Kraftklub were founded in 2009, when rapper Felix Brummer (aka Bernd Bass) teamed up with rock band Neon Blocks to record a number of songs mixing indie rock and German-language rap. Kraftklub released their first EP, Adonis Maximus, in February 2010 and won the New Music Award seven months later, which led to the group being signed with Universal/Vertigo in January 2011. Kraftklub appeared as an opening act for the Beatsteaks, Fettes Brot, and Casper and took part in Stefan Raab's Bundesvision Song Contest 2011 with their song "Ich Will Nicht Nach Berlin" (the band finished in fifth place). In January 2012, the group released its debut album, Mit K, which reached the top spot in the German album charts. ~ Christian Genzel
