Premiere: Kris Baha – Barely Alive (Job Sifre Remix)


He hadn't slept for days, though it felt more like weeks. Life had become a constant waking dream, observed through bleary heavy lidded eyes. Nothing seemed to help, he'd tried every method he could but pills, drugs and counting sheep had no effect. Days were nights and nights were days, a cycle he believed could no longer be broken. A constant feeling of being barely alive… 

Power Station boss Kris Baha lands on Emotional Especial for his debut 12" after dropping two remixes for previous label releases from Sfire and Red Axes. The producer and DJ, known for his heady club take on EBM, post-punk and EBM, has previously put out records with Bahnsteig 23, Pinkman and CockTail d'Amore, the latter imprint being the home for his debut album Palais at the end of the last year.

'Barely Alive' is a return to Kris' band roots and a step away from the club ready tracks he's become known for. Taking on remix duties are Especial regular Timothy Fairplay, the legendary Das Ding and Knekelhuis affiliate Job Sifre who provides an infectious remix that calls on his influences in electro and new wave.
