Today Turkish-Italian multi-instrumentalist and rising music icon Carlita joins forces with German DJ and production duo Andhim to release their debut collaborative track ‘Life.’ The euphoric single will be followed by the release of their full EP, Life, via DJ Tennis’s Life And Death imprint on May 12th.
A skillfully crafted emotive soundscape, ‘Life’ blends Carlita’s eclectic versatility and kaleidoscopic sonic vision together with Andhim’s signature ‘super house’ sound. Pairing driving percussion with atmospheric melodies, listeners are taken on an uplifting sonic journey. As Carlita describes, ‘Life’ has an “ethereal vibe to it for those early morning sunrise moments.”
In Carlita’s own words on the project, “I’ve always been a huge fan of Andhim ever since I started getting into electronic music when I was much younger. They’ve always inspired me and I have always admired the music that they produce. When I started djing i always played their music in my sets and always wanted to work with them one day. When we decided to finally get in the studio together it was so natural and we really fed off each other’s vibe and managed to create these 2 amazing tracks which I am so happy with. Each of us has our parts which we have weaved into these tracks and I feel they are really unique and I can’t wait for the release.”
Andhim added, “Carlita has been always supporting us and our music and after we got to know each other we decided to make some magic together. We love that her taste in music is so diverse and she is open for any direction. That’s also our approach when it comes to creating and playing music. For us there has never been any boundaries in expressing ourselves. With this EP we tried to capture this diversity and put two different moods and energies onto one record.”
Drawing inspiration from a plethora of musical genres, ranging from 90s rock to Turkish psychedelia, Carlita’s musical prowess can be attributed in part to her multifaceted background playing classical cello at the Royal Academy of Music and her Turkish roots. Bridging the underground and high fashion worlds, Carlita frequently hosts her own multi-sensory party during NYFW et al called Senza Fine and has herself has remained at the forefront of the high fashion scene, collaborating with world-renowned brands such as Louis Vuitton, Nodaleto, Raisa Vanessa, and Les Benjamins.
Beginning their musical careers as hip hop turntablists in the 90s before forming an electronic duo in 2010, German duo Andhim have spent the last decade pioneering their energetic, soulful signature sound they term ‘superhouse.’ Consisting of Simon Haehnel & Tobias Müller, the Superfriends Records founders have become renowned for their dance-floor-driven live shows.
The full ‘Life’ EP will be released via Life and Death on May 12th.
