A.S.C.A. EP / FLORIAN SHIPKE
The project Florian Shipke has its origins back in the childhood of the German-born artist Florian Hoffmann. He started playing drums at the age of five years and even a few years later electric guitar got his second instrument. Different band projects followed as well as the first attempts with home recording. New influences came with moving to Osnabrueck.
His roommate - House DJ for a couple of years - introduced him to the world of electronic music. This was the beginning of what Florian Shipke is today. Quickly, Florian was captured by the sounds of artists like Hannes Fischer, Maribou State, Bonobo, Alle Farben, Talul and many more. But it wasn't his intention to copy those sounds, he wanted to create his own, "handmade" sound. And this is actually what you can hear on his first EP "A.S.C.A." - short form for the eponymous first track "A Spring called Autumn". This Song includes acoustic instruments and conveys a happy feeling. The second track is called "Along the Shore" and intercededs a kind of harbor atmosphere mixed with clean guitar chords and an impulsive beat. The last track on this EP is a KlangTherapeuten Remix of Shipkes "A Spring called Autumn" featuring Leonard Bywa and his flugelhorn. Philipp Weidenbach and Felix Adams teamed up to form the project KlangTherapeuten only three years ago and developed to one of the most famous Newcomer in the Deep- and Melodic House scene in Germany. Combined with mellow vocals and flugelhorn shots - this Remix has got big potential too.
