REVIEW: Junge Junge - Run Run Run ft. Kyle Pearce incl remixes out on Universal Music Germany

Enduring ambitions have good prospects when they’re not compromised by vanity. With good reason, they say strength of purpose is the most important foundation to succeed in life. Although traditional virtues such as humility, patience, capability and faith in your own abilities might seem to lose their meaning in these modern times – for the producer duo Junge Junge these virtues built the foundation of their long journey to come. 

Even fate played a minor part in the story of Rochus Grolle and Michael Noack as both DJs saw each other during several gigs and, because the chemistry was right, they joined forces, creating Jung Junge and transfered this spirit into the studio. 

The rest isn’t just history. Even through their childhoods, both guys were connected by the common passion for (electronic) music. While Rochus took pleasure in compiling and playing music inspired by the record collection of his parents, Michael’s uncle’s love for reggae music roused his passion for grooves and rhythms. While one Junge got acquainted with the necessary harmonics and experimented with volume controls (and thereby laying the foundation for the art of DJing) the other Junge dove into the magic world of melodies, learning how to play acoustic instruments such as guitar and keyboard. 

With their first track „Why“ – that came into being in cooperation with singer Alex Landon – they proved how to utilize their years of experience in an impressive way. With its light-footed and acoustic-driven atmosphere, the piece was published next to songs by Stimming and „Howling“ by Ry & Frank Wiedemann on „Schneeweiß II“ - the compilation on Oliver Koletzki’s imprint Stil vor Talent.

Their second track „Beautiful Girl“, featuring singer Kyle Pearce, was the result of a spontaneous jam session during Helene Beach Festival in 2014. It immediately enchanted visitors with its feel-good aura, and quickly became a kind of secret hymn of the festival. What already sounds like a fairy tale was met by reality a bit later: during his vacation on Ibiza, Rochus gave the track to one local DJ spinning at a beach bar. The track was not only played out immediately, but was heard by the A&R manager of Universal Music Sweden. Right away he fell so deep in love with Junge Junge’s “Beautiful Girl” that he offered them a record deal the same day. Remixes are already in the pipeline by Blond:ish and Audiofly to be published on Berlin-based quality label Get Physical as their forthcoming debut album takes shape.

With confidence in their own talents the duo prove you can take control of your own destiny. What started as a common passion blossomed into a friendship living on blind faith and a positive philosophy about life in general – Junge Junge are soul brothers that infect listeners and party-goers alike with their unique vibe. The path of Junge Junge shows that happiness and willpower are not just synonyms, and even after all these years they never lost sight of their vision: music is love, freedom, passion and the universal language of the world.

I only lose my fear when I run run run
I won't lose a tear when I run run run
I won't find a heart so I run run run
And now the time is right so we run run run

Now it's summer time in the sun sun sun
One thing on my mind gun gun gun gun
When the children play it's fun fun fun
But I must go must run run run

We run run run
Run run run
Run run run
We run we run we run we run run run
We run we run we run
Run run run and run and run

Now I go to bed and cry cry cry
I pay the price I die die die

Run run run
Run run run
Run run run

Life was easy when I was young young young
Life was easy when I was young young young
Life was easy when I was young young young
Life was easy when I was young young young
