4 years have gone since their album "Lightkultur" and the very successful single "Adriano (Letzte Warnung)", their last warning after the death of Mosambiquan living in Germany Alberto Adriano at the hands of youthful skinheads, and although the idea already lingered the event instantly triggering the establishment of Brothers Keepers as Afro-German hiphop and reggae crew and foundation for whom the fight against racists, nazis and right-wing conservative politicans in Germany is just one part of the "Brothers / Sisters Keepers" project. Now they follow their allstar cast single "Bereit" we are ready with a second single from their eclectic full-length album "Am I My Brother's Keeper?". "Will We Ever Know" features a who's who of German reggae and dancehall with Seeed's Eased, Gentleman, Patrice, Bantu, D-Flame, Don Abi and Nosliw, here featured over the dancehall of Beatschmieda, the booming hip-hop dancehall of D-Flame in "Flame's Bounzmix" and the funky-dancehall hybrid (that almost sounds like a tribute to Johnny Guitar Watson) of the "Funkmix" by Rootdown's Thilo 'Teka' Jacks. The nice black-and-white shot "Video" is also included with all mentioned dressed like gangster big-shots from the Al Capone heydays. Patrice contributes the (exclusive to Brothers Keepers) beautiful yet sad "My Last Song" dedicated to Oury Jalloh, who died in police custody on January 7th 2005 in Dessau (where Alberto Adriano mentioned above was killed) in Germany, when the alarm indicating the fire in his cell was ignored by police officers. Another great Brothers Keepers must have release.
