To describe this brand new chapter for Musik Gewinnt Freunde and the artist behind this
incredible release it would be necessary to get ready to adventure yourselves into the shadows
and not to think about what would you listen but just feeling it deep inside our souls. The

Black Swan“ following the unbelievable remix he did for „Swimming With Birds“ on the latest

How would you describe a chameleon best? It might be difficult to say it with words as this
creature constantly change his color to fit to the environment and the same happen when Jake’s
attitude for morphing his sound bring an unexpected blaze of color into the darkness changing the
scenario the listeners might got used to.
The dirty sound of „Won’t Change Myself“, which is a live take recorded in his studio, shows
perfectly how Jake can bring together peace and tension with a mix of harmony and roughness in
a special way that is impossible to reproduce and that is becoming his unique trademark while on
his „Black Swan“ he creates the kind of song that takes is shape only at the right moment, minute
after minute, as the tide grows hour after hour on a desolate shore somewhere near the sea just to
fade away after reaching the highest point.
Are you brave enough to lose yourself in the shades and discover this amazing artist and his
music on this brand new MGF030? We did and we hope you’ll walk the same beautiful path that
made us discover this unique talent.

talent. Stripped back sensual grooves blended with hugging textures and melancholic
melodies have become the trademark sound of this great artist.

synthesizers full of melancholy while „Flawless” totally gets into an adventure that still makes the
emotions the core of the message in the track but this time with a different point of view adding to

Since many years our good friend YokoO is part of the „Musik Gewinnt Freunde“
family but now its time for him to present his first full EP with all his visions what
electronic music represents for him. With “Amazonia” Julien takes us to a tropical
forest, a journey deep into nature amazingly combining environmental sounds and
catchy atmospheres into a silky groove that catches your mind from the early beginning
till the end.
This trip continues with “Deep Feeling” and the “Velvet Retouch” by YokoO &
Michelle Owen which drives us to a more club oriented direction but still keeping the
essence of Julien’s sound melting those catchy baselines to harmonies not anyone will
be able to create. This journey ends with YokoO’s remix of “Black Orchestra“
a classic by Cosmic Cowboys taken from their album “Zero Gravity Love” recently
released on Musik Gewinnt Freunde.
We couldn’t be more happy about this release and we suggest you to keep an eye on
YokoO who will spend the whole summer in Berlin and is ready to rock the national &
international dancefloors. And we all bet here at the headquarters that out of the forest
a bright future is standing in front of him.
