Time Is Over
"It's every A&R's dream come true: someone from around the corner (Solingen, in this case) sends you a demo. You open the envelope and bing! You instantly fall in love with the music coming from this hardly known bedroom producer. When Nicolas Stefan's Time Is Over was played for the first time at Kompakt, nearly everyone in the office asked 'hey, what's playing?' This is awesome! Indeed, 'Time Is Over' is a nasty little heartbreaker. Soundwise, it's not too far from the second wave of Border Community artists like Ricardo Tobar, but with an extra hint of sweetness and pop. This slightly corroded absent-mindedness makes us want to launch a new genre name: indietrance! It's fragile, but at the same time there's enough punch and euphoria to set every open air party on fire. Here's our secret weapon for the sunny season. Oops, now it's not so secret anymore."
