Today, on 3 November 2023, Alphawezen are releasing the album “Source” on the Mole Listening Pearls label. This work, which was created after a considerable creative break, focuses on the concept of ‘Source‘ as the origin of creative energy. With “Source”, Alphawezen deliver a clear demonstration of electronic music, ranging from ambient to dance tracks and electronic pop songs. However, the focus is on the deeper theme of the creative source – a core idea that is carried consistently throughout the album.
Mole Listening Pearls, a label with a reputation for quality in the electronic music scene, is positioning “Source” as an essential release for 2023. The album will be available on all major platforms and in stores.
Alphawezen may be getting on in years, but they have held up extremely well. This became clear again recently when the TV station arte showed the film “Nathalie“, the sensual French drama film by Anne Fontaine with Gerard Depardieu, Fanny Ardant and Emmanuelle Béart. The soundtrack includes an Alphawezen track in a club scene.
Over the past twenty years, producer Ernst Wawra and singer Asu Yalcindag, now known as Asu Jung, have travelled different musical paths. Ernst tried his hand at electropunk with the band Elektro Willi und Sohn, while Asu was active in various genres. The sound of Alphawezen ranges from intimate melancholy to the reverberations of global catastrophes.
Alphawezen may have grown older, but their “midlife crisis” is still as breathtaking as “Nathalie“ and their always unique sound is more mature than ever.
