How was your experience on the new Ear Candy Music?Let us know!
Ten track LP version. "Often you will find that one life is not enough to deal with all the things that you would like to do. Yet, as an exception, we are not talking about the traditional objective values like: a house, a child, a tree. If you have an artistic bent, it is more about the question of how to express all the ideas a creative mind is obsessed by. When it comes to Justus Kohncke, he is actually obsessed by a helluvalot of things. This guy is really like a sponge and seems to have soaked in the whole history of pop music with all its inherent, structural beauty and styles. Five years after his debut album Spiralen der Erinnerung (ICI Rec.) and two years after his album Was ist Musik, it was high time to wring out the sponge again that was full of impressions he has collected during his numerous spectacular freestyle DJ-performances all over the world and where he combined both, Kompakt's techno message with the disco jewels of the last three decades in a breathtaking way. And he is full of knowledge that originates from his regular, quasi-scientific analyses of his all-time, most favourite songs. Kohncke is someone who sometimes loves to pass composing C parts as his hobby. (the C part is the part of a song that is neither strophe nor refrain; most of the time, it is the third part of a song indicating the final refrain; the C part is often combined with changing harmonies. A wonderful tool, but unfortunately, it has almost disappeared since the late 1980s in favour of more clubby structures). And it is this highly emotional combination of exploratory spirit with unlimited obsession that makes Justus Kohncke the Alexander von Humboldt of pop music. Doppelleben seems to integrate again the apparent contrasts in a most natural way: 'Schwabylon' is hard and elegant cruising disco funk Daft Punk would have loved to add to their recent album; Herz aus Papier is a cosy ballad called made in cooperation with Barbara Morgenstern; an there is the intoxicating, exotic and psychedelic version of 'The answer is yes' and of course Kohncke's famous brand, his German electronic pop music for the charts of tomorrow ('Wo bist du', 'Alles nochmal'). Heart of the album is the 10-minutes disco monster track 'Elan', because in this track everything starts to vibrate that has made Justus Kohncke the noblest disco knight of modern times. An oscillating promise, a great, seducing gesture, but the promised redemption remains unattainable. Because the disco act has to last all night long. And because of: Who'll be the 'late' to come, will be the last to smile." -- Michael Mayer.
