In 2005, the djs/producers Yannick Labbé and Daniel Becker team up as Trickski and tour the world with an original, raw, soulful and musical sound. Their first Releases fill the DJ bags of acclaimed artists like Carl Craig, Gilles Peterson, DJ Hell or Peter Kruder, and thus kickstarts their musical career. Trickski‘s unique mixture of playful amateur-jazzyness combined with their willful interpretation of electronic music makes many of the House/Techno/NuJazz/HipHop dogmas look very pale.
In order to give a home to their own definition of clucmusic, the guys quickly found their Member Of The Trick, a sublabel for the Berlin-based label Sonar Kollektiv. But in mid 2008 Sonar Kollektiv slows down, and with it Member Of The Trick. Frustrated with this abrupt ending Trickski do… nothing, except djing a lot with great results.
Their dancefloor-mixture of slow house, disco, soul and a bit of techno takes them around almost the whole globe. And this gives them inspiration. An inspiration that Trickski don‘t exclusively get in the penumbrous same-same of the clubs of this world. But also in the exhausted unreality of the streets on the day after playing.
