Paul Kalkbrenner releases ambitious, expansive new album ‘Parts of Life’: Listen

Is it his best work to date?

Paul Kalkbrenner released his eighth album last Friday 18th May. We haven’t stopped listening to it since.

Having announced the album in March, the German techno visionary teased the LP with singles ‘Part Six’, ‘Part Eight’ and ‘Part Three’, each coming with a unique visual accompaniment showing Kalkbrenner playing his unmistakable live set-up in a different location.

Also, in the lead up to release, and to mark the 100 day countdown to Tomorrowland, the festival streamed a live set from the producer from the Holy Grounds site.

‘Parts of Life’ is an ambitious, sprawling 15-track collection of the sort of melodic house and techno Kalkbrenner is known and loved for. It has been described as his “most personal and revealing work, delivered in its purest form”.

Kalkbrenner recently played London’s newest space, opened by LBE. You can take a look at the Old Fountain Studios venue here.
