Out today is Glühwürmchen by Stimming x Lambert, which represents the second single of their upcoming album Positive.
“Imagine standing inside millions of fireflies (which ‘glühwürmchen’ means in German), at night, in a forest. Nothing dangerous about it, nothing else than pure wonderful nature. Step by step you feel yourself ahead deeper into the woods, followed by those glowing creatures… And then the dream is over.”
Stimming, one of Germany’s most credible techno artists, and Lambert, known as ‘the piano man with the mask,’ combine their two different musical backgrounds to create one of the year’s most inventive, inspired albums. Throughout the album’s making, the duo encouraged each other to investigate bold, new universes: “The world was changing, and the music had to reflect that somehow.” So Lambert stepped back from what he calls his ‘safe and cozy piano sound,’ embracing his few lo-fi analog synths. Stimming, for his part, experimented with new rhythmic techniques, exploiting his versatile understanding of synthesized sound to explore the uncharted electro-acoustic territory.
Positive will be out on October 15 and you can now pre-order it here.
