Chasing Kurt are Pascal Blanché, Wojtek Kutschke, and Lukas Poloczek: two long-time deep house lovers, plus one rogue funk 'n' soul man. It can all be traced back to a fateful night in Giessen, Germany -- where the boys call home. Like most modern day coincidental trysts, it took place in a bar: DJ spun long into the night, while barkeep kept the drinks flowing. As both wound up their respective shifts, barkeep let slip a vocal tune or two. DJ couldn't help but notice. He invited barkeep back to a jam session; at a third's humble home studio. Barkeep was delighted. Though house wasn't really his thing, he had been jamming and gigging for years, and accepted immediately. "Daydream" was the result: a lush, gentle, sultry little ballad -- so good a brand new label was conceived for its release. Finally, Wojtek and Pascal had found their missing link in Lukas' lyrical touch -- a poignant third dimension and invaluable human stamp that would continue to color the nascent Chasing Kurt project on follow-ups "Money" (featured on Maya Jane Cole's widely-touted DJ-Kicks mix) and "Into the City," as well as a second outing on Carry On entitled "In the Air" and "One Day." In a short space of time, the trio has made long, arching strides in the climb up to a dance path of their very own, leaving warm, billowy, velveteen trails behind them saturated with Lukas' soulful pop tones that has helped set Chasing Kurt apart from blancher contemporaries. From the Inside is their debut full-length, and first release for Berlin's Suol Music institution. Expect languid beats and hazy dancefloor-ready rhythms, matched beautifully all the while to seductive tales of love lost and battles fought and won.
