Katermukke is more than proud to present VALENTIN, Dan Bay & Le Rubrique with their absolutely amazing debut EP “Wir sind Kinder”
"Wir sind Kinder" is a hymn to freedom for all people without the support and acceptance of the majority of society who still have to fight every day to be who they are and to be able to love who they want. However the track doesn't bear witness to complaints, the track bears witness to hope. “We are children - and we are many of them”.
Lyrically as well as musically, the downtempo piece does a balancing act between lightness and drama - like the soundtrack of a dream. A minimalist electronic beat to dramatic tuba and harpsichord.
The accompanying remix by Niconé expresses nothing less than the basic essence of the track: "We fly when we dance. I am everything you are."
"Mädchen im Mond" is a classic love song: it's about long nights, seduction, attraction and togetherness. The fact that it is deliberately a love story between two women is not intended as a sales argument, but as a reflection of the reality of the environment around the singer VALENTIN.
It's the soundtrack of a dream come true, blurring the lines of memory and hope. The whole piece is based on just one note of a kalimba. Beginning with organic sounds, the piece's dramaturgy culminates in a bass-heavy club sound that disappears into nothingness and leads back to the source.
Dirty Doering himself created a remix for this piece, which catapults the listener into an ecstatic game of rapprochement.
