Sonar Kollectiv ‘Based on Misunderstanding’ series is designed as a testing ground for new talents. Now up to a 9th essential instalment, it has unearthed some real stars and this latest one does the same again with a new single from RüBA KPØ.
French outfit RüBA KPØ is not a veteran hard rock group like the name might suggest, but rather a four-headed hydra that formed in 2009 and since then has made a big impact in the dance scene. A prime release on King Sound Music in 2013 kick started the project and after that they have appeared on Nanotech Records, Expréssilon Records and more, always with a truly compelling techno sound.
Their standout single here is ‘We Are World’. A minimalistic techno track with an extra overwhelming bassline and a mad acid arpeggio, it also features a whimsical, pastoral choir that carries you off into heaven each time their voices ring out.
Our pick of the release though was the remix by Croatian pair and Compost Records regulars Eddy & Dus that takes the sense of mischief in the original and really runs with it into a playful disco universe. More inviting and laid back, it is a lushly musical piece that encourages you to cut loose in the most charming of ways.
Release: November 18th 2016
