Christian Prommer is back with a awesome herald for his upcoming first solo album UberMood which will be out in March this year! Featuring collaborations with long term labelmates Beanfield and Roland Appel. The Friends At Work EP! And we are more than happy to throw in some serious remix pressure with Dinkys vibrant rework for Duckwalk!
Unbelievable but true, Duckwalk marks Christian Prommers first studio collaboration with Beanfields Jan Krause! Tripping 70s synths and futuristic beats in combination with classical voices and a crisp production are laying the ground for this truly amazing midtempo tune.
No wonder Duckwalk caught the attention of Dinky when we asked her to contribute a remix. We were very enthusiastic about Dinkys Dimension D album on Visionquest last year and the way she is recently fusing songwriting, indie- and pop influences with clubmusic in a touching, fresh way. This proved to be the perfect formula for her Duckwalk remixes as well. She increased the tempo, added a disco infected bassline, some claps, percussion and centered the general mood of the track towards the dancefloor. Dinky wrote, sung and recorded additional lyrics and vocals for her rework, harmonizing perfectly with the classical vocal parts from the original. She added a very special and personal note to it. The strong Dinky Dub comes along with reduced vocals and will be available as a digital bonus track.
With the Debussy inspired chord sequence of Aturo, Christian Prommer delivers just the perfect piece of a clubtune with a very cinematic soundscape - driven by the piano and deep bass!! Simplicity meets musicality in perfection!
One more high quality offering on this versatile EP is Double Red a collaboration between Christian Prommer and Roland Appel. With the latter he formed and has been part of projects like Fauna Flash, Truby Trio (w. Rainer Truby) or Voom:Voom (w. Peter Kruder). After a longer break Prommer and Appel hit the dancefloors again in late 2012 when they released Return Of The Aquarius on the mighty Life And Death label. Double Red is another great achievement of these sessions great build up, deep and spacey vocals and a fierce bass make this tune a epic club workout!
