PLATRONIC are Finnish composer/producer Some-E and German singer-songwriter and co-producer Kay Burden (“3rd best female artist 2019”, Radio Wigwam Awards, UK).

What started with chatting about electronic music on Instagram in 2019 and the idea of collaborating in the foreseeable future, surprisingly turned into a real duo on EBM DAY – 24 February 2020!

Since End of March 2023 – five self released singles, one EP, two nominations for “Best Newcomer” later and after entering “Deutsche Alternative Charts” several times plus a triumphant live performance as warm-up for Swedish Synthrocker PRIEST in Helsinki – Platronic is a proud and happy member of the Town and Towers Records Family. A Danish Label and Music Management, focused on synth music.

Like Kay and Sami… but now they can finally focus more on doing it! Synthmusic of course!!!

STYLE: Sinfully elegant Dreampop with deeper meaning spiced up with danceable electronic beats and topped with velvety female vocals.

INFLUENCES: ABBA, Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, Pet Shop Boys, VNV Nation.

MISSION: To create danceable, dreamy, daring sounds and melodies mixed with poetic – and sometimes critical – lyrics that are etched into the memory.

“…when singer Kay’s gentle interpretation supported the atmosphere so well, I couldn’t help but surrender to the music.”

Kaaoszine, Finland

“…echoes of German pioneers can be heard… strongly melodic… catchy, durable and danceable in a futuristic way…”
