Artist: We Are All Astronauts
Released: 14th September 2017
Genre: Electronica / Ambient / Techno
For this release, Klangwelt signed contemporary electronic & classical music producer We Are All Astronauts from Leeds. His passion is composing on the verge of ambient and classical music with which he gained a lot of attention and an invitation for this years Burning Man!
After he got inspired by the melodic music of Klangwelt he melted down his soundtrack skills with some Jon Hopkins like beats and a growling bass line for an epic journey between Progressive House, Electronica and Film Scoring which is called “Unsaid” and might refer to his hidden affection for modern techno.
For this special work Klangwelt teamed up with Need A Name. A side project of Dario Lupo who is also known for his Chasing Dreams Project which connects to WAAA´s background of piano & ambient compositions and the love for dreamy sequences. ‘Need A Name’ focuses on a more broken percussive version of “Unsaid”, following the steps of Ulrich Schnauss and bringing us the pure joy of electronica paired with the beautiful strings into a crescendo of shoe gazing post rock influenced spheres.
The second remix is from Klangwelt’s own artist, 1979 who recently got played & supported by Kolsch on Radio 1. With his very own style of analog techno rhythms combined with strong, crystal clear melody curves made to catch the listeners attention from first listening on 1979 built already his always appearing sound trademark. After two EP’s for Klangwelt he now presents a massive rework of WAAA´s “Unsaid” which feeds the more Techno hearted listeners and could make this to the peak of many sets out there.
The last interpretation and not less worthy in this package is the fantastic ambient version of Stray Theories from Australia. His very own music is gentle and soft composed pieces which can be seen as film score productions that can keep up with the big guys in this range of sound. After the first three energetic version, this one starts off a bit calmer and gives the full picture of the original composed strings adding guitars and subtle drums on half of the way through, building up into a burst of emotions until it lets you calm down and fades out this 4 track journey perfectly into silence.
