(12"/Download) Ninja Tune ZEN12263/ZENDNLS263, 2011-04-11

Emika's latest single Count Backwards is released on Ninja Tune on 18 April on 12" vinyl and download. Remixes come from British dubstep producers Kryptic Minds who have released several albums, their latest, Lost All Faith, on their own Defcom Records last year. Marcel Dettmann transforms the original song into a deep Techno meditation for which Emika re-sang the vocals. Dettmann is a producer and resident DJ resident at the legendary Berlin club Berghain. Emika explains: "Count Backwards is the story of an over-fed yet undernourished soul in search of a little peace and quiet. In times of stress, you can count your date of birth backwards or spell your birth month backwards and the logical side of the mind is kicked into action, resulting in a feeling of calm. Counting backwards is a coping mechanism in overwhelming moments of panic."

Press Release :
"Count Backwards is the story of an over-fed yet undernourished soul in search of a little peace and quiet," explains Emika. "In times of stress, you can count your date of birth backwards or spell your birth month backwards and the logical side of the mind is kicked into action, resulting in a feeling of calm. Counting backwards is a coping mechanism in overwhelming moments of panic."

"The song is inspired by my best friend from my teenage years. She was a lot older than me and was in therapy. She told me about how our brain works and how it connects thoughts, feelings and creativity. This was the first moment in my life where I became aware of my own creativity."

The single is remixed by British dubstep producers Kryptic Minds who have released several albums, their latest, 'Lost All Faith,' on their own Defcom Records last year. Marcel Dettmann transforms the original song into a deep Techno meditation for which Emika re- sang the vocals. Dettmann is a producer and resident DJ resident at the legendary Berlin club Berghain. He released his debut album 'Dettmann' on the club's label, Ostgut Ton, last year.
