Artist: Barker & Baumecker
This wonderful Ostgut Ton release by Barker & Baumecker (the collaboration of Sam Barker & nd_baumecker) is a journey that puts our thoughts on many perspectives of the electronic music scene. For example: the tides of generations.
Clubs, labels and artists come and go, and when they go they leave their trails for others to pick up where they left it. Eventually, people hang their bomber jackets or crop tops in their attic and replace them for a house with kids and a pet. Times change, routes change, things change. It goes back and forth.
We love looking at old pictures of parents enjoying disco, cigarettes and cruising their VW vans. Another generation living it to the max, until the max is reached and the only thing left are spurs. Spurs that will be followed by new generations of clubs, labels and artists, picking up at the trail where others left it or discovering new routes for themselves. Every direction you’ll take will take you to new people, new things and new adventures. Take the path you like, maybe many have wandered it before, maybe it’s a blanc page. Picture it in your mind, maybe later your kid will explore the same ways, wander the spurs you’ve once left behind. – TS.
