Kastrierte Philosophen (Castrated Philosophers) from Hamburg was one of the most important German independent rock bands in the 1980s and 90s. Starting with a dark sound inspired by Velvet Underground and Nico (to who they dedicated their 1989 album Nerves) as well as chanson, later on they worked on african and oriental influenced music. In their last phase in the mid-90s, they began to work with several young dub mixers, one of which was Jan Eißfeldt. Philosopher Arfmann (Knochenhaus studio) then produced all albums of Eißfeldt's German hip hop band Absolute Beginner and his Jan Delay reaggae albums.
