It’s not often you hear a track that instantly transports you to the sun-washed climbs of Miami and rapturous dancefloors of Ibiza - but from the moment this tune kicks in – bang, you’re there!
Around one year ago the guys from Dutch duo Klankarbeit, decided to approach all round house and techno don - Michel de Hey - with a bunch of fresh tracks. And upon listening, one particular tune stuck out like the Eiffel Tower to the EC Records boss – enter the Nina Kinert caressed - ‘Art Is Hard’…
Now, as many will know, the Dutch house legend doesn’t play many vocal tracks, so if during one of his sets you hear human tones spilling out the speakers – you just know it has to be something special; and this our friends is just that. Sounding like M_Nus Records cross-pollinating with Moloko, it’s a tune that has all the makings of an anthem without ever forcing itself on the listener. As it’s subltle, refined – slightly twisted and off-kilter – and just loaded with thick, undulating groove.
And after one year of relentless testing – and a classic, back-and-forth tussle to clear the original vocal - it is now ready to be released. This is end of year list material if we ever did hear it!
