After hitting the stages of numerous clubs and festivals with their impressive live act, electronica duo AFAR deliver the 12th EP of Vienna’s Heimlich Musik – with Oberst & Buchner and Geju on remix duty. “Lulled and Fake” is a freshly unique piece of music consisting of dark analog synth lines and accentuated guitar notes that create a rich and powerful surface for vocals using a broad spectrum of the harmonic scale. Created in an attic in the middle of nowhere, complex rhythms are guiding the journey exploring the discrepancy between a human being’s inner soul and the constant need for self-promotion in a digital world of superficiality.
Heimlich’s own Oberst & Buchner are extending the original mix by laying down classic acid lines and arpeggiator parts while sticking to the main theme as a storyline. A stripped-down drum kit leaves just enough space for the duo’s trademark hypnotic vibe to evolve through the re-imagined arrangement.
The third duo featured on the EP is Geju from Moscow, delivering the second remix for “Lulled and Fake”. Their remix is based on the guitar parts while a playful rhythm is created by blending drum parts from the original mix with their own unique style. As a result, Geju transform the original mix into one of their own creations of recognizable value with the potential to create special moments on the dance floor.
