Christian Löffler has always been a producer with a keen relationship for his surroundings.
The electronic musician allows these landscapes - both external and internal - to guide his music, taking him towards some unexpected places.
With new album 'Lys' though, he yearns for the familiar. Out on March 20th via Ki Records, it was constructed entirely at his home studio in Northern Germany.
“I realised that the light is different in the north of Germany, and this became an overall theme for the album,” he explains. “Before I had Mare, and Forest, and now it’s become light...”
Allowed to work at his own pace, Christian Löffler brings his fastidious nature of enquiry to the fore on the incoming album.
'Lys' actually means 'light' in Danish, and these themes are certainly explored on beautiful new piece 'Versailles'.
'Versailles' is built around that slumped beat, the spacious arrangement dominated by fractured electronics to let the light seep through.
Vocal murmurations rise and fall, while the full video features faces and figures shrouded in shadow.
