Paul Kalkbrenner Unveils Second Video In FLORIAN Series

After the expansive ‘Cloud Rider’, Paul Kalkbrenner gives us an opposing glimpse at his forthcoming album 7, with ‘Mothertrucker’, which accompanies the second video in the FLORIAN trilogy.

The decision to unveil ‘Mothertrucker’ as the second track from 7, was impulsive one, but is also classic Kalkbrenner. Paul is an artist who refuses to take the easy or obvious path. After the soaring ‘Cloud Rider’, ‘Mothertrucker’ takes us back to Berlin’s darkened techno warehouses; it’s a stripped-back track designed for those with their heads down, nodding to the beat, late into the night.

‘Mothertrucker’ is a fitting accompaniment to the second video in the FLORIAN series, which is the first music video project created by the award winning creative agency Droga5. Claustrophobic, brooding, and menacing, video two shows Florian, broken, stuck inside, confined to, and literally bouncing off four walls, stripped of his smile, after being beaten and rejected by America in the first installment.

The FLORIAN trilogy features the tracks ‘Cloud Rider,’ ‘Mothertrucker,’ and ‘Feed your Head.’ The series follows a fictional character named Florian; a young foreigner who compulsively shares the music he loves with strangers, though ends up getting rejected. It is meant to parallel the peculiar outsider role of the electronic dance music genre in the US. Despite its origins in Chicago and Detroit, the electronic style to this day hasn’t arrived in mainstream America and is paradoxically considered ‘foreign.’

Whether breaking chart records, selling out arenas in Europe, starring in a movie or soundtracking Berlin’s electronic explosion, Paul Kalkbrenner has lived and breathed techno since growing up in the shadow of the Wall in East Berlin, where he continues to live today.

His new album is both a continuation and evolution of the singular style that has seen Paul amass millions of fans world-wide. Musically as uncompromising as any of his previous albums, 7 sees Paul return to using vocals for the first time since his record-breaking anthem, ‘Sky & Sand’.

After signing with Columbia | Sony International Paul was the first artist ever be given access to the master vaults and tapes of Sony and Columbia, where he had the chance to take samples from icons ranging from Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, to Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. Kalkbrenner ended up using vocals from D-Train (Cloud Rider), Jefferson Airplane and Luther Vandross.

7 comes at the end of a milestone twelve months for Kalkbrenner, last year he was asked by the German Government to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, by performing in front of Brandenburg Gate to over 500,000 people. While in March, after releasing on independent labels for 15 years (10 years at Bpitch Control and 5 years on his own label), Paul signed a long-term deal with Sony International | Columbia.

The release of 7 will be accompanied by a brand new Paul Kalkbrenner live show, featuring a completely bespoke stage and production design to accompany the new material. Pre-order 7 here.


David August Remixes The Acid’s “RA”

One of my favorite underground acts, David August, has lent his studio wizardry, and emotive style to one of The Acid’s several stand out tunes, “RA,” off of their Liminal album. This remix is rich with masterful sound design that fuses perfectly with a soft, yet driving house beat, and RY X’s vocals for a truly stunning rendition. Have a listen above and immerse yourself in the vibe-drenched remix.


Fort Romeau Announces Frankfurt Versions, Shares Track

Fort Romeau‘s brilliant sophomore album, Insides, will return in July in the form ofFrankfurt Versions, a remix EP featuring artists linked to the city in which the EP takes its name.
