In February 2020, DJs, Producers and friends Johannes Klingebiel & Julian Stetter were invited to spend a month as artists in residence at Galera, a cultural centre in the heart of Mexico City. Whilst playing at festivals and clubs around the country, they spent time collaborating on new productions making full use of the centre’s well equipped studios.

‘Galera EP’ pays homage to an eclectic focal point of music, culture and community. The release’s broad experimental reach and melancholic subtleties take influence from underground dance music, with a certain irregularity (all signals were recorded and tweaked in real time) building into the vivid and warm sound of the EP.
