Damiano von Erckert has teamed up with fellow Cologne producer Tito Wun for an album called Mr. Pink, What Have You Been Smokin'?
Along with Murat Tepeli and Funkycan, von Erckert is one of the main artists behind ava., a deep house label that's put out a handful of well-received EPs and mini-compilations since it launched in 2011. Tito Wun, who also goes by the name Twit One, typically makes breezy hip-hop instrumentals. On Mr. Pink..., the duo don't actually collaborate per se—the album features five solo productions from each artist—but nonetheless combine their different sensibilities and try out a few new things as well, delivering a blend of house, disco, hip-hop and soul.
