A CINEMATIC TAKE ON 4/4 ELECTRONICA
There are only very few electronic music artists who offer much beyond functionality in their music. Those who bring more than this to the table stand out from the rest. Kollektiv Turmstrasse is one of those rare acts whose music caters for both body and soul.
The cinematic take on 4/4 electronica has won praise from all quarters via releases on Diynamic, Connaisseur and the own Musik Gewinnt Freunde imprint. The debut album “Rebellion der Träumer” (“The Dreamer’s Rebellion”) demonstrated a prowess beyond the realms of the dancefloor, laden with frosty electronic melody, downtempo rhythm, and classy vocals. A busy remix schedule has seen them grace the likes of Cocoon, Watergate, Fabric, Ghostly International, Bedrock, Freerange, Get Physical, Soma, Poker Flat, Defected, Systematic and Traum, reworking various acts including Trentemøller, Hot Chip, WhoMadeWho and Nick Curly, along the way.
Watching the Kollektiv Turmstrasse live show reveals how the music connects with crowds on an emotional level and how its melodic and textural depth works in such synergy with its rhythmic backbone. It is therefore hardly surprising that Kollektiv Turmstrasse has been one of the most booked live acts in the electronic music scene all across the globe for many years.
Kollektiv Turmstrasse has a close relationship with Solomun’s Diynamic label – playing at their international parties while releasing music with them on a regular basis. “We have been friends for way more than 15 years”, says Solomun. “Mutual friends, interests and in general a similar perception of music and life brought us together.”
