The Deepness enterprise continues: Cologne artist ZIGGY KINDER is renowned for his distinct and crystal clear minimal funk, but already in 2007 he created his own personal parallel house universe with “Que Pasa Maria” on Souvenir Records. Since then he has systematically worked his way into the soul of his machines and cut back on speed and actions. First highlight of this development was his slowmo slapbass slammer “Assbomb”, though his second new album “Barboom” takes deepness and moodiness considerably further. Instead of satisfying mainstream tastes trying to attract attention with common sounds and samples, Kinder returns to a wholesome “less is more” without being pigeonholed as purely minimal. He confidently leans back for he has found his perfect spot: “Barboom” is cool house, club, party, outside-the-box while being a comfy-groovy home in the swirl of triviality.
The album will be available on CD, as a download and a four-track vinyl EP.
Also watch out online for two snazzy videos: in his clip for “Meteoroid” a meteorite uses its magic forces to seduce a Cologne Carnival group into surreal midnight dancing. The super cool “Barboom” video features a liquid erotic dance cocktail of water and ink, which was not computer-animated but completely filmed and edited!
And we have a free bonus track for everybody on top here:
In addition to “Barboom”, WARE has released eight of Ziggy Kinder’s EPs and his debut album “Akkrobatik”. Kinder also produced remixes for e. g. Frankie, Markus Güntner, and And.id (Mobilée Rec.) in collaboration with Schaffhäuser. Further EPs were released on Level, WIR, Minimood and the Tiefschwarz Brothers’ label Souvenir Records.
