Praise for debut single:
Mixmag – 4 /5
Radio play from BBC Radio 1, XFM, NME Radio, Ministry of Sound
Ludwig Amadeus’ follow-up to the hugely popular ‘God Only Knows My Shoe Size’ will be released this March 7th through Size 9 Records. The debut received a lot of radio and press attention with plays on Radio 1, XFM, Kiss, NME, Ministry of Sound and play-listing on many regional stations. The track also got 4/5 stars in Mixmag. Since then he's been preparing a string of 5 single releases and perfecting his live set with plenty of appearances across London.
German born yet British bred Ludwig Amadeus is a London based songwriter and producer who effortlessly crafts songs with pop funk electro house and jazz tinged beats. After being up for 3 days straight (a method he frequently uses to write), Ludwig recorded the awesome 'Don't Wanna Feel This' in collaboration with fellow producer Mickey P. It's about a weird phenomenon he's had since he was 5. Sometimes, when falling asleep, he sees a flash of light and feels shockwaves run through his whole body, like electricity but not painful; just a very strange sensation.
Amadeus described the whole recording process as with Mickey P as ‘a very creative experience’, counting this single as probably the deepest he has ever worked on. It was written over a year ago, and recent months have seen the track carefully fine-tuned, Amadeus keen to avoid over-production. DWFT is a genius in its sparseness and simplicity – a great offering from a new and exciting artist.
