Press Info:
Null + Void aka Kurt Uenala may not be a familiar name for many music fans, but chances are you’ve heard his work. The Swiss-born New Yorker is the kind of prodigious musician you’d call a “lifer”: no matter where he is or what he’s doing, music is the focus. He first made his name in 2003, debuting as Kap10Kurt on the essential compilation “The Sound Of Young New York”. His song “Die Sleeping” was an early classic of dreamy, club-ready synth pop, and it caught the attention of fans and artists around the world.

It eventually landed him a gig recording with Depeche Mode singer Dave Gahan, not to mention a long list of major acts such as Moby and The Kills.

The collaboration with Dave was especially fruitful —the two became friends, and it wasn’t long before Kurt began writing original songs for Depeche Mode. His love for vintage synthesizers, dark electronic music, and exploring unusual chord structures was a natural fit. The more Kurt worked with Dave and Depeche Mode, the more time he spent at his Manhattan studio. He started writing his own shadowy, melancholic songs, filling them with angular beats and moody atmospheres. After a while, the basis of Kurt’s new solo project, Null + Void, took shape.

In joyful anticipation of things to come ‘Asphalt Kiss’ is the first single taken off the upcoming album ‘Cyrosleep’.

“Asphalt Kiss” is a chunky, synth-driven track built on Detroit electro’s mechanical bounce and has a sinister glint in its eyes. It’s a stark statement of intent from someone clearly in full mastery of his skills.

The remix comes courtesy of Matrixxman – aka Charles Duff – who supplies a typically intense techno workout that twists the track into a futuristic machine funk monster. The tension remains palpable throughout the almost 8 minutes. Stripped back, classy and full of atmosphere, this is sure to ignite some of the more underground establishments this year.
