Representing the start of a fresh era for the German producer, “Unity of Opposites” is the highly anticipated new album from Kollektiv Turmstrasse.
 
Out now on his own Not Sorry Music imprint, “Unity of Opposites” is a love letter to the sounds and experiences that have inspired the Kollektiv Turmstrasse project since its inception. Moving forwards now as a solo venture, the album is incredibly personal and reflects many of the influences that global club culture has had on Nico Plagemann as an artist and will be supported by an extensive live tour across Europe over the coming months.
 
At its very core, \\\”Unity of Opposites\\\” remains deeply rooted in the essence of house music – a carefully woven tapestry of warmth, groove, and soulfulness. But Turmstrasse refuses to be limited by one style, taking the listener on a genre-hopping adventure, drawing inspiration from breakbeat to hip-hop, all the way to indie-dance with a wonderful array of vocals. What you might get if a scientific lab spliced TSHA with Floating Points, Travis Scott, and DJ Boring. \\\”Unity of Opposites\\\” is not a club album made for the dancefloor but a gift to everybody who wants to experience Turmstrasse\\\’s world in a whole new light: A heartfelt personal listening journey.
 
As one of the most successful German live acts in electronic music, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, also known by his real name Nico Plagemann, is an influential presence on the global techno and house sound. With regular shifts in his musical direction and stylistic development, he is living proof that change means progress. As an artist who is focused on the liberated space between breakbeat, driving house tracks and anthems for the dancefloor, he is unique and equipped with a compelling discography. “Unity of Opposites” marks his first album since the much-lauded “Rebellion Der Träumer.
 
In many respects, “Unity of Opposites” is a debut album, representing Turmstrasse 13 years after the last album. Embracing his creativity as a solo artist, expressing himself in the fullness of his being and inviting the listener into his eclectic and emotionally driven audio world. The feeling across all twelve tracks on this wonderfully diverse, yet cohesive, album is soulful, nourishing, emotive and warm – music made to move the body, mind and spirit in equal measure. 
 
Turmstrasse takes musical departures into exciting and winding avenues, leading us past breakbeat, indie dance, and techno to influences from hip hop and the catchy, but always high quality, elements of pop music. “My sound is a crossover of everything I listen to – and that ranges from soul to techno.” Something that is evident on this new album.
 
As Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Nico Plagemann has reached a point in his career where he can experiment freely and fearlessly. With “Unity of Opposites”, he channels his broad experience and tastes into a collection of music that stands alone as a testament to his artistry.

Kölsch processes the past on powerful new album “I Talk To Water”

The Dane’s fifth album is a poignant journey through love and grief

Kölsch – I Talk To Water (Kompakt)

Stream & Buy https://fanlink.to/ITalkToWater

 

Danish house and techno phenomenon Kölsch sends hearts soaring on his rousing new album I Talk To Water, out today, 27th October via Kompakt.

Kölsch’s fifth album for Kompakt, I Talk To Water, is an intimate, deep-dive narrative that interweaves themes of family and history, whilst acknowledging the process of turning grief into comfort. The core of the album is inspired by Kölsch’s father Patrick Reilly, a touring musician during the sixties and seventies who passed away in 2003. Album tracks ‘Grape’, ‘Tell Me’ and ‘It Ends Where It Began’ all use recordings of Patrick’s dreamlike guitar playing to poignant and delicate effect, fusing the album with the past.

Elsewhere, opener and title track ‘I Talk To Water’ sets the tone with a synth-soaked masterpiece featuring vocals from Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, while ‘Dreams’ builds a shimmering soundscape around heartstopping strings. Deeper into the tracklist, sublime lead single ‘An Amazing’ is an electrifying uptempo groove driven by a delicate vocal line repeating the simple yet powerful central hook: “you’re an amazing”.

Pieced together during the pandemic and its numerous lockdowns, the tranquility of this moment inspired Kölsch to reflect on his father’s passing, and how he could memorialise such a significant figure in his life. He reflects, “This whole album is about the process of loss, and for me it’s been one of my main driving forces in my musical life, the whole emotional aspect of whatever I’ve done has been based in that feeling that he’s not there anymore.”

Delving into a wave of sentimental emotions, I Talk To Water began to bloom. The recordings used in the project provided a gateway for Kölsch, to unite both the past and present in a meaningful way, allowing him to create his most personal body of work yet.

Kölsch is set to grace the release of I Talk To Water with a global tour, spanning Europe, South America and the United States, as well as festivals including Tomorrowland Brazil, Art of the Wild and Amsterdam ADE.

Kölsch, real name Rune Reilly Kølsch, is a Copenhagen, Denmark-based house and techno producer who has sold millions of records all over the world. He began in the 2010s producing numerous volumes of Kompakt\\\’s Speicher series, as well as the critically acclaimed album trilogy 1977, 1983 and 1989, which continued his tradition of ground breaking and genre defining cuts. Mega hit Grey taken from 1989, has accumulated a colossal 49 million streams on Spotify. Later in the decade, he founded his own Ipso label and released collaborations with Michael Mayer, Tiga, and Sasha, in addition to releasing a continuous mix of original material on Fabric in 2019. The lushly orchestrated Now Here No Where (2020) marked his return to Kompakt.

A poignant narrative weaved throughout 12 gripping tracks, I Talk To Water is a treat for fans of Kölsch’s melodic, emotionally charged techno.

Martin Solveig returns with uplifting new album “Back To Life”

The Parisian house pioneer’s first full album in over a decade was well worth the wait

Martin Solveig – Back To Life (POSITIVA/EMI)

Parisian house phenomenon Martin Solveig is back with his hotly anticipated new album Back To Life, out on 20th October via POSITIVA/EMI.

His first LP since 2011, Back To Life was worth the wait: jam-packed with unforgettable melodies, zesty productions and talented collaborators, this is a life-affirming new sound from Martin Solveig.

Album opener and latest single ‘I Don’t Wanna Work’ pairs a classic Solveig disco groove with the infectious vocal hooks of Stefflon Don, and ‘Coffee at Tiffany’s’ maintains the party vibe with Raphaella’s sweet melodies over funk bass. ‘Lost’ strips back the groove for a more reflective and heartfelt moment, while ‘Bite Size’ with Ina Wroldsen is a piano ballad set to a disco stomp. Album centrepiece and lead single ‘Allo Allo’ once again looks to Raphaella for an earworm hook that lives long in the memory, followed by the cool downtempo strut of ‘After Midnight’ with MNDR. ‘Now Or Never’ is a rousing, emotional banger featuring a soaring lead vocal from in-demand singer-songwriter Faouzia. Capping off the album, ‘Confettis & Rain’ closes out on a beautifully melancholic piano-driven ballad.

Global multi-platinum-selling Parisian artist ​​Martin Solveig ​​has achieved phenomenal success in his 20 years as a DJ, producer and songwriter and still continues to push the boundaries of music with his pioneering ideas. He honed his craft in his teens, became a resident DJ at revered Parisian clubs ​​Le Palace ​​and ​​Le Queen, and before long was releasing chart-topping singles and producing for Madonna. In recent years Martin​ has teamed up with fellow house aficionado ​David Guetta​ on ‘​Thing For You​’, and also performs as ​EUROPA​​, a collaborative project with fellow producer ​​Jax Jones which most recently found success with the 2022 summer anthem ‘Lonely Heart’ featuring Gracey. With a huge 2023 ahead, Martin\\\’s tour schedule is set to hit 50 shows, alongside 4 sets at Ushuaia, Ibiza this summer.
