Ki Records is a independent record label based in Cologne, Germany. Since 2009 Ki have built up a solid stem of international artists. Releases are diverse in sound and genre, but related in quality. Most of the Label’s musicians are somewhat involved in many disciplines of art. From the smallest detail in production, to the whole package – each release is a piece of art and because fine art looks best on a proper sized canvas of 12“, Ki releases it’s music primarily on Vinyl. To look at, feel, listen to and love. Ki Records have released music from Monokle, Christian Löffler, Steffen Kirchhoff, Daisuke Tanabe, Biodub and many more.
Christian Löffler serves up a deep mix featuring Pantha Du Prince, Ripperton, WhoMadeWho and discusses his new album ‘Mare’, released via Ki Records. He also speaks up about his upcoming audio-visual live show for Avant Garde in London.
We caught up with Christian Löffler to discover what exactly helped shape his new album ‘Young Alaska’ and how he compares it with his previous album ‘A Forest’. Christian has also compiled a 10 track downtempo mix tape featuring music from colo, Daughter, Dave DK, Rumpistol, Kiasmos and more.
Ahead of the release of colo’s album “UR” on Ki Records, home of Christian Löffler and Monokle, we sat down with the London based production duo to discuss the makings of the album and their musical heritage.
