EB regular Robag Wruhme has teamed up with musician Carsten Meyer aka Erobique. The Hamburg based artist – together with DJ Koze and Cosmic DJ most renown for one of Germany’s greatest alt pop sensations, International Pony – has built up a massive reputation as the disco music entertainer extraordinaire. Within his often hours-long live sets, Erobique used to play a take on George Harrison’s compositions for The Beatles, ‘Here Comes the Sun’. Erobique’s twist was a kind of Babel fish’ed version of the original, but always funny and self-ironic.
Just some weeks ago the track started to show up in Robag Wruhmes DJ sets. It therefore didn’t come as a great surprise to see Robag posting a note on his Facebook page, stating that the track will receive a proper release via Leipzig based label kann records (b-side comes with a new track by Leipzig’s Map.ache). The 10" vinyl will be available exclusively during this year’s 14th installation of Nachtdigital (ND14) in Olganitz. Festival tickets are completely sold out since the end of last year, which means that the 3.000 festival guests have to try getting their hands on a copy (or more) of this release limited to 700 copies. Possible leftovers will be distributed through Nachtdigital shop and selected record stores.
As with every year, ND14 will offer up a creative playground for it’s guests. Fittingly, the cheeky titled track ‘Hier kommt die Sonne’ comes without artwork: buyers are being asked to create their own artwork on the ND14 compound. So don’t forget to bring your stamp, glue, wax crayons and whatever you’d like to see as an artwork for your copy of ND10".
