The brainchild of a devotion to synth pop 80’s, house, R’n’B and 8bit sounds, aMinus is the solo electro-pop project of Berlin-based Frenchman, Valentin Plessy, founding member of dance-clash ensemble Plateau Repas and drummer of Kool Thing.
aMinus draws his inspiration from narratives centred around gender and chaotic relationships which characterize our everyday life. His upcoming album “Options” (Mad Dog & Love Records 2013) is a reflection of expectations, uncertainties and the constant need to (re)create one’s identity in a world where rules and etiquette are omnipotent. His atmospheric & eloquent execution of these themes melodically is exposed in the debut single “Don’t Mind Me Now“, featuring Magritte Jaco, singer of Plateau Repas.
The highly anticipated lead single and video, “Don’t Mind Me Now“ is out now and will be followed up by the full album release of “Options” in Mid November.
Featuring remixes from Electrosexual, Henning Specht and Stereon. “Don’t Mind Me Now” (Mad Dog & Love Records 2013) is available for digital download on iTunes & Band Camp.
