I present to you: MK_ultra: “MIND THE GAP”
Producing this album was a pain and a bliss at the same time, and you can hear that, I believe. It took me 3 years. Parts of it where recorded in Poland just before a very intense time in my life and it seems this album reflects these very trying experiences I had thereafter. Initially thought of as a 2nd part to the antecedent album-maxi-ep “The Rift” it more and more turned into something more conceptual. It became a story, a dark fairytale and it is supposed to be listened to in one go, as an album – old school. And even if its mood is often grim, it tries to get to a point of peaceful acceptance of the beauty of our existence – it has a very simple message I guess: “Things will not last forever, so do not waste your time and energy.”
I want to thank adamned.age, Thomas, Yola & Thiemo for helping making this possible, and I dedicate “to Kate” to Katja Becker, “lost at sea” to Yola Icho and “this mans story” to myself and all people who dare to make mistakes in their lives. Mostly I thank Sulamith, whom I love, for her beautiful pictures and her patience.
