KIDSØ is a Munich-based live electronic duo which include Moritz Grassinger and Martin Schneider. Their music is inspired by acts like Kiasmos, Christian Löffler, Oliver Koletzki, HVOB, Parra for Cuva. According to the press release, KIDSØ’s sound is focused primarily around percussion, felt pianos, strings such as cello and viola, analogue synths, and electronic drums. Their home studio is overflowing with bongo’s, drums and found objects to draw new sounds from.
One year after their debut EP Apart, they announced the release of their first full-length Childhood which will be out in 2020. You can pre-order it here. We already shared “Sparkle”; “Father” is a new excerpt. They explain: “Since we released our debut EP Apart, we tweaked quite a lot on our live set and equipment. Some of these tweaks affected our way of producing tracks for our upcoming LP. ‘Father’ is one of these tracks which emerged from playing and developing our live set this year. In the past month, we had to process some blows of fate and captured some of the feelings we had at that time in this song. ‘Father’ is a very melancholy but emotional song for both of us and we are very happy to announce it as the second single release of our LP Childhood.”
Check also the remix by Hior Chronik below. His words about it: “The remix was a nice way of getting know KIDSØ’s music, and even although I worked alone on this, I felt as though it was a collaboration. With respect and appreciation, I tried to build a rough minimalistic form of rhythm without jumping away from the original song. It’s so important to enjoy everything we do, and in the case of this remix, I really did.”
