After setting the release date for his highly anticipated album, Graal (Prologue), German deep-house producer Christian Löffler announced dates of his European tour.
Löffler’s music has been streamed over 55 million times and the artist has performed alongside notable acts like alt-J, Bonobo, The Glitch Mob, JUNGLE, Noisia, Nick Murphy fka Chet Faker, Son Lux, Axwell ∆ Ingrosso, Hardwell, and ZHU at renowned festivals worldwide. The Graal (Prologue) tour will provide the unique ambiences the prolific musician and producer has become well known for through his live performances and the spectacular locations they’re set in.
Joining Christian Löffler on tour is Janus Rasmussen, one half of the critically acclaimed minimal techno duo Kiasmos. Rasmussen will be performing tracks from his solo debut album Vín, released on the 8th of March. Vín, released via Löffler’s Ki Records, was recorded in the Rasmussen’s Reykjavik studio and luminously explores new soundworlds within the realm of experimental minimal techno. Although drawing on his experience and influences with Kiasmos, Rasmussen’s solo album Vín pushes the boundaries of the sound the artist has become known for with raw- sounding downtempo tracks.
Christian Löffler’s newest album, released on April 5th via his own imprint Ki Records, employs his signature melancholic sound and continues to draw on the importance of his physical surroundings as inspiration. Named after the town he resides in, Graal (Prologue), contains music that was created in a period where Löffler was constantly away on tour – sketches of melodies written on the road. The resulting six tracks on the album have a minimal and focused feel, and are also accompanied by Christian Löffler’s own art; a series of hand-drawn monochromatic sketches that served as inspiration for the music.
