Cologne Music Week: Skuff Barbie / Pavelo & Schnell
Pavelo & Schnell, that's Pavelo Promillo and Boris Schnell. Figures from the Berlin catchment area and protagonists of the night. Pavelo is producer, Boris Schnell composer, lyricist and singer.
With Volume & Power they released their debut album, with - as they say - "13 tracks and 7 genres". Diffus Magazine calls Pavelo & Schnell "a dream team the world doesn't know about yet.". A powerful production and partly brute beats mix with lyrics about vulnerability, masculinity, addiction and the big bust.
The voice is raspy, her aura not of this world and her hunger boundless: Skuff Barbie may be a (still) new face in the German music landscape - but anyone who has heard the Münsteranerin once or even seen her on stage will never forget her. Her sound image is a unique blend of hip-hop, R&B, dancehall and pop. The title "Passiflora" is the perfect symbol for her music: hardly any plant is symbolically charged in so many cultural contexts as the passion flower, standing for irrepressible beauty and life itself, growth and development, but also suffering and sacrifice.
