Artist: Kevin Over
Release Date: 24-6-2016
Kevin Over joins Anja Schneider’s mobilee collective and follows up last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Face Off’ EP, with a strong three-tracker for the label.
When Kevin Over played for mobilee at Watergate in March this year, not only had the then-24 year old never set food in the club, likewise he’d never met Anja Schneider, despite the label founder having been one of his biggest supporters, releasing an EP each on mobilee and its sister label Leena Music in 2015.
The night would go down as a career highlight for Over, who expertly warmed up the club floor, before Schneider took over to deliver a peak-time blinder in what was one of the most special Berlin-based showcases in recent memory. As is tradition, a round or three of pfeffi’s were ordered at 7am – and Kevin and Anja chatted into the bleary hours of the morning. As musical first dates go, both were smitten.
Three months later, they’re making it official, with Kevin set to join mobilee for bookings covering Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Spain.
“When I heard first heard Kevin Over’s releases I was immediately struck by his enormous feeling for soul and his understanding of groove. There was definitely something special and of course when you know his young age you must respect his musical education. I’m more then proud to add him to the mobilee family because he will give an extra special input to our artist rooster and brings a totally different perspective which we are always looking for.” – Anja Schneider
“It’s great that mobilee have totally committed to this EP and have invited me to join their crew. There is a lot of progress happening right no and I’m thrilled about the future! This new EP is a straight up release for the clubs that’ll fit with my peak time DJ sets. I had a lot of fun playing with samples, hi-hats and subby grooves. I hope you like it!” – Kevin Over
The ‘Dakota’ EP continues Kevin’s rich vein of form, having released stellar EP on labels such as Truesoul, Get Physical, Noir, VIVa MUSiC and of course mobilee and Leena Music all within the last 18 months, and while studying in Essen, Germany.
