TUNE Josin - Burning (For A New Start) (Radio Edit)
Josin – the project from German composer and producer Arabella Rauch – has announced the release of her highly anticipated debut album In The Blank Space on January 25th, 2019 via Dumont Dumont / MVKA.
““Burning (For A New Start)” is a sarcastic conversation with yourself about the end of the world”, explains Josin. “You know that you are part of the bad but too comfortable to make a change. Like for example everyday habits that have an impact on our environment - we know they’re bad but we don’t quit them. The very consequence of those little lies is a run-down place that can’t be fixed and has to start all over again. Maybe without us. But that‘s not what I wish for of course - I want to draw an extreme picture of conscious self-destruction, hoping for the opposite.”
The new material is set to build on previous successes for this burgeoning artist, including UK radio support from the likes of Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1), Gideon Coe (BBC 6Music) and John Kennedy (Radio X), to add to fans in high places including Olafur Arnalds who remixed the previous single “Company” under his Kiasmos side-project alongside
Born in Cologne to a Korean mother and German father, both of whom are opera singers, Josin grew up in a household with music at its centre. It was while at medical school in Nice that the desire to make her own music became unavoidable. “I decided to follow the artistic path,” Josin explains. “I did my first year of medical school and this was what I wanted to do since I was a kid. Somehow I never really saw what was right in front of me the whole time - music. Maybe because my parents are musicians and it was so normal to be in an artistic surrounding. I quickly realized both music and medicine needed a 200% commitment and that was a long-time inner struggle. Music won! I think what brought me to this decision, was knowing that I could never listen to music again if I didn´t do it in this life or at least tried.”
