Based in Munich, KIDSØ is the combined talent of two friends, Moritz Grassinger and Martin Schneider, who have both been tinkering with electronic music and percussion instruments since they were youngsters. Their dynamic live shows consist of instruments such as drums, analogue synthesizers and guitars. The laptop is used as an instrument to shape new sounds in real-time. Their sound is focused primarily around percussion, felt pianos, strings such as cello and viola, analogue synths, and electronic drums.
‘Father’ presents a lively electronic beat washed in hypnotic female vocals. Beginning with natural sounds filtering through the many-faceted veneers, the track develops into a pacey atmospheric journey. Still, the undeniable undertones of melancholy flicker in the peripheral, creating an interesting juxtaposition. ‘Father’ is one of those tracks that reveals something new with each listen, every layer polished and precise while at the same time indelibly emotional. Hior adds a touch of darkness, his remix steeped in suspense and ominous tones. While staying true to the driving nature of the original, ‘Father (Hior Remix)’ is a dramatic soundscape of electronic artistry.
Speaking of the remix Hior Chronik notes: "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."
