Hideaway 06:00
Moretown 04:11


Christian Bachmann and Fabio Russo find each other again five years after their collaborative effort 'How It Is To Be Free' which turned quite some heads back then. Now the duo is back on the same record label, Manual Music, to showcase the result of their rekindled connection.

Kicking things off with the title track 'Hideaway' that sounds delicate and moody with Christian letting analogue machines to their thing providing the perfect back drop for Fabio's immaculate vocals. This one is set to gain a lot of love from the global indie dance / deep house / melodic house community, that's for sure!

The full on vocal tune 'Moretown' sounds a bit more poppy and crossover compared to is predecessor. A proper listening tune, radio friendly without being overly commercial and a perfect tune to enjoy in the sunshine.

The acoustic version of 'Hideaway' really makes Fabio's emotive vocals shine through. Proper goosebumps material here! And to end things we've also added a shorter edit of the original as well.

All in all it's safe to say it's a shame these guys only collaborate once every five years, but at the same time it does keep it very special, right?
