Monday Mixtape: Fahrland
blue is the warmest color xtended
Last Friday saw the release of “Mixtape Vol.1“, the long-awaited return of Alexander Geiger under his new alias Fahrland on Kompakt. His new album is on heavy rotation since it hit our office a few weeks back, which led us to write a pretty euphoric review:
“Remember the times when electronic music was this free-floating beast? When pop and dance and ambient and funk references were equal partners to a fundamental passion for the rather obscure? When a constantly shape-shifting sound universe wasn’t connected to arbitrariness but to a fully-formed creative spirit? Well, Alexander Geiger’s return under a new moniker after an eight-year hiatus pays tribute to exactly that - and the result hardly couldn’t be a more satisfying one.“
Aforementioned constantly shape-shifting sound universe plays an essential role in Geiger's entry to our Monday Mixtape series as well, which delivers a colourful and predominantely mellow bouquet of favourite songs of his that gives the audience a brief insight into his musical socialization. All niced out. Enjoy.
