The third time is the charme...that's right. Thus, the joy about the third album by Marek Hemmann is huge. Likewise, the third album is perceived as an important brand which ought to show the actual extent of a musician's potential. Either hold one's ground or dare something new? Marek Hemmann is not deterred by such expectations. He was merely in the mood for new tracks. The eight newcomers on "Moments" sound accordingly - easygoing, detached and characterised by the same profoundly and harmonically balanced musicality for which Marek Hemmann is world-renowned.  Anyhow, a "just continue as before" mentality is not an option for the Berliner by choice - from the beginning, his music effortlessly blurred the established genre lines. In this vein, his new work is influenced by a great candour.

As already accomplished with his highly esteemed albums "In Between"and "Bittersweet", in "Moments" Marek Hemman takes the listeners - and certainly the dancers - on a journey through different spheres of contemporary electronic music. Nestled in "Helio" and "Bob" branches to significantly different moods are introduced from silent pauses to weightlessly lifting off to dancing around dreamily.  Yet, within the many interwoven details, a noticeable sophistication can be picked out. Even more seamless and subtle, Marek Hemmann manages to unite euphoria and sweet melancholy, playful and sublime sounds, warmly shifting basses and sweeping synth-melodies.

"Moments" provides moments of life and moments on the dancefloor with the fitting soundtrack. We are very happy about this.
