A Little Night Music, or Eine Kleine Nacht Musik, is the exceptionally wonderous, cosmically exquisite new project for Henry Smithson, also known as Riton. Eine Kleine Nacht Musik is a blissful trip down the autobahn circa 1974, a genius meeting of motorik rhythm and shimmering atmospherics, of churning basslines and tripped out sitar, relentless drums and drifting synths. In the spirit of the Krautrock forefathers and their synth pioneering mothers, Modular is ridiculously proud to be bringing you the self-titled Eine Kleine Nacht Musik record very soon…….

From the horse's mouth:
"ive got a new album coming out in July on Modular records.
its gonna be under my new moniker of 'eine kliene nachtmusik'
its my trip in the kosmiche world of 1970s Germany
influenced by great bands such as kraftwerk, neu and the like
there will be a 12" only single out next month to wet the appetite"

Still not convinced? Check out his remix of Hercules and Love Affair's You Belong:
