[PREMIERE] Karl Kling – “I Need You” (Bahner Remix)

Karl Kling always has something groovy up his sleeve and now Bahner has put his spin on Karl’s killer jam “I Need You” from last year. It’s the perfect way to embrace these sunny June days as we head into sunscreen season. Time to stock up on both Karl Kling originals and remixes. And Vinyl Moon members should grab his debut LP in the Member Store too.

Karl Kling: The VINYL MOON Interview

The Burning Ear and Karl Kling go waaaaaay back. As an integral member of RAC, Karl has been on our radar both through his remixes and contributions to the live show. Watching him branch out into solo stuff was exciting to say the least. Perhaps the only thing more exciting was being able to feature one of those tracks,  “I Will Wait”, on VINYL MOON. Karl has been playing on the RAC/Big Data tour and I recently caught up with him before a huge LA show.

Vinyl Moon: Volume 001

Karl Kling – “Careful”

Sounds like… Karl Kling is aiming for a big 2015 and we can’t blame the guy. Those awesomely warm sounding synths slip and bounce under his hushed voice. The perfect soundtrack for easing yourself into the sunlight for some vitamin D.

Location: Portland, OR

Future: Sample some more of his just released debut album at Soundcloud.

Karl Kling – “I Will Wait”

Music for… slo-mo daydreaming through the clouds and among the elastic creatures you find up there who are dancing and jiggling so subtly you aren’t sure if its them or the shimmer of the sunset behind you.

Location: Portland, OR

Future: More goodness like this I hope.

Strangers is my new album coming out in two parts. Part I (03/04) and Part II (04/01)!
Part I features brand new songs with Tegan & Sara, Alex Ebert from Edward Sharpe, Body Language, etc.

Shy Girls – “Second Heartbeat” (Karl Kling Mix)

OOooh, yeah. This is the kind of beautiful, sensual, groovy, sexy ass shit we live for over here! Remix Artist Collective’s very own Karl Kling is getting down by his bad self on this remix and perhaps even showing up Andre!? Dunno.. Bold claims perhaps…
