Listen to the track ‘Bodies Meld Together’ from the Brooklyn-based producer Octo Octa.  Its from the veteran underground house and IDM artist’s recently released (Mar 1st 2019) EP titled “For Lovers”…..and already its received some good press from the likes of  FADER….and why not if you have a weak spot for borderline lofi, dreamy and dark synths to dance with.

“‘Bodies Meld Together’ is a song about physically connecting with the people you love” explains Maya Bouldry-Morrison, aka Octo Octa. “I believe that connection is a deeply integral part of creating bonds and trust with them. It’s about sharing an experience of becoming one with them and having that experience carry on. Love is important and showing that love to your partners in important. It lets you all become a stronger force together.”

German Electronic Music Producer Christian Löffler Announces New LP “Graal (Prologue)” plus tour dates updated – new video

Yesterday (Feb 8th) German electronic producer and visual artist Christian Löffler announced the release of his new LP “Graal (Prologue)” out 4/5/2019 on Ki-Records. Its his ninth release and first full release since 2016’s Mare – and his third full album overall.

The upcoming full album was created on the road and according to Löffler, he likens it to a travel diary. Listening to “Graal (Prologue)” expect an oscillation between melancholic ambient minimal, euphoric neo-classical techno and downtempo psychedelic. Its also a reflection of Christian’s frustration of not having the mental space at the time to create music, solely focusing on visual art instead – painting, drawing. Drawing from his art gave him the freedom to create without restraints, and to “turn off my brain a bit, especially thoughts about what is possible or not”, he explains. The record is also named after the town he calls home and described as “a windswept yet picturesque German outpost on the Baltic coast – and the rugged beauty and wonder of the area’s famed landscapes shines through the whole record.” It comes illustrated with a series of Löffler’s hand drawn sketches, stark, monochromatic line drawings of people and places.

He discusses more about his newest album.

In addition he also released the single “Like Water”. Speaking of the single, it was created while sound checking at the Elbphilharmonie. Mohna (the vocalist) was improvising and singing different melodies while playing piano. We played this track often with the ensemble, but never recorded it. The finished piece has completely changed from its initial acoustic version.” says Christian.
