KM007 | Luke Hess – Believe and Receive

Kontra-Musik 007 gives you beautiful and deep techno from Omar-S protégé Luke Hess with an even deeper remake from Kontra-Musik long time favorite, Shed.

“Why are we here? Science attempts to explain life empirically, through theory, and limited evidence. “We see through a glass, darkly…” We study the brain at the expense of the mind, the body at the expense of the soul. People all around us are trying to fill their lives with materials, power, money, fame, pleasure, and knowledge – all in the attempt to answer the fundamental question of life on this planet. The inspiration for the title track comes from the intrinsic nature of Salvation through Faith. History tells a confusing tale of who Jesus was and is. The evidence in science and religion leave questions of faith and the soul unanswered and wanting. What is our purpose here? The Gospel has a different message, Believe and Receive.”

These words come straight from Luke Hess. He represents the new generation of Detroit producers. Subject to the city’s mid-90’s warehouse parties, Luke Hess has harnessed a deep appreciation for electronic music and the expression of the underground movement. This in combination with his background in mathematics and engineering has given him a scientific approach to the dance floor, using frequencies, tones, and sound-scapes to transform surroundings and mood.

Luke’s faith based music production has landed him a seat with Beretta Music in Detroit, Modelisme in France and last but not least, with Omar-S´ FXHE label

The remix is the work of Shed, the man behind the labels Soloaction and Subsolo. His productions sound like synchronized movements of old farming machines, creating beautiful music. EPs like Stronghold, Shot Selection and The Fall contains timeless dance floor music with that extra home listening quality. It is a great honor to finally have his work on the Kontra-Musik label.
