DEBUT ALBUM OF PANTHERA KRAUSE OUT NOW
Panthera Krause dropped his first solo full length album „It‘s A Business Doing Pleasure With You“
For starters, don‘t you want to be friends with this piece of work already, just for its brilliant title? Well, wait until you hear the tunes then, and prepare for an everlasting bond of unfettered affection. What Panthera is exercising on here, is an extension of all his previous efforts and yet a demonstration of ability, taken to a whole new level. Meaning, this cycle indulges in the issuing of energized, sanguinely tempered clubtunes as something that comes just natural to this man, while broadening his stylistic spectrum to an unheard and absolutely thrilling variety. He fathoms the potential that both concepts of sonic representation - the ‚track‘ and the ‚song‘ - have to offer, placing this material into an exquisite realm, where both worlds meet. And he exhibits his expertise
and versatility as a songwriter and producer, without ever showing off, but always inviting the listener and dancer into his very own space of lighthearted and wryly, yet passionately grooving understanding of electronic music. Once meeting all requirements of dancefloor-efficiency, another time spaced out into remote reverie, then again dropping lucid Pop-splendour and in the next minute descending into quirky tonal oddness. Plus, he salutes you as a skilled musician as well, playing most of the instruments on here himself. And let us tell you, there are quite a few!
Safe to say, this album ultimately constitutes his signature sound, it is the epitome of Krause-ness. A cliché-free and self determined approach to production- and musicianship that assembles NuDisco-smashers like opener „Birthday Club“, the french kissed Funk of „J-ai Envie De Toi“, an arpeggio riding Moroder-ovation like „Road To Arcadia“ (good moment to mention this album was produced on a console hailing from the inventory of Moroder‘s Musicland studio), the giddy slowed down Soul of „Keep On“, „Das schöne Meer Lied“ - a peculiar, heartfelt and almost delirious tune featuring the recitative of Martina, a blind woman who portraits her inner imagination of the sea, the straightened out IndieDance of „Sledge Hammer“, the slightly stumbling Houseleanings
in „Sunset“ and more to a bright, vibrant and overly catchy manifest of an album that perpetually ensures utmost pleasure, doing business with this fella.

Panthera Krause is a „four-armed“ music producer, DJ and illustrator from Leipzig, Germany. His productions flowing easily between uplifting-chords, meandering arpeggiators and melancholic scapes all framed in housy, MPC-ruled beats, cut-throat samples and a fresh breeze of dirt. Panthera grew up in the late 90s in the eastern part of Germany, where he spent his days between saxophone lessons and hanging out in record stores, se-lecting music for his radio shows on local radio stations. Socialized by the eclectic sound of Kassablanca, Jena he started his musical career with his band Marbert Rocel in 2007 on Compost records.
It was in 2012 when Panthera released his first solo productions on Lobster Theremin. He recorded DJ sets for NTS Radio, Groove Magazin and Gilles Peterson and played his live shows and DJ sets from Panoramabar, Berlin to Corsica Stu-dios, London and from Le Batofar, Paris to IFZ, Leipzig. This experinces of travelling at the weekend, getting in touch with a lot of different people and ideas and producing over the week is still culminating in Pantheras unique eclectic-house-epic-flute-abstract-beat-moment-productions released on labels like Uncanny Valley, Riotvan and Lobster Theremin to name just a few. Together with Peter Invasion he runs the Leipzig based label Riotvan.
