[Review] Kyau & Albert – Matching Stories

The mighty Kyau & Albert return on point and better than ever with the announcement of Matching Stories, following a career of more than 20 years, the 5th studio album from the German duo, delivers their most versatile album to date.

Since the release of their first single as a duo, way back in the mid 90’s Kyau & Albert have been carving out a very special place within the hearts and minds of clubbers and DJ’s alike, formulating a sound that uniquely distinguishes the pair within a market filled with carbon copies.

Matching Stories continues where Distant lights left off, with the ability to reach out to a whole new generation of fans, yet beautifully perfecting the sound to which we have become accustomed and love.

Apart from incredible collaborations with  Adaja Black, Jeza, Hello Machines, In Gray, Francesco Sambero and Madeleine Wood which give the album outstanding diversity, and have been responsible for some of the most emotive singles, Matching Stories is laced with Albert’s trademark vocal presence, which never disappoints even when diving into German on tracks like Mein Herz.

Over all, the album is filled with all you’d expect from Kyau & Albert and so much more, if you’re looking for a solid Trance album, with the subtle addition of beautiful break beats and something slightly more progressive or open minded, Matching Stories is well worth the investment.
