This week Deezer Close Up brings its focus on Paul Kalkbrenner, Berlin-based music producer and actor, to learn about his new album, 7, and the musicians that inspire him, including Kraftwerk, Ennio Morricone and Kalkbrenner’s own brother, Fritz.
Kalkbrenner reveals details about his new track “Cloud Rider” as well as the 2009 hit “Sky and Sand,” which he wrote with his brother for the soundtrack to Berlin Calling. Later he’ll explain why teaching his brother how to produce music was formative on both artists. His reflections on Kraftwerk’s “Autobahn” and Morricone’s “Man with the Harmonica” underscore his reverence for those pioneers.
When you’re done watching Close Up be sure to check out Kalkbrenner’s new album on Deezer! http://www.deezer.com/album/10879806
