Konig im Exil on Bounce House

EP: Das Licht
Artist: Konig im Exil
Remixers: DJ Hal, DK Watts
Catalog: BHEP42
Release Date: 24 June 2013

König Im Exil (German for ‘king in exile’) is a musical endeavor influenced by minimal techno, krautrock, ambient, trance and electronic music pioneers from the 70′s and 80′s. The members (Robert Smit aka Sick Boy & Rodger Mettenday) joined forces in 2011 to create music from a different starting point than a commercial one. Separately the two König Im Exil founders scored commercial successes for acclaimed strongholds like Spinnin’ Records (NL) and Dim Mak Records (US). Their first combined achievements consisted of atmospheric remixes for Kill Hannah (Chicago, US) and Bomb the Bass (London, UK). Das Licht is the first original track being released with many more to follow.
For remix duty, Bounce House sought out industry stalwart DJ Hal fresh off his recent release on Get Physical.  The Nottingham, UK native has seen his name splashed on a number of top labels and Bounce House is happy to have him on board.
Rounding things out on the remix tip, label owner DK Watts churns out a deep groover primed for those early evening and morning sets.
