Representing the start of a fresh era for the German producer, “Unity of Opposites” is the highly anticipated new album from Kollektiv Turmstrasse.
Out now on his own Not Sorry Music imprint, “Unity of Opposites” is a love letter to the sounds and experiences that have inspired the Kollektiv Turmstrasse project since its inception. Moving forwards now as a solo venture, the album is incredibly personal and reflects many of the influences that global club culture has had on Nico Plagemann as an artist and will be supported by an extensive live tour across Europe over the coming months.
At its very core, “Unity of Opposites” remains deeply rooted in the essence of house music – a carefully woven tapestry of warmth, groove, and soulfulness. But Turmstrasse refuses to be limited by one style, taking the listener on a genre-hopping adventure, drawing inspiration from breakbeat to hip-hop, all the way to indie-dance with a wonderful array of vocals. What you might get if a scientific lab spliced TSHA with Floating Points, Travis Scott, and DJ Boring.
“Unity of Opposites” is not a club album made for the dancefloor but a gift to everybody who wants to experience Turmstrasse‘s world in a whole new light: A heartfelt personal listening journey.
As one of the most successful German live acts in electronic music, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, also known by his real name Nico Plagemann, is an influential presence on the global techno and house sound. With regular shifts in his musical direction and stylistic development, he is living proof that change means progress.
As an artist who is focused on the liberated space between breakbeat, driving house tracks and anthems for the dancefloor, he is unique and equipped with a compelling discography. “Unity of Opposites” marks his first album since the much-lauded “Rebellion Der Träumer“.
In many respects, “Unity of Opposites” is a debut album, representing Turmstrasse 13 years after the last album. Embracing his creativity as a solo artist, expressing himself in the fullness of his being and inviting the listener into his eclectic and emotionally driven audio world. The feeling across all twelve tracks on this wonderfully diverse, yet cohesive, album is soulful, nourishing, emotive and warm – music made to move the body, mind and spirit in equal measure.
Turmstrasse takes musical departures into exciting and winding avenues, leading us past breakbeat, indie dance, and techno to influences from hip hop and the catchy, but always high quality, elements of pop music. “My sound is a crossover of everything I listen to – and that ranges from soul to techno.” Something that is evident on this new album.
As Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Nico Plagemann has reached a point in his career where he can experiment freely and fearlessly. With “Unity of Opposites“, he channels his broad experience and tastes into a collection of music that stands alone as a testament to his artistry.
