“Wasser means ‘Water’ in English. The reality is that everybody needs water, water is nature, water is real, it’s fresh and peaceful. All the tracks within this EP are very chill. We both love nature and this is where we find much of our inspiration. We worked on every track more than 6 hours, we sat together in the studio and drank Water, cause we’re both straight edge. We just live and want to spread love and nature.” Jazzo & Melodisinfonie”
