The group officially announced their split in 2008. Kinderzimmer Productions is distinguished by a highly individual style. More than with most German-language hip hop, the tracks are shaped by a dynamic combination of samples (often jazzy or funky, frequently quoting well-known hip hop classics), which creates a constant change of mood. Textor's sing-speak is marked by high speed, complicated sentence constructions and the occasional use of foreign words and technical terms, which can sometimes make his message seem self-confident and obscure, although the content is of secondary importance to the sophisticated wordplay. In "Back" Textor sings: "Wie ich schon sagte, ich schreib meine Zeilen mal widerlich schnell, mal fettig und langsam, mal sinnvoll, mal sinnlos" ("Like I said, sometimes I write my lines obscenely fast, sometimes slow and flabby, sometimes meaningful, sometimes meaningless").
This mixture of sampling and sing-speak can be psychedelic in effect. As a special feature on their homepage, users can make their own hip hop tape with words spoken by Textor. www.kinderzimmer-productions.de/ Read more on Last.fm.
