Since their founding, autumn of 2005, QEK Junior, from Simmern, have developed themselves to one of the most promising acts of the booming European Minimal and Elektro-Wave scene. This project, of former „The House Of Usher “ guitar player Dominic Daub (singer/programmer) and his companionTobias Dupont (technique & effects) creates smooth, minimalistic, but highly danceable songs that would have reached easily top positions in the early eighties international pop charts. Despite recognizable parallels to the ones like “DAF “,”The Invincible Spirit” and maybe early “Clan Of Xymox”,QEK Junior achieved to cultivate a completely own and characteristic sound. No wonder that, the in Minimal circles highly renowned, “Kernkrach“ label signed the band immediately and released their debut EP which got positive reviews all over the world and sold out almost instantly.
In February 2009, Dance Macabre released their first full album “Ausverkauf” on which QEK Junior stayed loyal to their hypnotic sound. Although the increased danceability of the new tracks, they still manage to stay as far away from today’s “Powernoise” and “Futurepop” clichés.
Probably this is one of the reasons why the international press picked up QEK Junior and gave them praising critics.
After a packed try-out gig one of our Minimal >< Maximal night at Bar Mondial, Antwerp, and their impressive concert at BIMFEST 2009 proved that QEK Junior is ready to conquer the rest of the world!
In December 2011 their long awaited second studio album "Druzhba" was released and in addition to a strictly limited edition vinyl version the album is also available worldwide for download via the popular sites like Amazon or iTunes.
