Intro: aMinus – Kool Thing drummer’s electro-pop project


Valentin Plessy is best known to us as the drummer for Kool Thing or if you’re Berlin-based you might be familiar with dance-clash ensemble Plateau Repas of which Plessy is a founding member. On aMinus, Plessy explores electro-pop sounds informed by house, R’n’B and 8-bit, “drawing inspiration from narratives centred around gender and chaotic relationships which characterize our everyday life”.

On the project’s first single from the album Options, ‘Don’t Mind Me Now’, Plessy teams up with Magritte Jaco of Plateau Repas for a track which goes down the pop route using the palette of dance subgenres.

As for the video by Robin Plessy:

Trawling the streets of Kreuzberg, recruiting troops for an unexpected style of showdown, aMinus’ slaps the shit out of Berlin. As the hate and frustration is released in a less than friendly fashion, all elements climax and the scorn of the slap gets steamy.

‘Don’t Mind Me Now’ is out now with remixes on Bandcamp. The album is coming in mid-November through Mad Dog Love.
