The German producer’s first two singles for 2023 are now available on all streaming platforms
Still enjoying international acclaim for his second album “Under Darkening Skies” which featured remixes and collaborations with artists such as Yotto, Innellea, Sam Shure and Fideles, and more, Monolink returns to Embassy One releasing his double single “Running / White Walls”.
This new production from the German producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist represents his ability to inject traditional blues influences into this EP, which also captivates the listener with its forward-thinking electronic sound.
Having established a reputation as one of the most sought-after artists in electronic music today, Monolink‘s production continually develops as he adds new textures and layers to his signature sound; pushing his own creative boundaries with each new release.
Behind ‘Running’ and ‘White Walls’
Featuring the double-sided cut with the undulating opener ‘Running’, a production that was released as a vinyl-only bonus track from the 2021 album, Steffen evokes a majestic mix of warped leads, oscillating triplets, and ethereal vocal refrains, all intertwined under warm bass lines and exquisite instrumentation.
Next up is the delightful closer ‘White Walls’. Embarking on a captivating excursion of four or four beats and trippy melodic sound palettes, the single offers a stunning new original that demonstrates the expansive musicality and exhilarating lyricism of his diverse repertoire.
Speaking about the release, Monolink commented:
“Running / White Walls EP is an excursion back to my first musical inspirations; two songs based on blues licks on the guitar, taken into electronic soundscapes. White Walls was actually one of the first songs I ever wrote on the guitar, which I rediscovered a few years ago and now I’m finally glad to close the circle.”
