About

Islelaidback is a place and more important a team. We are two music-enthusiasts who assist artists in the production process of their musical and audio work. This assistance can include mix, mastering and recording as well as production and remix services.

We combine high-quality plugins with real analog polishing. This gives us the best of both worlds while still allowing us to make quick changes and revisions.

Our focus is on Hip-Hop and Electro productions of all kinds. In addition, we realize podcasts, radio plays and all kinds of audio productions.

Among the artists we have worked with are Taby Pilgrim, Liser, Duktus T, moodus, Kaysn , Gravity Shock, Thizzy, access:Icarus , Tobias „Krieg und Freitag“ Vogel , Andre „Egon Forever!“ Lux and many others.

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.

Team & History

The two team members are Plattitude and CNQ.

The two met at a youth center, where CNQ played the bass for a crossover-band when Plattitude joined as DJ. Together they played venues like the Logo, the historically and the new Knust and the Markthalle.

After being Live-DJ for a NuMetal-band, Plattitude started 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-Festival 2004

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.

The big interest in sound-quality and focus on producing, mixing and mastering of Plattitude and CNQ resulted in work for several Hip-Hop and Electro-artists and labels, for example Cobretti Records.

in 2016, CNQ and Plattitude began the set-up of a new studio and completed the reconstruction with their first mix and mastering work for Tipo van Scoop which was released in 2017. Since then, they worked on more than 120 releases.
