Janek Sprachta is a Berlin based multiinstrumentalist, known for his drum works in the band Siva., in which he and Nils Frahm were playing together. Three years ago Sprachta released his first solo album, mastered by his bandmade and friend Nils Frahm.

After some years of experience in making music Sprachta recorded his second soloalbum called Grow. A little masterpiece that merges sounds from ambient, modern classic, post-rock and electronic music into a 40minutes soundjourney. Sprachta plays drums, guitar, piano and some other instruments creating his very own one-man-orchestra of experimental sounds (except of some cello sounds, played by Rahel Pötsch). Starting from fragile and quiet piano movements and ending up in a massive loud post-rockish soundwall.

“Grow” is one of the most not-drone-at-all albums of the Midira roster, but its mood fits perfectly into the soundcosmos of the label. The album sounds the best with a good portion of bass and middle volume on your hi-fi system, so it will take you on a smooth and warm soundtrip full of surprises.

Janek Sprachta will premiere the live version of “Grow” at the Moving Noises Festival in Bochum on 04.02.2017.

“Grow” comes as a 12inch vinyl. All white vinyl with printed labels, housed in a handmade silkscreenprinted gray cardboard sleeve including a coloured inlay. Limited to 100 copies.
