Dialektik Optimal was a crossover band founded in 1996 in Hofheim am Taunus/Germany in which I played bass guitar and did vocals in one song. You might be surprised by the genre but it was a huge passion for me and i still love bands like Dub War which mix dub and reggae vibes with a lot energy.
The genre was a mix of crossover and experimental elements using loops from a sampler all in German with a Hessian accent. The band was part of a very healthy music movement which was very inspirational in the whole Rhein Main area. Playing concerts in and around Frankfurt with bands like Dreadmaxx the band recorded one official album in June 1999. Unfortunately there are much more not well recorded songs that have been written and performed. The lyrics centered around the topics which occupied us at the time picking up a lot pop cultural references with a good amount of irony.
The band split up around the year 2000 and some members moved to new projects while i started writing downbeat/trip hop songs which let to “music for sunrisers”.
