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.
Finally the vinyl of my new collabo ep ‚Dual‘ is starting to hit the stores. My long time friend Tim Kossmann and me caught some vibes during an extended studio session that are now engraved in holy vinyl for eternity. 20 years ago Tim and me started with shared studio sessions and this release is the first one we do together. Have a listen to our dub techno but also housy and ambient vibes. On top we were lucky to get dub techno monolith Steve O’Sullivan – Mosaic Records to take on the remix controls. And we could not be happier with the outcome of this wizzard’s magic. The transparent light green vinyl is already sitting at #2 at the overall and #1 on the dub techno buzz charts at decks.de. The vinly is available at decks.de and deejay.de plus more to follow. Links in the first comment!
I am happy and proud to announce my upcoming ep that is very special to me as it has new sparks on so many levels. First of all it is a collaborational ep with my dear friend Tim Kossmann. We already created music more than 20 years ago. Now and finally we have our first joint ep to be released with tunes that touch our heart.
Furthermore contributed no one else than Mosaic and bluetrain founder and dub techno monolith Steve O‘Sullivan a remix that is truly presenting what Steve‘s productions are about: reduced, effective and deep groovy dub techno.
This ep marks also a new chapter for me as an artist but also for my label Van Bonn Records as this is the first release of a series of collaborations with great artists and techno music creators.
Last but not least did Van Bonn Records find a new home and partner for distribution with the mighty wordandsound
