Remixes

Emotikon

A journey through musical genres - from new wave pop to French house, hard rock and bossa nova. Emotikon's songs like you've never heard them before.

German-Japanese synthpop duo "Emotikon" released their self-titled debut album in 2012 via CDBaby. Keen on experimenting with their material and broadening their musical horizon, they decided to put a new spin on their songs one year later. The result is the "Remixes" album.
