three months pass...

Third album from the Kompakt discoteer promises to dispense with the vocals (mostly) and keep its eye on the dancefloor. Safe and Sound arrives in January.

Justus Köhncke’s previous album Doppelleben was an unlikely blend of electro-disco and crooning, but the two sides of Justus look like they’ve now officially split: Köhncke now records vocal pop tracks as Kinky Justice, while Safe and Sound focuses on instrumental dancefloor action.

The album was recorded over the last two years at Köhncke’s strange subterreanean studio, located in a Cologne city centre basement reported formerly occupied by a butcher. The tracks on Safe and Sound are variously described as “pure disco bangers” (‘Molybdän’, ‘Love and Dancing’, ‘Parage’) and “Cobblestone Jazz played by one guy alone” (‘$26’) in the press release, but check Uncle Justus’s Myspace to hear for yourself – five of the tracks from the album are now posted for listening. Let the sample-spotting begin!


01 Yacht
02 Molybdän
03 Love and Dancing (Update)
04 Tilda
05 Feuerland
06 Parage
07 (It’s Gonna Be) Alright
08 $26
09 Spukhafte Fernwirkung
10 Safe and Sound

’Safe and Sound’ by Justus Köhncke is out on Kompakt on January 28, 2008.

Safe & Sound's most recurring touchpoint is probably early IDM.
