Mr Käfer_press_byDavidHenselder

Austrian producer Mr. Käfer reflects on his North African roots with second single “Runaway” from the forthcoming EP “Orientation”. Runaway takes a you on a beautifully serene sonic exploration of delicately layered wind and string instruments. Beginning on gently on the keys, the ethereal shimmering vibrating around the key and drums creates a warming mood.

His forthcoming LP combines the Reflections and Orientation EP, with his reflections EP drawing upon his north African heritage. Throughout five songs Mr. Käfer reflects on his North-African roots (he is half Austrian, half Algerian) and instrumentation and arrangement influenced by his Algerian heritage. To orchestrate his vision Mr. Käfer has assembled a full band consisting of Makkako (guitar), Ruff I (double bass) and Christian Höll (Saxophone). Christian Höll has also co-written and co-produced the EP together with Mr. Käfer.

The Orientations/ Reflections LP will be out the 8th of May, you can head over to the melting pot website to purchase digital copies of the album here
