Cologne-based producer Julian Stetter isn’t entirely new to the NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION cosmos. As 50 percent of VIMES he’s been a regular guest to our page throughout the past decade (like in this lovely guestmix from five years ago). But he also released a few solo tracks over the past years – now, he’s ready for the next step by announcing the release of his debut album Sky Without Colours. On the record he’s collaborating with another old favourite of ours – German indie rock icon Aydo Abay who is featured on four of the eight tracks of the album, including the shimmering title-track we’d like to highlight today. It’s not straight dancefloor material we’re getting from Julian Stetter here, instead it’s a floating piece of electronic pop bliss in which Abay plays the role of the melancholic narrator. There is a sweet and gentle groove that drives the track but overall it got that introspective feeling and that really captivates the listener. The full album is out on September 17.
