The LA producer has teamed up with the vocalist for a full album due out next February.
John Tejada and Kimi Recor will release their first album as Bavaria on February 11th.
Recor, whom you might know as the vocalist for The Invisibles, has been a frequent collaborator with John Tejada, an LA-based producer, Kompakt signee and the boss of Palette Recordings. Though their relationship dates back to 2004, We'll Take A Dive is the duo's first full-length endeavour together. It's also their first under the name Bavaria, a name inspired by their shared German and Austrian heritage. The album's backing tracks were composed and produced entirely by Tejada (a known hardware buff) with no "extraneous instruments," according to a press release. The record will come out on Oakland-based n5MD, which has also been a home to artists like Arovane and Bvdub in recent years.
You can download opening track "We Break Through" here, and you can listen to an RA Exchange podcast Tejada with us earlier this year here.
