Edwin Rosen drops euphoric ‘Verschwende deine Zeit (Lose your time)’
German electronic music and dance producer Edwin Rosen returns with his latest electrifying and rhythmic offering, Verschwende deine Zeit (Waste Your Time). As the fifth official release, the single marks a turning point in Rosen’s musical career, catapulting him from a relatively unknown chamber producer to a very popular and respected musician who has now recorded over 3 million streams for his previous single. ‘Leichter // kälter’, released in January 2021.
Creating music purely as a means of personal catharsis and pleasure, Rosen takes inspiration from Joy Division, Boy Harsher and Molchat Doma, calling his music “Neueneue Deutsche Welle” which loosely translates to “German New-New Wave”, his modern reimagining of new wave / post-punk music that arose out of West Germany in the 1980s, with heavy rock and electronic influences. This newly coined word is the only piece of information that can be found on Rosen’s Spotify biography, unlike many upcoming artists in their early twenties, Rosen prefers to keep her personal life out of the limelight and leave her music behind. speak for itself.
“You might not hear it now, but Blink-182 was a very important group to me. They made me want to make music on my own. “Through All Of This” on which Robert Smith sings, I then discovered The Cure. Also, I’m a skateboarder and have watched a lot of videos of skateboarders using songs from Cure or New Order. Then when I started making music I really wanted to be able to record everything on my own, that influenced the instrumentation a lot, of course. – Edwin Rosen
