Hip-Hop

Beats, bars, and booming basses

Hamburg’s hip-hop scene is shaped by established artists such as Beginner, Samy Deluxe and Fettes Brot as well as a lively community of young, up-and-coming artists. Ace Tee, Chef Boss and Bonez MC are shooting up in the charts and are carrying Hamburg’s laid-back hip-hop style out into the world. The city’s countless music venues as well as numerous streetwear labels from Hamburg contribute to the city’s very own hip-hop style. Popular clubs in St Pauli and the Schanzenviertel, such as Grüner Jäger, Kleiner Donner, BernsteinBar, Fundbureau and Uebel & Gefährlich, which is situated in a former WW2 bunker, provide the perfect setting for booming basses and eloquent lyrics. The Mojo Club, which is located underneath the Dancing Towers at the eastern end of the Reeperbahn, is arguably one of the city’s finest hip-hop locations. This subterranean venue combines a relaxed, urban atmosphere with an exciting live programme. Offering excellent acoustics, the Mojo Club provides a perfect stage for national and international hip-hop stars. Yet Hamburg’s hip-hop scene is by no means confined to indoor locations: at the annual Spektrum-Festival on the Elbe island of Wilhelmsburg, for example, hip-hop fans can enjoy first-class gigs under an open sky.

At end of the 1990s in a former lost property office (Fundbüro) under the Sternbrücke, a club and live music venue opened with the same name but with French spelling - and thus contributed significantly to making this junction an intersection for Hamburg's nightlife.
