Conceived in 2005 from a string of old 4-track demos and further realized via a labyrinth of digital workstations and computer software, Kontakte emerged in early 2006. The concept was to blend organic instrumentation within an electronic and hypnotic framework of programmed beats and pulsing synths. Inspired by the walls of sound of bands like Godspeed You Black Emperor and Mogwai, Kontakte’s other main passions were the ambient sounds of Brian Eno, mid-late 70’s German electronica and the early 90’s shoegaze scene. Taking elements from all of these things, Kontakte have endeavoured to create a sound that is uniquely and deservedly their own. Having released two albums to date - ‘We Move Through Negative Spaces’ (2011) & ‘Soundtracks To Lost Road Movies’ (2008) plus the already SOLD OUT Limited Edition EP Superbug (2010) and two early 7” vinyl singles - Kontakte continue to deliver on their initial promise of their own brand of ‘hypnotic, textural, cinematic noise’. Kontakte have been remixed by such luminaries as Tim Holmes of Death In Vegas, Chris Olley of Six. By Seven, Clem Leek, Winterlight, A Dancing Beggar, Russel.M.Harmon and labelmates Oppressed By The Line & Matt Bartram. An appearance on the Northern Star Records compilation series ‘Revolution In Sound’ continued in 2011. The Kontakte live experience is a blistering wall of guitar noise with shimmering electronics and ethereal melodies – a band to savour. Kontakte have toured the UK and Germany, headlined the Feedback Fever Festival in Hamburg and consistently play intense live shows. 2012 see's Kontakte playing live as a duo with a raw, stripped back, more electronic approach. Kontakte are currently writing and recording the bands third album. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
