Der Räuber und der Prinz are a music project formed by Ralf Beck (also known as Unit4) and Sebastian Lee Philipp, one half of Noblesse Oblige.
Their 2008 debut 12inch single „Der Elektrische Reiter“ received much acclaim in the club circuit and was playlisted and charted by Andrew Weatherall, Tim Sweeney (DFA/Beats in Space), Laurent Garnier, i-F (CBS Radio) and Speculator (East Village Radio) am
ong many others.
The follow up single „Jagd auf den Hirsch“ released on Desolat features eerie synthesiser pulses, funk-infused drums and languid guitar-scapes, receiving massive DJ support from Ivan Smagghe, Tobi Neumann, Basti Schwarz and many more.
The band is currently working on their next single and forthcoming album to be released in 2013.
