Welcome to the new and relaxing but also adventurous dope beat ambient trip hop funk soul experience by the two great germans Oliver Bondzio and Ramon Zenker.

As Hardfloor they worked out their own place in music history by releasing great electronic music. In 1992 they released their "Hardtrance Acperience EP" on Sven Väth's cult status label Harthouse. This EP made them famous for their innovative sound far beyond European boundaries.

The song "Acperience 1", which even made its way into the UK charts, is still one of the milestones of Techno culture. Apart from working as producers Hardfloor are very requested remixers for International pop acts like Depeche Mode, Mike Oldfield, New Order, Yello, Human League, Mory Kante and Anne Clark, as well as more underground styleTechno acts like Robert Armani, Secret Cinema, A Guy Called Gerald, Gui Boratto or the Rising High Collective.

In 1995 Hardfloor presented the first Dadamnphreaknoizphunk EP on Harthouse which was followed by the second in 1997 and in 1999 the first album on !K7 followed. With "Take Off Da Hot Sweater" (2002) and "Lost & Found" (2003) the next two albums were released on Combination Records, a German label based near Düsseldorf.

As Dadamnphreaknoizphunk Bondzio, who socialized with Hip Hop and Electro, and Zenker, who began his musical education with e-bass and synthesizer, went to the more relaxed areas of electronic music using dope beats, funky electro basslines, samples from nearly every genre and the 303 structures they are famous for.

For the new album "The Cheerleaders Are Smilin' At You" they engaged the fabulous upcoming female Jazz and Soul singer Bella Wagner from Vienna who gave her warm, soulful voice of high contrast to the 11th track of the album. The other support on this record is the 24 old DJ, turntablist and producer DJ Rafik. The six times DJ-World-Champion, part of the "Lordz Of Fitness Crew" and the "Cosmic Delivery Project" gave his extraordinary scratches to the tunes number 5 and number 13 of the album giving them a touch of weird funkyness. The diversity of this album is also supported by the artists JEN, who is part of different bands like Rabbit In Red, Boyracer or Possum Moods and the Iran born and London based MC Blade, who also supported Eminem in the past.

MC Blade recorded one of the best selling Hip Hop Albums in the UK with his partner and producer Mark B. Moreover the Hungarian female singer Virág is joining the collective. Her voice appears in tracks that found their places on compilations released from labels like Plastic City or Shayan Music. There are also own releases on the label Karmatronic. In Hungary she worked in the underground scene and trained her voice in genres like Jazz, Soul, Rock and Latin.

On the album "The Cheerleaders Are Smilin' At You" the collective presents sounds and moods between Trip Hop, Downbeat, Soul, Funk, Acid and Electro in a mixture that brings high comfort to the listener but furthermore the possibility to explore great music with wonderful quotations and a relaxed music experience.
