A chance meeting at a climate conference in Berlin in 2023 has led to the formation of the musical collective Hence. Behind the project we find advertising strategist Knuth who met music publisher Daryl Bamonte during a lunch conversation at said climate conference.

Knuth mentioned his recent purchase of modular synths despite having no musical experience and Bamonte encouraged him by saying, “Record something and I’ll release it.” Knuth simply responded, “OK!”

Yes, things can be very simple sometimes.

The debut single “Stuck In My Throat” will be released on 5th June 2024 on the duo’s newly-formed label, Cosmic Cassettes. It features Danish singer Kennie Orsted and Brooklyn-based Yasmin Haddad from NightNight. The release is rounded off with a remix by Portuguese electronic producer Phaser.

The track will be available through Cosmic Cassettes and distributed by Danmark Music Group, with publishing handled by Archangelo Music/BMG.

Here’s a video teaser.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
