‘Red Earth Creek’ is a second seductive single from Höhn’s upcoming self-titled album.

Höhn’s spent nine years touring Europe and North America with the neo-soul band he founded, Busty and the Bass. During that time he played at the likes of SXSW and Montreal Jazz Festival, and supported heavyweights like Anderson.Paak picking up critical praise from Billboard, Rolling Stone and MOJO.

As a pianist as well as a composer of music for notable TV shows for the likes of Netflix and a live musician, Eric had an eye-opening experience in Berlin that showed him the immediate emotional impact of techno and so broadened his musical horizons. That entailed heading out into his local Canadian landscapes to make field recordings and turn them into individual songs that captured their surroundings. The album arrives in March but first comes this second single from it.

The beautiful ‘Red Earth Creek’ is like a comforting hug whose melodies give you goosebumps. It then heads out on an organic techno trip through endless woodlands. The drums are warm, the sounds live with soul and spirit and the melodies are captivating. Says Eric of the tune, “We remember the perseverance that takes over in the elements, the capacity for non-human connection to sway and shift our insides into a primal state of relaxation.”

This cultured new take on organic techno is another highlight from a forthcoming full-length that is full of them.
