>Private.< is the debut album from Rebekka & Fox, a collaborative project by the singer andsongwriter Rebekka Brunow and DJ and producer Hannu Nieminen. The finished record is a balanced affair between modern electronic club sounds and ethereal wistful pop. Hannus visions meet Rebekkas melodies and lyrics in an effortlessly natural way. Despite the multitude of ideas, influences and genres, the result is solid and intriguing. The production techniques are refined, but they never suppress the unfiltered raw emotion. >Private.< is a moving album in all senses of the word.
Hannu, also known as Ender, is one of Helsinki's first and most recognized house and techno DJs. As a producer, he was previously a member of the groups Nuspirit Helsinki and hannulelauri. In recent years, Hannu has released plenty of solo material. One of his ambitions was to make a collaborative project with a vocalist.
Dreams met reality when Rebekka and Hannu were introduced by a fellow local DJ in 2013.
After a few studio sessions, it was clear that their interests were similar. They soon came up with a spontaneous way of writing material from scratch with fruitful results. After successfully completing somewhere around four tracks, it was clear there was going to be a whole album of Rebekka & Fox music.
