"Kool Savas (formerly King Kool Savas (KKS), Juks or Jux) (born February 10, 1975 in Aachen) is a German rapper of Turkish descent and one of Germany's most influencial hip hop artists. His real name is Savaş Yurderi. Savaş is the turkish word for War. He is also the frontman of the Optik Army. [...] As a baby, one-year-old Savas returned to Turkey with his family. His father was arrested for political activities, forcing his mother to return to Aachen. In 1987 the reunited family moved to Berlin where Savas first came in contact with rap music. In 1997, he acted in the film Geschwister – Kardesler in the role of Ahmed.
He lives with his long-time girlfriend Melbeatz in Berlin. The relationship is also one of artistic and business collaboration as she produces many of his beats. They also are both vegetarians. At the end of 2004, there was a rumor that they were no longer together. Savas seems to confirm this in the song "Was hab' ich dir angetan?" (What did I do to you?) on the album ONE."

500,000 Thousand People and German Rap

Depending on what source you trust, at least 500.000 thousand people yesterday celebrated at Brandenburg Gate.

As some veteran of loveparade and the “fanmeile” who has been there for nearly all the last year’s football worldcup matches i would trust the estimates which see 700.000 visitors. As you might remember the Berlin Fanmeile (fanmile) whas the area between Brandenburg Gate and Siegessaeule where up to one million people gathered during each day of last year’s football fiesta.

[...] The event, powered by Coca-Cola and MTV, saw some of the most popular german bands on stage. As we previously reported back here, the 10 finalists of the Coca-Cola Soundwave Discovery Tour had become the chance to perform live on the big stage before it was time for the top acts which are all nominated for the MTV European Music Awards, to show their skills. The lineup included “Die Ohrboten, Ich + Ich, Juli, 2raumwohnung, Silbermond, Sportfreunde Stiller and the Die Fantastischen Vier”.

Due to the great weather, the perfect organization and the headlining bands which you can rarely see in such concentration the mood of the audience was high. After some perfect performances, the surprise act of this day, the Sportfreunde Stiller appeared live on stage, the band who did last year’s summer hit “54, 64, 90, 2006”, some song about germany’s world cup team. Naturally the boys performed their german superhit - this time to honor the german female soccer team who just became the new world champion.

Shortly after 9pm one of the most sucessfull german bands of all times started their show. “Die Fantastischen Vier” also known as Fanta 4 is a German hip hop group from Stuttgart, Germany. The members are Michael Bernd Schmidt alias Smudo, Andreas Rieke alias And.Ypsilon, Thomas Dürr alias Hausmeister (janitor) Thomas D and Michael ‘Michi’ Beck alias Dee Jot Hausmarke. They made German hip hop, or Deutschen Sprechgesang (German spoken-song) as they called it, popular in Germany.

The show of the “Fanta 4” was one of the main reasons why many fans had travelled to Berlin from all over Germany and it was worth it. In some one hour show which had to follow some tight time schedule as it was aired live by MTV, they presented many of their hits and made the crowd sing along to their well known tunes. Some of you non-german electronic music afficionados might at least know their song “Krieger” from Aphex Twin’s 26 Mixes For Cash album.

After some more political gatherings during the previous years, this entertainment highlight called Coca-Cola Soundwave was some event worth being the main attraction during this “Tag der Deutschen Einheit 2007”.
