DIGITAL RELEASE OF 'UPSTAIRS'
Dear friends, you can buy 'UpStairs' + remix as a digital single on iTunes, Amazon and pretty much everywhere...or you can head over to our Soundcloud page and grab it for free. Anyway, spread the love and do listen to Touchy Mob's smooth remix.
the guardian et all recommend 'Upstairs'
The Guardian and other bloggers in the Music Alliance Pact (MAP) chose their favourite tracks from around the world and we're happy to represent Germany with 'UpStairs':
"It's getting cold really fast these days so let's turn to some music which may give us comfort. Cologne newcomers VIMES is a duo with a penchant for vibrant electronic music. The voice of Azhar Syed gives the electronics of Julian Stetter a melancholic and yearning touch, thereby making VIMES recognisable. Live they are accompanied by VJ Till Beutling for a complete audiovisual experience. They are currently recording their debut album."

Stay tuned for upcoming tour dates!
BACK FROM MEXICO!25.09.2012
We are back from Mexico! An unbelievable experience. We spent a few days in Mexico City, met many interesting people and saw only a fraction of an exciting country. We played some great shows in Cholula and in Guadalajara (by the way, Hot Chip were GREAT!). We shot a lot of footage and are planning to edit it all into something hopefully interesting soon. In the meantime, you can head over to the Images section and check out a few pictures shot in Mexico.

THE NEXT BIG THING @ DEUTSCHE WELLE23.08.2012

You can listen to the show right here.
VIMES & GUARDIAN.CO:UK 26.07.2012
The Guardian recently covered the current German music scene in a quite neat article called "German music now: from Berghain to Mannheim" and we were extraordinarily delighted to read our name in the midst of many great artists from Germany.

everything is just Borrowed21.05.2012
Do artists nowadays really need home pages? After all, there are quite a few options out there to connect and to share. Maybe even only one significant site. However, as Mike Skinner aka. The Streets once said:
I came to this world with nothing
and I leave with nothing but love
everything else is just borrowed
