Biography

First Touch is one of Germany’s best-kept secrets when it comes to soulful Music. Ranging from Boogie, Disco, Modern Soul and Electronica, these folks have been quite active internationally instead of focusing on releases for the German market. This might be due to the fact that the group’s founders reside in two different cities - Mannheim and Berlin, or because such contemporary music scenes tend to expand globally instead of collapsing locally.

Founded in the mid-2000s, the breakthrough has come about within the last two years with the release of the Knockout EP on Omega Supreme Records; broadcaster Boiler Room featured the track “Beweg Dein Körper” on multiple channels. At this juncture, First Touch was already experiencing a good deal of success and, as the group started making its mark by publishing new material characterized by its own original sounds, requests quadrupled overnight.

Recently, they have been en vogue with the disco banger “Prove your Love” featuring Misumami and the Krautfunk Remix of “Night Falls,” originally recorded by German production duo Ströer Brothers. New projects in the pipeline are the Stardust EP featuring Bybofunk and the reissue of the 2009 original First Touch self-titled debut album as a re-mastered double vinyl release. This piece pays homage to the early ‘80s boogie funk and earns First Touch a spot next to DamFunk as pioneers of the modern funk scene. Keep your eyes and ears open as the release of another long player is high in the band’s priority list and take it easy while you have a listen to previous First Touch tunes.
