With a name that alludes to Germany's southern region as well as a decongestant, it's not surprising that Von Südenfed make mischievous, boundary-blurring music. A project of Mouse on Mars' Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner and Fall vocalist Mark E. Smith, Von Südenfed pit Smith's inimitable lyrics and vocals against Toma and St. Werner's sounds, which borrow from electro, disco, dubstep, grime, and more. The trio originally worked together on an alternate version of Mouse on Mars' "Wipe That Sound," which appeared on their 2004 album, Radical Connector, and enjoyed the collaboration so much that it spawned Von Südenfed. In 2007, the single "Fledermaus Can't Get Enough" heralded the release of the full-length Tromatic Reflexxions, which arrived that summer.
