Cologne is Danny Lane and Vasilios Manoudakis - a photographer and a ship captain who make songs together. Vasilios works as a boat’s captain in New York while Danny stays landlocked, producing tracks and hustling work as a photographer/actor in Los Angeles. The two communicate with one another through music, sending loops and snippets from wherever they happen to be, independently writing pieces of songs that smoothly snap into place. Throughout this, the two share a thing for synths and classic pop, creating songs that are warm, relaxed, and inescapably catchy. Though their influences range from 80s dance music to minimal house and ambient music, they see Cologne as something new and have a very pure idea of success: “If people like it, we are happy.”

Gorgeous sophomore album by Freund Der Familie. Whatever they offer: ambient, electronica, half way dubstep, ambienttechno, house, techno, breakbeat, they always put in their signature deepness. Although they´re playing with tons of genres this 2x12" is a super duper highly entertaining album showing off what FDF is capable of: Masters Of Deepness. Andreas Tölle
