Solomun continues album rollout with ‘Kreatur Der Nacht’
With “Home” having previously hit the top spot on Beatport‘s Top 100 chart, Solomun now continues his album rollout with the Isolation Berlin-assisted “Kreatur Der Nacht.” The track, which translates to “Creatures of the Night,” is a unique blend of Solomun’s electronic stylings with Islolation Berlin’s post-punk sound, as Solomun explains:
“As a child of the ’80s, I had wanted to make a track with this special feeling for a long time, one which is playing with the punk and new wave appeal of that time. So I was very happy that the band ‘Isolation Berlin’ and I got together last year and the track “Kreatur der Nacht” was born.”
“Kreatur Der Nacht” is the second track released on Solomun’s NINL imprint, launched in October. The Bosnian-German’s forthcoming record, to be released via NINL, will drop in full in May 2021. The single’s video was directed by Golden Globe and Cannes award-winning film director Faith Akin, who explained their inspirations for the video, stating,
“On the pursuit of distraction we become ‘Creatures of the Night’… Mladen and I grew up in the same hood at the same time. It must have been an incredibly creative area…although all I can remember is gang-land. Our mutual dreams from lightyears ago we express in this video, but also the desire for distraction in the here and now and the departure unto a possible, not all to distant future.
Mladen mixes his signature contemporary sound with the new wave of the early ’80s, [which] also shaped me. Artifacts of this culture repeatedly appear in my work; that’s why it was a huge gift for me to be able to have a go at this epic track, visually and narratively. It is the Solomun just the way I love and cherish him, who gave me the chance to personally express myself here.”
