Biography

King Electric are Chris Isepp and Peter Hartwig.

Their first musical attempts were made at the end of 80s / beginning 90s. These two young fellas first met each other during the upcoming and flourishing Viennese techno scene back in ‘92. While Peter was touring with the well known noise-pop band the Basket Boys, Chris made his first attentions as Electro DJ & Producer.

Due to new influences the Basket Boys soon split and Peter founded BASK with his old band mate Manny Montana; which within a few years opened the way from an Underground live act to an official recording contract. Since the albums “Dark Monkey Moods” (1997) and “World Slow Down” (1999), the band finally are considered as pioneers of the Vienna Downtempo School. At the same time, Chris stopped his own musical career and started as the editor of the “trailblazing graphic arts / technology magazine” (MTV, 1994) ENVELOPE. The magazine reached, especially in Germany and Japan, cult status and still is regarded as the first German-language print media, which united electronic music, graphic design and multimedia.

In the hot Indian summer of 2000, after several studio sessions together, the pair decided to join forces and founded “Sultans of Swing”.
