Distinguished Dutch duo Tinlicker have revealed that their forthcoming album In Another Lifetime is out February 18th via independent record label Anjunadeep. In Another Lifetime was recorded at Kytopia (Oude Gracht), the island of Terschelling and their new studio in Utrecht.
Written during lockdown, In Another Lifteime was heavily influenced by Tinlicker’s experience of the past two years. Reflecting on the album name, the duo explain; “These last two years saw the creation of a parallel universe in which human beings had to reinvent themselves whether they wanted to or not. We experienced a lot of lows in this process, but also beautiful highs – in some moments it felt like everything was about to slip through our fingers, while other days the process brought a lot of peace. For us, the title In Another Lifetime captures this journey.”
Featuring twelve previously unheard tracks and an ensemble of vocalists, In Another Lifetime reflects this dichotomy of highs and lows. Whilst invoking the familiar Tinlicker sound of powerful progressive house, the album also explores tangential styles of electronica, deep house, and melodic techno. Tracks such as Always Will featuring Nathan Nicholson and the new single You Take My Hand featuring Jamie Irrepressible are characteristic of the duo; masterful compositions of fervently driving percussion, considered synth design, and hypnotic vocals that make for darker, memorable club anthems. Other tracks convey a less conventional approach from the duo, where they favour breakbeat arrangements and brighter melodic elements. The end result is an album that reflects Tinlicker’s artistic and personal growth.
