Mike Vamp and David Harrow had a lot of fun with their album “Diamonds & Dust” last year. Little dirty rock songs didn’t really fit into the vita of the two electronics legends. Glam, snot and rock’n’roll and a pinch of joke: in the music video for “Eyes Cold” they trolled through Berlin with a…

Artist Unknown is perhaps the biggest swindle in electronic music history. While all others present themselves as a consumer product, Artist Unknown keeps its honest unknown face. In no other band members are so unique and yet so interchangeable as in Artist Unknown. The band members could be you and your unknown neighbor. This is our new normality. With their first releases “Future” and “Errorist” on the label Disko B in 2001 and equipped with a necessary dose of humor, Artist Unknown did leave nothing to be desired. The label DataPunk made the series complete in 2006 with their release of the album “Present”. Now the catalogue is re-released on “New Normal Recordings”.

David Harrow began his musical career in the early 1980s on the squatter scene in London’s East End. At the Warehouse Theater in east Croydon he met Anne Clark. Several albums were created with her. “Joined Up Writing” by Anne Clark is one of the style-defining electronic New Wave records of the 80s. With the hit “Our Darkness” the long player landed an unforgettable classic. Anne Clark‘s poetic chanting was brilliantly staged by David Harrow, who wrote the songs for Clark’s lyrics. During that time he also appeared with the underground group Psychic TV. In 1982 David Harrow‘s first solo album “The Succession” was released. In Berlin he produced music for the groups Leningrad Sandwich and Fougorki. A long-term collaboration with Mike Vamp began there. “Low Winter Sun” is David Harrow‘s current solo work with the singer Xeni. Deeply melancholy, dreamy and touching, the artist ties the New Wave of the 80s to modern rhythms and sounds of the current 20s.
