High-end 2024 – Exclusive partnership with Mandoki Soulmates

The organiser of the trade fair in the Bavarian metropolis, High End Society Service GmbH, is delighted to announce a unique partnership with the band Mandoki Soulmates for High End 2024 in Munich.

Story Highlights
  • High End Society Service GmbH is convinced that the partnership between High End 2024 and Mandoki Soulmates stands for diversity in audio.

For several years now, High End Society Service GmbH, the organiser of the world’s leading trade fair in Munich, has been focusing on exclusive partnerships with artists in order to deliberately create a direct link between music and the solutions that serve to reproduce music in the best possible way. Artists are also to become ambassadors of fine sound, whose appeal extends beyond the HiFi scene itself and thus appeals to a broader target group.

This year at High End 2024, High End Society Service GmbH is proud to announce a very special partnership with Leslie Mandoki and his band Mandoki Soulmates.

Long live diversity in audio

It is interesting to note that High End Society Service GmbH says that the partnership with Leslie Mandoki is a new way of cooperating with world-famous artists and is intended to emphasise the motto of this year’s trade fair in Munich. From 9 to 12 May 2024, High-end 2024 will be all about “Long live diversity in audio”.

An expression of a shared commitment to diversity in the audio world

A key aspect of the partnership between High End Society Service GmbH and Leslie Mandoki is that it goes much further than previous partnerships with artists at the High End in Munich. It is also emphasised that this is much more than just a PR campaign.

This partnership was sealed last January at the Red Rock Production Studios on Lake Starnberg, according to the company.

The successful producer will of course be personally present at the High-end 2024 in Munich and will give insights into his latest Mandoki Soulmates album, which is entitled “A Memory Of Our Future” and will be officially released on 10 May 2024, at an exclusive press event.

A special feature of this album is that it was recorded and produced entirely in analogue, making it a perfect fit for the trade fair for the finest sound from a purely technical perspective.

The general public will also be able to see this for themselves at High-end 2024, as the album will of course be available on site and can be signed directly by the artist at the Mandoki Soulmates merchandise stand as part of a planned meet-and-greet event.

“The connection with Leslie Mandoki and the Soulmates is more than just a partnership for us. It is a shared mission to celebrate diversity in the world of audio experience. Like our trade fair, Mandoki’s music unites people from different cultures and generations. Leslie itself stands for innovation, creativity and musical excellence – values that the High-end also represents one hundred per cent.”

Getting to the point

The motto of High End 2024 is “Long live diversity in audio”, and this will be communicated to the public through an exclusive partnership between High End Society Service GmbH, the organiser of the trade fair, and Leslie Mandoki and his band Mandoki Soulmates. It is therefore fitting that the Mandoki Soulmates’ latest album “A Memory Of Our Future” should be released just in time for the trade fair in Munich and presented at it, especially as it is a purely analogue production that fits in perfectly with an event that rightly claims to set the undisputed tone for first-class music reproduction.
