KRIS BAHA - BARELY ALIVE 12" (EMOTIONAL ESPECIAL)

  • $18.00


The label is delighted to welcome Kris Baha with his first 12” for Especial. After strong remixes of Sfire and Red Axes, his name as an artist, with a darker take on dance music, has risen and risen. Releases on Bahnsteig 23, CockTail d’Amore and Pinkman, Baha has become a respected artist in just a few years. Building analogue equipped studios in Melbourne and Berlin, DJing, producing and mixing have all led to a tonal ear, where success came through dedication. Following his debut album Palais, Barely Alive acts as a release from these years of sweat. A call to all in this modern world, the song exemplifies a move from club music to a freedom in sound and song as vox crash against 808 and Arp 2600. Remixes start with Timothy J Fairplay – a name synonymous with Especial. Here TJF laces his trademark echoplexxed wash for a cold wave mover. Next prodigy Job Sifre builds on his acclaimed debuts with a remodel that goes straight to ‘that’ basement, mixing his love of electro, new wave and industrial. To close, the legend of Das Ding creates a re-alternate remix, fusing his unique fuzz with Baha’s ode for a brittle finale.
