Space and time both play a role in pølaroit’s music. A felt connection to Jonas and Marius’ hometowns in Northern Germany, their geography, as well as a sense of pertaining to a specific instant in time, a generation, are both expressed in the duo’s strain of melodic deep house. The chosen name for the duo, pølaroit, is a reference to this idea of capturing a moment and it tributes both their northern roots (Polar) as well as the birthplace of techno (Detroit). Jonas and Marius, both in their mid-twenties, grew up near Hanover - yet it was only in 2018 that they crossed paths for the first time. When both met at a Christmas market in Hanover, after one too many cups of glühwein, they set a studio date just for fun. From that first day it became immediately clear to both that Jonas’ melancholic piano melodies weaved themselves seamlessly to Marius buoyant beats.
Opposite the Nordkette with its bizarre rocky peaks, the gentle crest of the Patscherkofel rises to the south of Innsbruck. With its 2,246-meter peak and the many alpine pastures and huts, the area around the Patscherkofel is a highly recommended hiking and biking region in the immediate vicinity of the Tyrolean capital. The 'home mountain' of many Innsbruck residents is also perfectly accessible by public transport. Unlike the rugged and rocky Karwendel, the area around the Patscherkofel is characterized by a gentle alpine landscape with wide meadows, rustic huts and extensive forests. From the summit, you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Nordkette mountain range opposite, into the Stubaital and on to the Brenner mountains. On the 'Kofel' - as the locals affectionately call it - you can go in summer and winter.
