Our dear friends Shakarchi & Stranéus are finally back at Hoki Moki after their critically acclaimed album "Steal Chickens From Men & The Future Future From God".
Shakarchi & Stranéus inhabit a secret place in the universe of music, existing at the intersection of Scandinavian poplands, Hisingen forest raves and outernational placelessness. Faik Shakarchi and Daniel Stranéus famously started making beats together in the coat check of the Gothenburg tapas joint they both worked as clerks at. Their now 10-year old friendship is the story of legends, their sparse vinyl output the secret love of deep house 12'' enthusiasts round the globe – the warm, vibrant sounds found on those records a stark contrast to the stripped-down efficiency of their marathon DJ sets, frequently heard within the more nefarious parts of Swedish nightlife.
The duo has also been a part of Studio Barnhus since the very beginning, first letting us into their strange yet cozy world with the Dödskallar och korallrev EP in 2010, effectively turning what was then a one-release operation into a Record Label.
Steal Chickens from Men and the Future from God is released on all digital platforms, as CD and as DJ friendly double vinyl on March 23rd 2018. The label and the artists wish to thank Statens kulturråd for their endless patience during the creation of this masterpiece
