Referred to by The Glitch Mob as the fourth member of the group, live setup “The Blade” has been on tour with them since the beginning of 2014. “The Blade” fuses dystopian futuristic design with state-of-the-art custom control software to create a digital live performance system that is as functional and it is mesmerizing, and this documentary, which has been almost two years in the making, will finally shed some light on how it all works and how the project came to fruition.

VH1 “BIG MORNING BUZZ LIVE” PERFORMANCE SET TO AIR MAY 26
U.K. alt-pop duo THE TING TINGS—Katie White & Jules De Martino–have just announced they will return to the U.S. for a series of summer dates. The tour will kick off Thursday, June 18 at Wire in Berwyn, IL and includesrescheduled dates at San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom on July 1 and The Wiltern in Los Angeles July 2. A full list of tour dates is below.
“While making this record we got inspired by clubs from the USA. From Studio 54 to CBGB, we want to capture the energy of those places in our performances on our summer 2015 U.S. tour,” say THE TING TINGS, who also did a select run of dates earlier this year. “We’re coming again America. See you soon.” View below critical quotes from their last series of shows stateside.
This announcement comes on the heels of the duo’s recent performance of their single “Wrong Club” on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Watch online now here: https://youtu.be/XGKGUn6MtjI.
“Wrong Club” appears on THE TING TINGS’ third studio album SUPER CRITICAL, out now on Finca/[PIAS]. The song continues to gain major support at HOT AC radio, this week breaking into the Mediabase Top 30. “Wrong Club” has already been playlisted at SiriusXM’s “Venus,” Mix 101.9/Chicago,KLLC (Alice)/San Francisco, KALC (Alice)/Denver, Fresh94/D.C., WBMX/Boston, WWMX/Baltimore, KAMX/Austin among many others. The band will perform “Wrong Club” on VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz” show onTuesday May 26th.
THE TING TINGS–known for their massive hits“That’s Not My Name”and“Shut Up and Let Me Go,” among others–approached this new album differently. Feeling uninspired, the two sought out an adventure in late 2012 which took them to Ibiza. While there, someone introduced Katie and Jules toDuran Duran‘s stalwart guitarist Andy Taylor who offered to help sift through some old demos and became co-producer of this project. Songs began emerging. The result is SUPER CRITICAL, a hook-laden, modern disco-funk opus.

Debut Music Video From Award Winning Creative Agency Droga5
‘Cloud Rider’ Is Debut Single From Kalkbrenner’s Seventh Studio Album – 7 Released August 7 via Columbia Records | Sony International
Watch Video For ‘Cloud Rider’:
Paul Kalkbrenner today unveiled the music video for ‘Cloud Rider’ the debut single from his forthcoming album 7, and the first in a trilogy of music videos called FLORIAN.
The FLORIAN trilogy features the tracks ‘Cloud Rider,’ ‘Mothertrucker,’ and ‘Feed your Head.’ The series follows a fictional character named Florian; a young foreigner who compulsively shares the music he loves with strangers, though ends up getting rejected. It is meant to parallel the peculiar outsider role of the electronic dance music genre in the US. Despite its origins in Chicago and Detroit, the electronic style to this day hasn’t arrived in mainstream America and is paradoxically considered ‘foreign.’
FLORIAN was written by Creative Directors Alexander Nowak and Felix Richter of advertising agency Droga5 New York, and directed by Bjoern Ruehmann of Furlined.FLORIAN is the first music video project that Droga5 has undertaken.
Whether breaking chart records, selling out arenas in Europe, starring in a movie or soundtracking Berlin’s electronic explosion, Paul Kalkbrenner has lived and breathed techno since growing up in the shadow of the Wall in East Berlin, where he continues to live today.
His new album is both a continuation and evolution of the singular style that has seen Paul amass millions of fans world-wide. Musically as uncompromising as any of his previous albums, 7 sees Paul return to using vocals for the first time since his record-breaking anthem, ‘Sky & Sand’.
After signing with Columbia | Sony International Paul was the first artist ever be given access to the master vaults and tapes of Sony and Columbia, where he had the chance to take samples from icons ranging from Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, to Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. Kalkbrenner ended up using vocals from D-Train (Cloud Rider), Jefferson Airplane and Luther Vandross.
7 comes at the end of a milestone twelve months for Kalkbrenner, last year he was asked by the German Government to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, by performing in front of Brandenburg Gate to over 500,000 people. While in March, after releasing on independent labels for 15 years (10 years at Bpitch Control and 5 years on his own label), Paul signed a long-term deal with Sony International | Columbia.
The release of 7 will be accompanied by a brand new Paul Kalkbrenner live show, featuring a completely bespoke stage and production design to accompany the new material.
