We combine high-quality plugins with real analog polishing while keeping the advantages of total recall. This allows us to make quick changes and revisions. Our gear-list includes tools by Tegeler Audio Manufaktur, Universal Audio, Neumann and many more.
Our focus is on Hip-Hop and Electronic Music of all kinds. We mainly work with Locke & Bart Music and Stresslos Records and helped to release various LPs and Singles created by Hip-Hop-artists like moodus, Mutanten and Duktus T and electronic musicians as Tipo van Scoop, Kaysn and Gravity Shock.
Our love for Reggae and Dancehall is reflected in our participation in Dancehulk Productions.
Team & History
The two team members are Plattitude and CNQ.
Plattitude (Christopher Plön) stepped in the world of music in 2000 with his first DJ-Set. One year later he joined the crossover-band PJuice, where he met CNQ (Christian Niquet) who was playing the bass.
Together they played venues like the Logo, the historically and the new Knust and the Markthalle.
After being Live-DJ for the NuMetal-band Peter Küülfach, Plattitude started the Swinging 69 Soundsystem to play Hip-Hop, Dancehall and Hip-Hop in clubs like Astra-Stube, Fundbureau and Waagenbau and in front of the Audimax of the University of Hamburg.
In 2003 he met DJ Smith and the two started the Electro-Scratch-project Les Cracheurs. They became residents at the Pjuma Lounge at Hans-Albers-Platz near the Reeperbahn and played lots of other events. Highlights were a summer-engagement on the island of Sylt, a club opening in Lithuania and a set on the Airbeat One Open-Air-Festival.
The two also began working on their own music and received the opportunity to look into industry-standard music production, mixing and mastering in places like the Boogie Park.
Their first 12“ vinyl „Hypnotize Me“ was released in 2006 and followed by further tracks, contributions to compilations and mixtapes.
Also in 2006, Plattitude and CNQ were co-founder of the Hip-Hop production-team 69 Sounds together with Doesh, Phil and Kaysn. The team created Hip-Hop beats and worked with some local and a handful international artists.
The big interest in sound-quality and focus on recording, mixing and mastering of Plattitude, CNQ and Doesh resulted in the foundation of the studio-team Waterkant Music. Work for Hip-Hop and Electro-artists and labels, for example Cobretti Records followed.
in 2016, CNQ and Plattitude began the set-up of a new studio and completed their comeback with their first mix and mastering work for Tipo van Scoop which was released in 2017. Since then, they worked on more than 20 releases which resulted in eight hours of music.
Beside the studio-work, CNQ takes care of moodus’ live vocal-sound while Plattitude supports moodus and Kaysn as Live-DJ and spins some records from time to time.
