The KDMS – Kinky Dramas and Magic Stories (CD album)

The ’Indie disco answer to Adele’ and ‘The key band of the New Disco scene”. That’s how The KDMS have been described.

Yes – there is a lot of buzz around Kathy Diamond‘s and Max Skiba‘s band. And if you listen to their debut album you will understand why. A band that connects today’s club music with amazing song writing and the unique voice of great Soul Diva.

Pop, underground, forward thinking and retro at the same time. Music that catches you immediately. That’s probably why they became a favorite of some big pop artists of today. For example: Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip. He teamed up with Justus Köhncke from Kompakt and they did a cover version of the new single “Wonderman”. (On the album). Also the rework that Morgan Geist from Metro Area did for a song is so huge that we have put it on the album.
But… we are talking to much! You have to hear this yourself!
