DIE WILDE JAGD
Translating as ‘The Wild Hunt’, Die Wilde Jagd are a frenzied group of supernatural huntsmen who ride through the woods in wild pursuit. Taking influence from the pagan myth, this German duo seek to create their very own “hunting music”, a sound which combines the medieval styling of flutes juxtaposed against a backdrop of synthesisers, unsettling guitar loops and ominous beats of percussion.
Having met in Düsseldorf in 2006, Die Wilde Jagd is the brainchild of producer and artist Ralf Beck and composer and DJ Sebastian Lee Phillip. Together the pair splice influences from the likes of Kraftwerk, NEU! and Pyrolator to create their own dark blend of Krautrock composed using a plethora of vintage pedals and synthesisers.
