The German artists Isola Music have shared with us “Helenko”, a track animated by an absolutely thick vocal that – together with the electronic base – creates a truly enchanting noir atmosphere.
“This song is the intro-song for ‘Crime Time’ – a very popular true-crime series on the german tv-station ARD. Every month there is a new true-crime case with three episodes. The song was a co-production between the jazz-singer Insa Rudolph and Isola Music – a film composer duo from Hamburg. The TV-station was looking for a darker – tension building intro, so we decided to compose a song with strong roots to trip hop and indie electronic. Also Insa came up with the emotional choir take that echoes the suffering of the crime victims”, Isola Music told us.
