Cloud Management – The Monday Is OK Mixtape

7Minute Read

Love Song’s Thomas Korf and Sebastian Kokus and the prolific Ulf Schütte aka Cloud Management bring forth a ray of sunlight through the February clouds.

Rough digi-dub and bass-heavy pulsations. What began as a small release blossomed into a full blown LP VA, with the trio delving into dub music, collaborating with artists like Peaking Lights’ Aaron Coyes, No UFO’s, Seekers International, and Coco Em.

The genesis of “V.A.” traces back to a December 2022 concert in Hamburg, where Cloud Management joined forces with Coyes for an impromptu jam session. This collaboration sparked a series of creative exchanges, leading to further collabs with artists like Konrad Jandavs and Emma Mbeki Nzioka. VA is a “testament to their perpetual state of transformation and innovation.”

With a brief reprieve of sunshine peeking from behind the clouds it’s time to get into pastures new, let’s step into the clouds and go…interview below:
