Announce debut EP ‘Identität‘ due June 4th via Arbutus Records

Introducing Das Beat. Das Beat, made up of German actress & vocalist Eddie Rabenberger and Agor of Blue Hawaii. The pair have just shared their first single “Bubble” online now and are set to release their debut EP ‘Identität‘ on June 4th via Arbutus Records

It’s refreshing to hear electronic and synth sounds constructed to releases an element of elation and slight merriment to the motion. Tones that originally convey a brooding intensity yet Das Beat has mastered the playful production of their exploratory vision. The electronic elements within “Bubble” release an effervescent air into the intoxicating aura. Built on these intricate layers and layered with an invigorating buoyant beat and forcible drive. The vocal addition adds yet another complex texture and addictive manner to the creation. This energy this duo conveys is simply charming.

Born in Berlin during 2020’s legendary lockdown, Das Beat seeks to blast both boredom and boundary. Dabbling in German New Wave, Italo Disco, Indie & Dance, their sound is unified by vocals from Eddie Rabenberger, sung in German and English. Amidst playful lyrics one finds a strong underlying pulse (das “beat”), pinning down the duo’s meandering atmospherics, dreamy synths, guitars and percussion. 

The duo is half-Canadian and half-German. Agor (of Blue Hawaii), moved to Berlin from Montreal in 2018. Eddie is a theatre actress originally hailing from a small town in Bavaria. Together they find a strange but alluring symbiosis – like Giorgio Moroder meets Nico, or Gina X Performance meets The Prodigy.
