Spencer Colucy Love how the synth disintegrates on this song. Groovy Thom Yorke-esque electronica tunes. Favorite track: Twisted.

Changed 03:03
Tell me whats the point anyway, something wrong in the air who changed the light of the scene? who changed the light of the scene? there were serveral things whose surface pleased me but you changed the light of the scene but you changed the light of the scene some images are twisted, fractured and blured did you changed the light of the scene? did you changed the light of the scene? tell me what to do with all those bits and pieces did you changed the light of the scene? did you changed the light of the scene? there were serveral ways but I haven't find the right yet who changed the light of the scene? who changed the light of the scene? So I try the best I can Try the best I can in a different light scene in a different light scene
Topic 02:58
This string is too long I want to leave, do what you want change the topic, erase the sheet your distraction is something I don't need you and your conclusions they go to my head I shold take the plungee and run away from your chairs you might ask for an purpose well I got none no got none I gont none
Twisted 02:40
This is twisted, nervous twisted
Institutions 03:07
Wasted time and lost thoughts long corridors and closed doors where is the gap? I stumble up the steps the car lost it's wheels where is my time? And it feels like an fulstop still on the wrong side of the floor I remember your Invatiotion Your friendly smile but enough is enough I filled all contracts and solved all your tasks collected my points You send us home with nothing more then empty sheets
False Friend 03:10
Take the pocketlight where is your blind spot it's less obvious hidden in the shadows Take the pocketlight this point is not on your map it's hidden in the shadows this is a False Friend
Restless 03:34
I am restless, I am antsy, the same circuit, electrified Mr. Restless, you take, three directions, at the same time You try to catch it I am restless, I am antsy, all controllers, denied their work they have cut, the wire, know you it, know it You try to catch it


Simon Raymond, Amazing Radio:
"and I have to say that's a very exciting sound David is making"

Ted Rogen, The Equal-Ground:
"The music he makes on its recent release Institutions is warm down beat mostly electronic music that is not unlike Thom Yorke’s solo project or Four Tet. He strategically mixes glitches, bleeps, pads, string and his voice into very atmospheric music that spews out warmth."

Suzie Kidger,
"While this EP won’t have you dancing around your bedroom or be home to your new favourite party anthem, ‘Institutions‘ is a bit like looking through a kaleidoscope, you’ll just never know what you’re going to see next. With this EP comes curiosity and and an element of warm, welcoming tones. It’ll fit nicely into your playlist and help you daydream into the ever so slightly delirious." Musikzimmer:
"Present Paradox gibt es erst seit diesem Jahr. Die erklärten Vorbilder Radiohead und vorallem den Sänger Thom Yorke, die hört man allerdings schon deutlich heraus. Genau das richtige also für graue Tage im Herbst"

Present Paradox Germany

"Dortmund based German artist David Kleinekottman who is clearly as prolific as he is talented. Ambient, experimental, art house and electronica in scope and influenced by Brian Eno, Elbow and Radiohead. I’d say those signposts mark Present Paradox out for closer inspection"
