Biography

KiloWatts & Vanek blow any prejudice about the futility of melting electronic and acoustic music to pieces. The US/Belgium duo took four years to save their album “Focus And Flow“ to hard disc, and put it online for sale on their website.

An enthusiastic fan asked both of them to perform two shows in Germany at a festival for electronic music. That was the first time Watts and Vanek met in person, after having collaborated for several years. A few months later, Dependent owner Stefan Herwig stumbled across a link in the “Hybridized” music forum, which highly recommended an amazing album. The link lead to “Focus And Flow”.

The Dependent label was closed a good year before, but Herwig could not withdraw from the fascination and unique sound of the record, and started to look for a record label for KiloWatts & Vanek. After a few months, Dependent achieved interest from Motor Digital, the net label department of Motor founder Tim Renner. However, nobody seemed interested in releasing “Focus And Flow“ physically. This lead Stefan to reactivate his record label, and gave KiloWatts & Vanek a unique advantage: They are home on two separate record Labels. So far a truly unique structure.

But the theme of unique synergy does not only spread throughout the
bands work structure, it is equally apparent in its music: You won’t
find better vocals and more bittersweet melancholy in electronic music
period. You have not yet heard these kind grooves and wicked effects
in guitar ballads. KiloWatts & Vanek are simply beyond categories like
“Laptop-Folk or “Glitch Pop” as they unify harmonic flow, truly
visionary focus and simply the best of the electronic and organic
