Christian Löffler x Nathan Fake Reveal New Single ‘ROTH’ + Nathan Fake Remix
In March this year, Christian Löffler released Lys, an album recorded and compiled in the serenity of his home studio.
After the first rework by Roman Flügel, Christian Löffler now invites UK electronic music artist, Nathan Fake to add his own colours to Lys’ track Roth (feat. Mohna). Dark drone sounds characterize Löffler’s track which also features vocalist and long time collaborator Mohna. Nathan has preserved the mysterious element of Roth, all the while speeding up and intensifying the beats and creating a fast, thumping electro-dance tune.
“I guess I wanted to take the remix in a pretty different direction from the original, so I started by making an original beat out of a mixture of my sounds and Christian’s. It ended up being a kind of strange half techno, half breakbeat kind of thing with the snare triggering the kick.” -Nathan Fake
Nathan Fake is a British electronic producer whose lush, moody recording range from atmospheric tech-house to vivid, shoegaze-influenced down-tempo. Growing up in Norfolk and attending a school where being into music made you an outsider, his early interest in the electronic scene came from hearing acts like Aphex Twin and Orbital. Having begun to acquire and experiment with his own gear, an encounter with James Holden led him to align with the then fledgling label Border Community. This relationship continued with further EP releases leading to his breakthrough debut album “Drowning In A Sea Of Love”, released in 2006 to widespread international praise.
“Next to Roman Flügel, Nathan was my absolute dream candidate for the remix. I have been enthusiastic about his music for many years. After seeing him live at Melt Festival, we started to exchange ideas from time to time. At the time, his ambient set for the album ‘Drowning in a sea of love’ totally surprised and flashed me.” -Christian Löffler
