SampleMinded doesn't define itself as a conventional band, but as a creative collective whose members musically originated from mixed genres like hip hop, jazz, rock, downbeat, classical music and funk. The Munich resident Fabian Dellefant functions as the "brain" and the producer, who has been musically active for 8 years. Under his name he released his first LP "Moebius" which contains 9 Songs in five different languagaes (German, Englisch, French, Spanish, Tibetan). 2009 the project name was changed into SampleMinded.
SampleMinded play psychedelic trip hop with a heavy emphasis on bass combined with female singing and Rap. The songs, which are coined with unconventional harmonies and due to the musical interest of the single members were interpreted into live-instrumentation, include different downbeat and dubstep elements, influences of oriental music as well as vintage acoustic sounds. Because SampleMinded sees itself as a multimedia project and not just as a band, they set value upon the stage design and the performance.
The current lineup consists of Fabian Dellefant (production, guitar), Aron Hantke (drums), Esther Bradatsch (singing), Sarah Kreile (singing), Peter Hornik (bass), (M)Anekin Peace (rap) and Daniel Steinbacher (technic). When performing live, SampleMinded gets occasional support by different local artists. (Photo: Stefan Zinsbacher)
