Niklas Paschburg is a 23 years old Hamburg composer and musician. This year he released his first full-length. Oceanic is now on !K7’s imprint 7K!. He says about it: “As a teenager I used to listen to Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, Hauschka and all that world, and my EP was influenced by those artists. Then I moved in other directions: for my first record I really wanted to make something different, something between piano, classical and electronic music, but also with some pop flavours incorporated – not in harmonies, but in the songs’ structure”.
He shared a new video for the track “Anew“. It was directed by Federico Testa and uses original footage from a short film shot legendary surfer and filmmaker Bruce Brown, who became famous for producing and shooting much of the film footage for ‘The Endless Summer.’ It features skateboarding manoeuvres performed by a group of young boys, using slow motion and a variety of camera-angles which were not typical in 60’s.
