Klamauk are very pleased to announce the upcoming release of the Palm Saturdays EP by new label signing Johannes Albert. With his first release coming in 2010 on Oskar Offerman’s White, Johannes has been very busy since then with a string of EPs and one LP across some very exciting labels. Albert’s exceptional talent and sound made him an ideal partner to work with the label. And when you throw an excellent Christopher Rau remix into the equation, you end up with a very exciting EP indeed.
The 4 track EP kicks off with the warm and open groover of “Frentic Moment” which sets things up nicely. From here we move on to Christopher Rau’s remix which keeps some of the dreamy elements of the original but this time underpins everything with a jacking 808 rhythm workout. Over on the flipside Johannes brings the tempo down with “Lift Me Up Tight” which is a gorgeous, beatdown bubbler with pulsing organ stabs and half heard vocal samples. Last but not least we have “A Door I Only Opened Once” which again is a low tempo number but rather than the laid back feel of the previous track, this is brooding and intense.
