In Spring 2011, the band will return with their second album, titled Self Help for Beginners. The first single from the record is Opposite of Love, and it’s as big as they come. It shows autoKratz pushing their sound further, into a mix of forceful bass, coldwave and big room sounds all contributing to create a unique modern anthem. Jaymo & Andy George gave the track its exclusive first airing on BBC Radio 1 in December 2010.
Judging by Opposite of Love, not to mention collaborations from the likes of Jagz Kooner, Peter Hook and Primal Scream, the new album is packed with promise.
In four fast years autoKratz have remixed artists as diverse as La Roux and Underworld, whilst developing a reputation for being one of the finest live acts in electronic music.
Their never ending world tour continues to take them to all the corners of the globe, with highlights having so far included Pukkelpop, Lowlands, Glastonbury, Makuhari Messe Tokyo, Parklife Australia, Dour, Solidays and Koko in London. Now a 3-piece with live drums, the intense energy of an autoKratz live show is like no other in electronic music.
Anyone who has borne witness to one of their legendary live shows, or got a record, or even read an interview will surely understand that the bands work ethic is solely driven by their unwaring devotion to music. There is a propulsive energy about this band that makes them special.
