After many years of silence, creative mind and multi-disciplinary artist Lars Kemnitz returns with this new track under his DJ, selector and producer alias Kämmer. "Thinking of Distant Shores" took a long way from the very first draft to the final mix. Major inspiration came during travels to the island of Fuerteventura where the music video was shot as well. The rough and barren landscape, the tranquility the island radiates throughout, the melancholy felt when looking at the sea imagining the distant coast line of Morocco – all of that was reason enough for him to start producing again.
"Thinking of Distant Shores" is built upon a Dembow-inspired drum pattern and is driven forward by a huge warm synth pad at a relaxed tempo of 105 bpm.

Written and produced by Lars Kemnitz.
