In the beginning there was soul...
Well, maybe that’s not how the saying goes. But sayings can be changed, because history can be challenged and written by winners. Winners such as Âme, who nowadays are hard to set apart not only from the reference-label Innervisions, but also from cutting edge European House Music, full of that soul that they have baptized themselves with – Âme meaning “soul” in French, that is.
Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann are the German duo who, since 2003, have been reinventing old formulas and putting out great record after great record. Kristian is a regular guest of ours, but this time we have the pleasue of welcoming Frank. The reason? He’s the one in charge of performing live the music they both create in the studio. Manipulating everything in real time, a lot of things can influence he who is performing his music in real time for us and that makes each performance unique, personal and, we dare say, also influenced by we who will be lost in awe and trance. From Rej’s minimalism to Junggesellenmaschine’s dramatic psychedelia, fusing boundaries between House and Techno, acoustic and electronic, Âme equals music full of opportunities to get lost into not only the sound, but also ourselves. Unmissable.
