The King Of Cons X Lil' L

Munich Soul

Monday 11th April 2016

Classic songwriting, fancy synth sounds mixed with atmospheric samples from R&B and Soul: This is The King of Cons X Lil‘ L.

The King of Cons is Singer-Songwriter Franko van Lankeren (who has been touring German stages since 2009), together with his long-standing band mate Lennart Stolpmann aka Lil‘ L he has created a new sound which embraces falsetto vocals, guitar, electronic drum beats and lots of synthesizers. Under the name of Munich Soul, this new alternate pop sound mixes modern trap beats with charismatic vocals and creates a unique listening experience.

"We wanted to present a new side of the Munich located music scene” Franko says.

“We like R’n’B but also the cool soundscape of the 80ties. Synthesizers were an important element back then. Both phenomena define the sound of our new EP.”

"Thinking about Munich’s young music business your first associations are probably electronic music and Indie Rock. But we do not consider that to be enough”, says Lennart. “Our city was once the home town of music legends like Giorgio Moroder, who flooded Munich about four decades ago with their innovative sounds. We aim to fill the gap they left.”

The Munich-based musicians released their self-produced debut EP 'Change' on February 26th - all of the songs are avaialble to stream on their SoundCloud or you can download the EP from iTunes.
