It was roughly three weeks ago that Munich metal outfit Emergency Gate announced that they had recorded a song with 90s disco legend Haddaway – a cover of his world hit „What is Love“, igniting a lively discussion in the scene and making people wonder if these different musical styles would work well when combined into one song.
Right on time for the release of this new endeavor, Emergency Gate have managed to prove that it does indeed work.
This amalgamation of soulful vocals with electronic music, tough metal riffs and shouts by frontman Matthias Kupka – recorded, mixed and mastered in the Munich-based Dreamsound Studios – turned out to be a real jaw-dropper.
But it is best to hear for yourself!
You can get an impression of the recordings in the official video for “What is Love”.
The official premiere is at 5:45 pm CET: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mF7QpQspdVs
