Electronic duo Vimes originate from Germany’s capitol of techno – Cologne. They release their third single ‘Celestial’ via Berlin tastemaker label, Humming Records on 30th September.
The duo have received international recognition thus far for their unique brand of electronic music, combining both live instruments with electronic elements and a stirring visual live show made for dancing.
The past 12 months has seen the band support Hot Chip in Mexico, play headline sets across Europe as well as numerous continental festivals including Dockville, Eurosonic, First We Take Berlin and Reeperbahn Festival. Vimes were also invited to play at this years SXSW and Canadian Music Week, unfortunately neither of these happened due to visa complications.
Vimes are made up of Azhar Syed & Julian Stetter. Azhar is Nigerian born to Indian humanitarian workers who grew up all over Europe. He met Julian when he moved to German to study visuals arts and thus Vimes was born.
‘Celestial’ is an electronic dance track reminiscent of fellow Cologne resident and long time friend Roosevelt’s most recent work. The single will will be available from all digital stores on 30th September via Humming Records.
