DJ Koze has dropped a new two-sided single in the lead up to his forthcoming album, Knock Knock, which was also announced today.
“Seeing Aliens” and “Nein Konig Nein” are both warm, weird and fresh sounding house excursions and carry the typical charm we’ve come to know and love from the German, while also remaining functional and effective for the dance floor. The two-sided 12” has been given the ambiguous release date of soon but expect to see it out in the wild within the next month.
As regards the album; it is set for a release on his own Pampa Records imprint on May 4th and it features a list of well-known and eclectic guest stars, such as Bon Iver, José Gonzalez, Roisín Murphy and label affiliates Mano Le Tough and Sophia Kennedy.
This will be Stefan Kozella’s first LP outing since his 2013 outing Amygdala, an album which has certainly set the bar high for the now veteran producer to follow up to.
Since then, his various solo releases such as the XTC have found their way into the sets of the world’s finest DJs, and his DJ Kicks mix and Pampa Records compilation, where he collaborated with Jamie xx, have pleased fans and press alike.
