About the EP =>
Back and fresh on the release circuit for 2k18 is Berlin-based Jose Antonio Garcia Soler, better known to his friends and followers by his artistic nom de guerre KID SIMIUS. The KID proudly presents his FLASHBACK EP, a heartwarming monster of a single featuring no-one less than the beloved band outfit KILNAMANA comprised of Enda Gallery and KID SIMIUS’ brother Miguel Garcia Soler. With the original version of Flashback KID SIMIUS and KILNAMANA present a tender, yet highly emotional slow jam, a modernistic take on contemporary Future R’n’B and Urban Soul accompanied by epic synth leads, a sparse electronic and surely beatmaker influenced foundation. It’s electrifying chorus touches hearts from deep within. On a remix tip for Flashback is NICONE. The German producer who’s been stirring up dancefloors throughout the past decade with releases on labels such as Stil Vor Talent, Katermukke and his very own imprint Dantze. His take on Flashback beams us straight to the very center of a buzzing dancefloor, implementing a warm yet hypnotic feel to his musical interpretation whilst sending punters to a next lexel of ecstasy with large scale build-ups and crystalline synth lines. Closing the EP with his remix is KALIPO, a Berlin-based Bavarian known for his complex and intricate take on club music under this moniker as well as for his activities in the highly successful German IndieElectro-staple Frittenbude for more than decade. His rework comes down to a perfect soundtrack to accompany a beautiful sunrise on the dancefloor, catering a detailed menu of multilayered strings, slightly balearic guitars, pumping beats and, of course, the original tunes beautiful vocals spreading nothing but everlasting love whenever played out to a heaving crowd.
