"Although they’ve regularly worked on each other’s projects for over half a decade, 2020’s ‘Contact’ represented the first time that Spanish producer Pepo Galán and Berlin-based choreographer Sita Ostheimer have formally collaborated. Ostheimer’s glassy vocals are perfectly counterpointed by Galán’s electronics."

"'Contact' is a collaboration between prolific Spanish producer Pepo Galán from Malaga (El Muelle Records) and Berlin-based choreographer Sita Ostheimer. The pair have collaborated in one way or another since 2015; Galan having composed music for her dance creations, and Ostheimer recording her delicate vocals for several of his solo albums. Ostheimer's evocative vocal delivery is perfectly accompanied by Galan's mellowed neo-classical tones and restrained flourishes of electronics, for an altogether seductive and poignant listening experience."
