Come on Progeny is probably the most conventional and well-rounded song on the album “Passive Control”. The track’s vocalist and co-writer is the formerly unpublished German singer Charlotte Brandi.
It is a beautifully and richly arranged song, a timeless and utopian composition that reached its final form in roughly twelve years. The idea and the very first version goes back to 2000, when Yonder was still in his teens. Over the years the track was ditched and picked up by him at least ten times, something was never right. Originally it was meant to be instrumental, but on a rainy summer afternoon Charlotte and Yonder gave a try to a vocal version. The vocals worked so well, that they kept it.

’Waiting For You’ the new single from Kris Menace is a collaboration with Black Hills, a young hotly tipped vocalist from Washington DC, taken from the stunning vocal album, ‘Features’.
Black Hills explains, “I had so many vocal ideas for “Waiting for You,” and Kris built the song in just the most beautiful way. When I first heard the demos, I was immediately transported to the clubs’ bright lights and dark corners–I knew the lyrics had to capture that sense of excitement and possibility, when the night can take you anywhere. Listening to it now, even, I can’t wait for what’s ahead! ”
