“This is not music about a fast train to Paris. This is not music for airports.”
Berlin-based artist Gajek is releasing a new album – Vitamin D – via Clark’s Throttle Records this August.
Augmenting his digital set-up with a Casio MIDI guitar and his own vocals, the album explores memories of East Germany during the ’90s after the collapse of the Berlin wall on 9th November 1989.
Across its 12 tracks, Vitamin D “taps into the memory of sudden ruptures, trauma and loss, not out of melancholy but to mobilise the lived experience that things can and do, in fact, change,” explains the label.
Vitamin D follows the release of Gajek’s album ’17 on Monkeytown in 2017.
