Sometimes everything fits perfectly into place, time and space.
Case in point: one unassuming week last September when Florian Kruse and Hendrik Burkhard held their first ever writing session. In that one week alone they penned such a vast amount of material for some of the most forward-thinking, respected imprints in house and techno it’s almost unreal.
First came ‘Skylines’ on Noir Music, then ‘Broken Mirror’ on Jeudi, then ‘We Own The Night’ on Noir Music, then ‘Move In Slow Motion’ and ‘Hold On’ on Poker Flat. And still the soul-touching creations keep coming... The final two original tracks the pair wrote together in that one incredibly prolific week come courtesy of Joris Voorn’s GREEN imprint.
Mirroring the sensitive balance of life as we know it, ‘The Ground’ is written for those times when the world is far from in the right place... And nothing in time and space can amend it. Those moments when we feel we’re free-falling into oblivion and there seems no escape or solution are all conjured into an emotional storm through Hendrik’s evocative poetic vocals as Florian ploughs the same level of personal emotion into the timeless groove beneath where poignant chords and textured ripples shimmer with star-gazing cinematica in all the right places.
Touched by the original, Joris has also added his own envisioned version: enhancing the emotion and delivery of the original with the delicate drama of bold piano strikes in the fore and lavish orchestral strings in back, it’s a touching twist that amplifies the surging sentiment of the original.
Finally we hit ‘Going Against The Grain’. Carved with equal level of emotional focus, imagination and detail, Hendrik’s sparse vocals delicately drape themselves like a half mast flag over Florian’s robust, relentless beats. As vibrant sprials of synth ripple from whisper to scream and back again, everything about the composition and colour and construction live up to the track title.
Both road-tested live on tour supporting Claptone to successful effect, this might be the last of the incredible star-aligned week Florian and Hendrik spent together in the studio... But it’s not the last we’ve heard from them as a duo. Call it an emotional finale of chapter one. We can’t wait to hear what’s next...
