Best known for their releases on their very own Lucidflow imprint, Klartraum is duo Nadja Lind and Helmut Ebritsch (also of Hatikvah fame). Having teamed up back in 2006, the pair have been creating music together, mutually influenced but their personalities and personal growth. As a live act they have played many of Germany's finest club nights and festivals.
Constantly developing their sound, the pair effortlessly 'flow' between dark, dubby techno and melodic deepness. Always in an elegant and moving fashion.
Today's EP showcases their full array of sounds and styles. Title track 'Phantomkatzen', with its powerful brand of funk opens the show, backed superbly by the spooky sounds of 'Egoismeadeux', a track that recently featured on DRD's 2010 Label Sampler. 'Ignorance' has a special, warm, almost spacious feel, and final track 'Dance Alone' continues the warmth, with a fluid, deep and calming edge.
Overall another brilliant EP from Klartraum, and an equally as special selection by Darkroom Dubs.
