“Baal” refers to the spiritual background of Munich artists Matthias Schull and Matthias Dräxler. Directly translated from the Hebrew, BAAL means “Lord,” expressing both Christian and pagan deities. It will remain up to audiences which “Lord” is followed in BAAL’s music.
One of the most promising new acts coming out of Germany, the fresh taste of deep house and techno on their first EP “Metamorph” earned the duo support by DJs like Solomun, DJ Hell and Tale of Us. This signature sound, as well as their new live show got them the “Munich Act Of The Year” award of the Sueddeutsche Zeitung in 2014 and an invitation to play “Pinakothek der Moderne”, one of the most important international museums for modern art and design.
Despite their cross-cultural approach, BAAL’s music is made for dancefoors, with the likes of Watergate, Katerblau, Harry Klein, Yakuza Malta, Autonomica, Aarhus, Utopia Island Festival and The Organic Dance Music Festival bearing witness.
Now, Baal are back with a new six track ep, “NOAH”. Of it’s 6 track unfolding narrative, we exclusively premiere ‘Lumen’, a track voted number one unreleased track at NSV Worldwide.
