KLANGPLANET – ‘Stars’

Frieder -(KLANGPLANET)

For a while now, German producer KLANGPLANET – aka Frieder Mollat – has been a reliable source of nocturnal, brooding house-inspired wizardry.

However, with his latest gift, new single ‘Stars’, Mollat offers a slightly different flavour to his usual late-night electronic ambiance. Taking more of a casual, lyric-driven approach to lounging downtempo, ‘Stars’ drifts by with an ease and breeze as melancholic but hopeful vocals are set to a glistening backdrop. Lush strings mingle with drifting guitar, steady beat and a bubbling positivity. Indisputably glowing, ‘Stars’ is a wholly irresistible and elegant piece of laid-back electronica.

For a while now, German producer KLANGPLANET – aka Frieder Mollat – has been a steady source of nocturnal, brooding house-inspired wizardry. Not one to break with tradition, Mollat has floated back onto our horizon with selenological new single, ‘Starlight’.

Lifted from his new EP Electronic Universe, an EP to commemorate his solo adventures, ‘Starlight’ a mellow, late-night, atmospheric jam. It certainly feeds into his pre-established predilection for minimal vibes, meticulously merged with field-recordings from different surroundings he aims to create a musical journey and alluring sound mélange. Stylistically speaking, it is his deft touch working in tandem with a preference for organic field recording that marks his chilled, downtempo works out from the crowd. Adding piano and guitar’s to the entrancing spectacle leaves us with a beautiful melodic downtempo effect with a deep house flavour. This is vivid, cinematic and immersive – music to get lost in if you will, and escapism at its very finest. Enjoy the trip.

German producer KLANGPLANET – aka Frieder Mollat – is back with another taste of his dusky, brooding house-inspired beats, in the shape of new single ‘Memories’.

Although his output stretches back to the mid ’90s, 2017 and KLANGPLANET marked a personal milestone as he embarked on his solo adventure and the fleeting steps of which, being his aptly titled and wonderful debut EP, Electronic Journey. Back to the here and now, ‘Memories’ continues this fine form with a meticulously crafted cinematic electronic treat.

Retro yet futuristic, this fascinatingly imaginative and richly developed passage portrays an impressive ambience, of an impressive, yet quite dark, vision of the place where dreams and reality coexist. It’s an immersive aural adventure of epic proportions that is vivid and cinematic in scope as we are whisked away on a quest to a place where video games and movies cohabit, rendering the perfect backdrop for the driving beats, kicks, slow-motion builds, epic riffs and synths to combine and create an incredible sense of wonderment and adventure. ‘Memories’ prompts the mind to envisage colourful flashbacks to numerous ’80s action movies and 8-bit adventure games – smooth, cool and feels a little dangerous. It not only unequivocally excels in inducing a severe case of nostalgia but it feels rather forward thinking and futuristic too. All in all, a masterfully pieced together release from beginning to end.
