André Obin is a young and very talented producer and vocalist from Cambridge, Massachusetts. Having previously released on Ghostly International and Moodgadget he now sets out to conquer the old continent with his trademark indie/dance crossover sound. “Soft Rain” is pure 21st century pop music – strong on melody, song structure and with undeniable roots in today’s club culture. It is this trademark sound that has earned Obin live appearances alongside likeminded musicians as M83, Matthew Dear or The Field.
The “Soft Rain” package is completed by remixes done by Trouw residents Melon and Patrice Bäumel. Melon turns the track into a muscular house monster while Bäumel delivers a shiny, hypnotic interpretation. André Obin himself slows things down and goes all shoegaze with his own epic Fascination Mix.
Marking the second release on Trouw following Bäumel’s debut album “Vapour”, “Soft Rain” demonstrates the musical openmindedness and playful approach that also characterises Trouw as a club. We are proud and happy to welcome a new promising artist to the family.
