Berlin-based producer David Krasemann (a.k.a. Dave DK) will issue his first LP for Cologne's esteemed Kompakt label this spring.

Moodmusic affiliate Dave DK is no stranger to Kompakt, having featured on several of their compilations over the years and done
the odd remix. Their relationship is formalised here with the arrival of Val Maira, the Berlin producer's third album and a concerted attempt to
go beyond the impressive production skills previously shown by Dave DK to offer "deeply personal expressiveness and emotional impact". Listening
through the eleven tracks on this double LP edition, you'd have to say it's a success; Val Maira is rife with the kind of emotive
electronics you expect from a Kompakt LP and is perfectly sequenced to run through a gamut of moods. A fine album from DDK.
