Biography

Almost two-decades into their extravagant career, the energy, fun, and celebratory nature of WhoMadeWho has expanded with time. Since getting together a few years after the turn of the new century, the Danish trio have come to mature beyond their dance-rock moniker from which they were originally associated with, to become something yet more complete, experimental, and mature. While still maintaining their wild, colorful and flamboyant nature, WhoMadeWho have evolved to a point where their energy is channeled through their industrious and manic wild shows, which stand strongly connected to their finely composed, harmonic and singular records. From career defining performances at Roskilde, sell-out shows worldwide, in-demand hybrid-DJ performances, hit records, and standout remixes, WhoMadeWho continue to flourish. To date, the Danish trio of Tomas Barfod, Tomas Høffding, and Jeppe Kjellberg have released six studio albums on such prolific labels as Gomma and Kompakt, as well as a mix LP on Get Physical Music, along with a new forthcoming mix compilation for renowned Berlin-based institution, Watergate. Their most recent LP, 'Through the Walls' is emblematic of the band’s current form; a record that’s equal parts epic, heartfelt, soaring and pounding. A deep and introspective LP that ties together their indie-rock-disco past, with their enhanced studio sophistication, and connection to the club scene. Not so much a departure, but a more a step-beyond and above their founding template, when they were playing alongside the likes of LCD Soundsystem, and Soulwax. Today, you’re more likely to see WhoMadeWho on such line-ups featuring Lee Burridge, Modeselektor, Tale Of Us and other dance music luminaries, as oppose to artists from the yesteryear of indie-dance. After recording their first demo around 2003, the band — which kicked off from just a few jam sessions — were almost immediately picked up by Gomma, and had their first club hits with cover versions of Benny Benassi’s 'Satisfaction', and Mr. Oizo’s 'Flat Beat', followed by original tracks 'Space for Rent', and ’Hello, Empty Room', the latter of which was featured on era-defining mix fabricLive.29, mixed by Cut Copy. As with most band origin stories, what started out as a fun side project, turned into a full-time outset thanks to a hysterical fan following, and also in part to their phenomenal live-performances. Germany’s biggest newspaper the Süddeutsche Zeitung even described them as ’the best band in the world right now’. Growing beyond their disco-punk debut, the band went on to release 2009’s 'The Plot’, featuring hits ’TV Friend' and 'Keep in my Plane'.
