Announcing a full-length album for 2018; “Siren’s” suggests an exhilarating and contemporary body of work to follow from Berlin producer Monolink – a bold statement from the maturing studio producer and live performer that pushes a musical vision forward and lashes at the bounds of genre acceptability.
Monolink’s vocal contribution and sways of acoustic colour not only provides one of the best examples of how electronic music can settle amongst a guitar led narrative, but displays an exciting live direction from a fascinating singer/ songwriter to watch.
The single “Sirens” is a tranquil yet progressive composition accompanied by his own beautifully haunting voice that, engaging in sound exploration shows that Steffen Linck has innate ability to link genres and influences so wonderfully.
Amsterdam based producer, Kompakt mainstay and long-time resident at the city’s now-defunct Trouw club, Patrice Baumel provides a true dance floor remix teeming with undercurrents. No stranger to creating his own unique musical soundscape both in and out of the DJ booth, his remix of “Sirens” captures a sunrise of vocal euphoria while retaining an early morning techno feel.
The first album single is delivered with crisp, subterranean emotion from the young producer, a key guide to his explicit appreciation of atmosphere and texture that is sure to follow in more music in early 2018.
