Among the fresh batch of April album drops this week, U.K. bred Vienna based electronic producer/artist SOHN’s ‘Tremors’, with tinges of pop and R&B, easily shook itself away from the rest of the pack. Offering album stream previews on iTunes and live performance videos, these sneak peeks cleverly drew in his audience, with this release currently rising up international charts as we speak. Hyped to briefly connect with the mysteriously black hooded one who’s produced remixes for Lana Del Rey, Kwabs, BANKS and Disclosure during SXSW, I had the amusing and memorable experience of getting kicked out of a hotel lobby with him at that time (you had to be there).
Eager to touch base again in a slightly less hostile virtual environment, I chatted with SOHN on the eve of his U.S. album release yesterday (a couple of time zones away) about this new album release, the funny fact he’s been called a lot of things he’s not- i.e. a band, a DJ, a resident of Germany and Australia, his “Knight Rider” tour bus, how he connected with Lana Del Rey and the possibility of wearing pink polka dots in his future. Down-to-earth with a sense of humor amid the tour and album release craziness, it was a fun convo (listen here or below) , to say the least.
