were playing alongside the likes of LCD Soundsystem, and Soulwax.
Today, you’re more likely to see WhoMadeWho on such line-ups featuring Lee Burridge, Modeselektor, Tale Of Us and other dance music luminaries, as opposed to artists from the yesteryear of indie-dance.
