Interview with

Pilocka Krach

Pilocka Krach, the eclectic Rockstar from Berlin. There’s nobody in the whole Techno circus who sounds and performes like this brilliant dancefloorfiller. Her infinitely new and raw stage presence coupled by her infectious and unusual sound, always demands the crowds full dancing attention. Pilocka Krach has the rare gift of inextricably linking both music and fun, and her fans fall at her feet for it. Extroverted to the brink, extravagant, but approachable, this woman unleashes a kind of techno from a different angle: funky, demanding, dirty, funny, live and direct. She initially emerged from the Noise Avant-Garde scene in Vienna, then the techno-hippy post-rave scene of a good-humored Berlin that gladly considers Monday afternoon to be peak time.From there, Pilocka won over hearts and rode on to victory. On top of it she founds the 7inch collectors label „Greatest Hits International“ as an imprint for her music. In 2015 she finally releases her first album „Best Of“ on Monika Enterprise. Anyone who has ever seen her live can attest to her generous nature – she gives and doesn’t take. Frau Krach delivers: boundless passion and enthusiasm, genuine music for racing hearts.
