The two Hamburg based acts Me Succeeds and Arp Aubert
are responsible for the first part of a Ki Split Series. On the EP
named after the city in the north of Germany the two acts combine their
friendship and musical preferences to remix each other and contribute
one very own track on each side.
Me Succeeds, with their members Mona Steinwidder, Sebastian Kokus and Lorin Strohm, is a part of Hamburgs Labelcollective i saw music and their songs combine Indie Pop with electronic beats and chords. Arp Aubert consists of the two founding members of Mirau Records: Stephan Lorenz and Marco Niemerski. Niemerski is better known for his productions as Tensnake.
The Ki-Split 1/3 (Hamburg) is truly a
family matter. Because of their close friendship, Me Succeeds and Arp
Aubert have created a very intense and emotional record. By remixing
each other and combining their musical background this release turns out
to be a very special one for Ki and the acts themselves. The Cover was
created by Me Succeeds in well known Ki tradition to make this piece of
music something special and memorable.
