released: van bonn & luis baltes: temptation ep

What is there more to say about this release, that made me happy on so many levels. Creating music with my friend Luis is always fun, releasing the music on Freund der Familie is next level and the cherry on the top is the remix by Mathimidori.

The vinyl version was strictly limited and sold out in no time. But you can find the ep on all relevant digital music platforms, so there are plenty options to enjey the vibes.

released: van bonn & upwellings – Cloudwalker ep

As I am a bit late with writing about the release, let me just mention, that the clear purple vinyl sold out in no time. It is uncertain if there will be a repress. Luckily, the ep is also released digitally. Hence you can find it on all relevant digital music platforms.

Van Bonn & Upwellings join forces to showcase journeys of different moods and styles of dub techno on their new ep called Cloudwalker. The opening Cloudwalker Dub is moving in between the triangle of dubby stories told in Bristol, Copenhagen and Vienna. Harmonious, bass heavy and with a special attention to the little something. Bridging is raw and deep. It sucks you in and the harmonies tickle on your skin during a sunrise on a mysty morning. The following Dilated Spaces is reduced to its bare minimum and proofs that when you go deep and minimal, there is always the possibility to go even deeper and reduce the elements even further. Up next is Deepchord co-founder Mike Schommer who directs his remix of Bilateral Kite in moody and texture rich territories conducted by a straight forward kick and dubbed out fx. King Cry Cry is a personal reminiscence to the big soul of the originators of dub.
