Located on the banks of the Rhine, Westerwald sounds like a far flung fantasy kingdom. Well known for its idyllic scenery and mountainous landscapes, the German region regularly provides inspiration for the likes of Dominik Eulberg, Gabriel Ananda and now Tim Engelhardt.
The shining status alongside his illustrious peers is testament to Tims talent. At seventeen he released Everything Is All You Have on Steve Bugs Poker Flat label and he returned late last year with the excellent Enigmatism EP. He’s also showcased his skills on Parquet, Babiczstyle and, most recently, Upon.You. Here we find him upping the ante once more with an impressive debut on Joris Voorn & Edwin Oostwals GREEN imprint.
His trademark expansive melodic structures and exquisite use of harmonies are in evidence again as were wowed by the spine-tingling beauty of Pan and blown away by the intricate, wonderful and aptly titled Trabant.
