KLANGPLANET is the moniker of German producer Frieder Mollat.
While Mollat’s work extends back to the mid ’90s, 2017 and KLANGPLANET marks a personal milestone embarking on his solo adventure with he first steps of which, being his aptly titled debut EP, Electronic Journey. KLANGPLANET’s preference is for the chilled, downtempo and meticulously crafted electronic flavours, which are merged with field-recordings from different surroundings to produce an alluring sound collage and musical journey. His latest single ‘Island’ is a prime example with its ambient beats, deep house grooves and relaxing sound of seagulls and lapping waves; delivered with an unwavering precision it is transfixing and tranquil in equal measure. With its lush approach, ‘Downtown’ is so laid-back and chill it is almost a lullaby (even the sound of distance emergency sirens can’t break its spell). Add to that some some lapping waves and pattering beats, you may quickly find yourself destined for the land of nod. This is vivid, cinematic and immersive; music to get lost in, escapism at its very finest.
