Dear friends, followers, haters, debaters, jokers, smokers, late night talkers, people who judge on the spot, those who love on the spot and those who feel infinite! It’s been a minute since i put out my own music, besides initially producing Lions Head, but this here’s an affair of the heart! And yes, we are back!
We are called the YUM YUM’s (Djs & producers) consisting of me, Chrome from ChromeMusic
, Tand Williams & Meskla both veteran Djs of the YUM YUM parties, hence the name), and this our first own and official release, a collaboration with a long time favourite music maker of ours, Sidney-based Australian singer-songwriter Mat McHugh
, from the Beautiful Girls!
“High Up!” is our first official release and there are 11 more songs to come in the form of a full length album in September. It is is a chilled futuristic late night jam and we sincerely hope you like it!!
The Story behind the music: A match made on our music blog!
I always featured Mat McHugh (matmchughmusic.com
), who is one of my favourite singers, on my acoustic mixtape series “Sweet Serenade
” and on various posts on ChromeMusic
! When i started our label Tanz Dich Glücklich
last year, i approached Mat and asked him to remix one of his songs, and to our surprise Mat instantly gave us his entire long slate of releases to pick from (7 albums) !!
Mat put that much trust in us and our idea for the remixes that he didn’t hesitate a minute. But we didn’t want to simply remix it and add a beat to that already wonderful, emotionally packed material. We took Mats beautifully crafted vocals & melodies, filled with positive messages, and transported it into new musical landscapes where we re-produced and re-imagined (almost) everything to emphasize the emotional gravitas of Mats music, which then in return prompted Mat to even re-sing most of the material, leading to mostly original music. Here i would like to thank a few people especially who were involved in the process and helped me maintain the course w/o losing focus! I’d like to point out my partners from the almighty Riverside Studio in Berlin, especially Martin the head and chief of Kling Klong Records, Olli Laib, the mad musician who did productions for people like Alle Farben and figuratively everybody else, my long time buddy M-tech/Pitchben who used to be a very well known ITF hiphop DJ and played alongside A-Trak and the likes back in the day, and very much to my partner and my buddy Dominik Graf who is better known as 1/2 of Lakechild , who i also met through the blog 2 years back. They were all crucial and an essential part and framework in helping paint this bigger picture! Thank you all from the heart. You are all part of this!
It amounted to 12 brand-new songs which are being released as an album this September, also entitled “High Up!”
