French-Argentine duo Fritz & Lang left a strong impression last year with their debut effort – the Crash EP, released in February 2011, included the hit of the same name and stunning remixes by Maya Jane Coles and Feadz.
Fritz & Lang is the fresh collaboration between Parisian Francois Touin – a professional synth head, and the Argentine Nico Stofenmacher – better known through his work on igloo-rec as part of Elephant Pixel. Developing their sound further down their very own electro-disco alley, the duo present here three new original numbers, stamped with the F&L quality seal.
The title track, “Confessions (This Ain’t Time For)” slowly builds up through a warm and steady blend of synths and vocals, a crazy mix previously only heard on Fritz & Lang productions. Their chic yet relaxed and quirky vibes lead onto the track’s main vocal lines, making for a perfect spring opener.
“B4U” takes the tempo up a notch, never leaving the warmth behind. Synth melodies cross their ways in and out of each other building for an epic momentum. “Rain Again” is some pure nu-disco filter vocoding action, on which Stofenmacher lets his vocal talent steal the show.
When Fritz & Lang met Death on the Balcony in Berlin, both duos came together for a listening session and our friends from Leeds decided to take “Confessions” in for a make up session… it came out fully decked out, with shiny dancing shoes and mid ’90s glitz… Jef K and studio partner Gwen Maze, pulled out their best rolling basslines, straightening the mix for full floor effect.
