Hey-O-Hansen is a dub duo from Berlin. Helmut Erler and Michael Wolf are originally from Austria; their blend of folkloristic melodies from their home country with the bass-loaded echo chambers of Jamaican roots has been called Austrodub. In 2010, Pingipung put together a compilation called “Rare and Unreleased Austrodub Tracks” to express our love for the oeuvre of the duo. They have been pushing buttons in the Berlin underground scene since the year 2000, Helmut Erler being a mastering engineer at internationally renowned Dubplates & Mastering. “Die Sonn und Der Mond” was the exclusive unreleased track composed for the occasion of this digital compilation. It is now available on vinyl for the first time, reworked, mastered and cut by Helmut Erler into this 2018 version. Kazumi sings the vocals for the track, and her Japanese accent in the lullaby adds to the psychedelic vibe of this wonderful hit. On the B side edit, Helmut does the singing, in his Austrian tongue with a vocoder and his acoustic guitar. This single is a part of Pingipung’s ongoing Concentrical Series of 7’’ records. Previous contributions include Umeko Ando, Andi Otto, Ya Tosiba and Ion Din Dorobanti.
