Nettwerk Records has announced the signing of lo-fi trio PanCake. The Berlin-based group met each other through various studio sessions and quickly bonded over a shared interest in using vintage studio equipment to record samples.
PanCake has released "Detour" featuring lōland, the second single from their forthcoming six-track EP (details TBD). The song, which arrives with a condiment-themed visualizer, keeps the listener engaged throughout with strong peaks and valleys. “Detour” gives listeners a little bit of everything; featuring jazzy up-tempo horns and knocking drums as well as more subdued portions with soulful keys and laid-back guitar riffs.
"I have always been a big fan of late summer nights,” PanCake shares of the song, “when people would have dinner outside in the streets and whole neighborhoods would meet and enjoy drinks and food. The laid back vibe always led to some really enjoyable long nights. We wanted to capture this block party feeling with this track, a little bit of sampled keys, nice fat bass and some chill brass lines."
PanCake joins Nettwerk's expanding roster of instrumental artists, including Oatmello, Nathan Kawanishi, goosetaf, frumhere., Fletcher Reed, Slumberville, and others.
