Secret, never-before-used location - Old Fountain Studios.
Paul Kalkbrenner has chosen a new London location for the launch of his Parts of Life of Album show.
Loz Poulton (LWE - Head of Production)
“The new space opens up a great platform for production. With it's previous life as a TV & Film studios it has a range of rigging capabilities where we can fix a substantial L'Acoustics sound system over the dancefloor. We'll also be flying trussing with a complex tessellating lighting design, which I’m super excited about; and not to mention the installation of over 85 lasers.”
Paul Kalkbrenner’s eighth album, Parts Of Life (released May 18), comes a decade after his Double Platinum selling LP Berlin Calling, and feels similarly definitive for an artist who has spent the last 10 years topping charts and performing his singular strain of grand techno to ever growing audiences.
Parts of Life, follows Paul’s Back To The Future trilogy, chronicling the arrival of techno in Berlin in the late 80s. It’s clear those raw, stripped down early recordings left their mark. Parts of Life feels lean and elemental but big and joyful, it’s a timeless record marked by invigoration.
This is Paul’s most personal and revealing work, delivered in its purest form. Each track is simply titled with the working file number used in production. The album’s still life cover, painted over a two year period by Paul’s uncle Paul Eisel, offers another glimpse of Paul, depicting a series of unique personal objects.
