Premiere: J. Albert – Armor


The Exotic Dance label boss takes care of the first release of 2023 on Hamburg’s Couldn’t Care More.

These four walls were her sanctuary, an armour she’d built to protect her from the chaos of the outside world. By choice her days and nights were spent in isolation, it was exactly the way she liked it. She’d never cared much for other people, she preferred to live in her own imaginary world, where everything made perfect sense to her and her alone. In this bubble she felt safe and protected – there was nobody to answer to, nobody to give their unsolicited advise, she was the master of this universe.


Since their inception over a decade ago Hamburg imprint Couldn’t Care More have been home to a roster of artists exploring deep, abstract electronics including the likes of A Sagittariun, Harmonious Thelonious and Stareaway. For their first outing of 2023 they welcome a new member to the family, NY producer J. Albert. The Exotic Dance Records boss and self-described “technologist” brings his distinctive take on deep, groove-laden house and techno for his config EP which is laced with airy, atmospheric pads, intricate sound design and tight drum programming.


config will be released on 24th March.
