"Culture Kultür" are frontman Salva Maine, Josua (programming / producing) and Distortiongirl as live keyboardist. The band was born in 1992 in Malaga, Southern Spain, evolving from a 80's alike EBM with distorted voices to a electropop with energetic beats, melodic synths and complex lyrics boosted by powerful vocals.
In 1999 they start a frenetic activity. “Manifesto” and “Reflex” are released, composed by previously recorded material. Salva joins the band as permament vocalist and new songs are recorded and published in the “DNA Slaves” EP, which rapidly reaches position 10 in the DAC (Deutsche Alternative Charts). In this year the band also tours in Europe with Hocico and KIFOTH within the “Tierra Eléctrica” Tour which was immortalized in the “Tierra Electrica ‘99” limited edition live CD.
Their sixth album, “Reborn” reaches an impressive 3rd position in the DAC and includes hymns like 'Wonder' or 'The Analyst.
"Spirit" was the long expected return of Culture Kultür, and represents the perfect mix between hard worked melodies, club oriented rhythms, dark cadences and reality inspired lyrics. But there is more in this work beyond the classic danceable tracks that have made the band style popular. We can find a musical aperture to the mid-tempos whose result is both surprising and touching. Its heavy beats, catchy choruses, real life topics, and a vital attitude make this album a work that defines the present of underground electropop.
Spirit reached #4 position in DAC, #2 on GEWC and stayed several weeks #1 sales in Poponaut online store.
