5 YEARS OF FAMILY PIKNIK MUSIC : BEST OF REMIXES

ME & HER RELEASES 'HEROES' ON FAMILY PIKNIK MUSIC

ME&her.jpg

ME & Her is a German born artist who has played across Europe, South Africa, India and the United States. She is a strong willed character who does things her own way. With this alias she focuses on sophisticated techno. 'Heroes' is a deep rolling tune with a captivating groove that is overlaid with spine tingling vocals. They bring an emo edge to the late night atmospheres as wispy pads add future further details. Heroes (NØREQUEST Remix) is then more turbulent and dark, with frosted textures and menacing bass all building the pressure. Heroes (Abstraal Remix) closes out with a more layered, percussive sound that is moody and perfect for the back rooms. This is another vital EP on Family Piknik Music.
