"Their current album Intérieur/Extérieur, packed with postkraftwerkian-chansonesk pop pearls, has inspired several artists from the many and various European electronic scene to create an own rendering of Ming's sound goods. Without name dropping a line of great and innovative musicians contributed remixes that will be inscribed as 'Extérieur Remixeur' on full album length: Léo De Léonard (F/Musiques Hybrides), Treibstoff Recordings Feat. Marcel Janovsky (D/Kompakt) Barbara Morgenstern (D/Monika Ent.), Hans Platzgumer (A/Disko B/Doxa), Rework (D/F/Playhouse), Kante Feat. Peter Thiersen (D/kitty-yo) Turner (D/Ladomat), Pitchtuner (JP/D/Doxa) plus other ones. An effect gets infectious: The mystery around the two musical globe trotters (Frédérique & Nicolas) is the agility they have. Brussels is the port and from there it goes out into the European centers like Paris, Geneva, Berlin, Vienna where Ming knot and weave their universe. Let us say, Ming help up the long awaited new wave of Euro-Pop. It is the combination of cultural influences, the melancholy that does not despair but carries the energetic thrust of their music, the lyrics with depth (from Rimbaud to R.M.Fassbinder) and not at least the francophile wings and the electronically calculated German body Ming use to fly (musically) -- all that makes them irresistible for lots of us. One thing is a fact : should it be an infection it won't never be a trenddisease since Ming and all they work with move too fast and unpredictably."
