Leafar Legov is a quiet but essential member of the Giegling family. He and Konstantin were making music together in Hannover before the label formed – today, they are Kettenkarussell, a live act and production outfit whose bittersweet sound embodies Giegling’s ineffable ethos. On his solo records, he offsets ambient sketches with somber hip-hop instrumentals.
Small-scale festivals usually focus on proportionate lineups, trying to offer a homogeneic musical journey, but Waking Life’s approach felt different, scattering 70+ acts across three dance floors. The overall Waking Life experience was one of constant discovery and wonder.

With ’Cenote’ Leafar Legov doesn’t stray far from his comfort zone. Decking out an hypnotic roll of chiselled percussions within visually-evocative nature-scapes as seesawing synth accents and dubby ripples instill a further languid touch to the solemn profoundness of Legov’s production.
On June 27th, Kann will be releasing “Avocado Dreams”, a vaporous four-tracker featuring tracks from Giegling staple Leafar Legov, multi-talented producer Matt Karmil, Kann co-founder Bender and local newcomer Mary Yalex.
