Azürite Selection : Jennifer Touch – 27.09.21

Musician, producer, DJ, and artist, deeply involved in a Post-Wave-Cold-Pop-Acid-Romance.

Dresden-born and Berlin-bred firecracker Jennifer Touch releases her long-awaited debut album ‘Behind the Wall’ via FatCat Records on April 24th. Equally, at home on and off the dancefloor, its wave-kissed dreariness dripping with cold sensuality is both vibrant and brooding. Showcasing her unique sound in the saturated world of electronica, Touch successfully draws from electropop and disco influences, combining 80’s vintage synths with industrial soundscapes, delivered with a visceral post-punk snarl.

The influences behind ‘Behind the Wall’ are sometimes easy to hear. Introduced to 80’s pop and new wave via her father’s extensive collection of Human League, Karat and Duran Duran, she honed her trademark sound with the likes of The KLF, Karen O and PJ Harvey motivating her early productions. The results led to releases on Catz ‘N Dogz’ Pets Recordings and Lunatic Records, as well as making regular appearances on Riotvan, the Leipzig-based record label run by Peter Invasion and co-owned by Panthera Krause.
