There is a saying: “Two hearts are better than one”. For Germans producers Christian Löffler and Fejká it is not an exception, as they are set to deliver their first collaboration.
They both produce emotionally charged electronic music that infuses a sense of longing and nostalgia into usually complex electronica, and they are also highly influenced by the abounding natural beauty of their respective environments – the Black Forest and the Baltic Sea coast. Because of their similar musical tastes, Christian Löffler requested Fejká to become a member of the Ki Records family. Since then, they have performed on stage together several times while on tours and at festivals that they have headlined. The song Fjäll, on which they collaborated, is the most recent evidence of their kinship and the compatibility of their soundscapes.
The creators’ frequent communication and custom of providing constructive criticism for one another’s work gave rise to Fjäll. Fejká added fun build-ups and drops to Löffler’s atmospheric textures after getting an initial demo of the song from the producer.
The word “Fjäll” in Old Norse refers to a tall, desolate terrain feature that is most frequently encountered in Scandinavia and Northern European nations like Iceland and Scotland. The track’s evocative field sounds and beats that never finish conjure up the expanse and space of the terrain itself. Listeners are instantly transported to a peaceful realm of seclusion by the gentle synth washes and hushed voices. On Fjäll, Fejká and Christian Löffler’s synergy is so strong that it’s difficult to tell where one of their contributions ends and the other one begins, resulting in a completely natural and intensely emotional experience.
