German electronic producer Christian Loffler has shared the animated video for ‘Like Water’, featuring Mohna.
It’s the first single from his forthcoming album Graal (Prologue) out on April 4 on Ki-Records.
The clip features the main character gazing out over the ocean as cathartic emotions emotions emerge as Loffler’s music takes the viewer on a solitary metaphysical journey. The video was directed by Magnus Lenneskog and Tezo Kyungdon Lee. Best known as the founders of he award-winning Tjoff Koong Studios, their work has been featured in the Wes Anderson film Isle of Dogs as well as several Gorillaz videos.
The new album is a reflection of his frustration at the time about not having the mental space at the time to create music. He instead focussed on visual art and the album is a reflection of that. Drawing gave him the chance to create without constraints or as he explained to, “turn off my brain a bit, especially thoughts about what is possible or not.”

DJ/producer/artist/activist Sofia Kourtesis has shared a free stream of her remix of Me Succeeds‘ ‘Cool Kids’, out now on Ki Records.
She took a unique approach to the track; recording her uncle’s voice, sampling it and playing it backwards; using it as the basis for her remix of the track.
“The Cool Kids remix is really energetic and playful, I thought about our new generation, these people who are young and cool on their own special unique form. Kids wanna change things and maybe save the world someday,” Kourtesis said in a statement.
She also offered another holiday gift to fans; a free stream of her holiday mix titled ‘Lonliness is My Friend’.
“This continuous mix is nostalgic and made to get your holiday dance on. The First Track is one that I did with Gold Panda
on a Christmas Day sometime ago.
I selected the artists not only because of their awesome production skills, but also because each one of them has also an eccentric style which I like. Björk is my hero, and her music and style is timeless and super unique. Billie Holiday will always be a hero and idol, she had such a strong character and voice.”
2016 was a year of transaction, changes and challenges, I really saw a lot of friends being lost about what is wrong and right. I think 2017 should be a year for heroes, and everyone should go outside to fight for what is right.
I tried to imagine what kind of songs I would like to hear at Christmas evening when I’m unpacking my presents,” she said in an e-mail.
