Soft and isolated sounding electronica filled with field sampling, simple and beautful melodies and organic textures, for his second album Christian Löffler moved away from sample based production and recorded everything himself, capturing his space and producing organically. With four tracks featuring long time collaborator Mohna who brings a Coco Rosie/Sea Oleena lullaby like quality to the tracks.

8/10 Jamie Staff review, 03 November 2016

Hello. Meet Christian. Christian makes beautifully light electronica: organic sounding and feathery at the edges. And soft and fluffy in the middle. He made his second album whilst under the influence of the shadows of willow trees on the wooden interior of his log cabin on the Baltic (seriously, check out the press release. Even if that’s a succinct summary). He called this record ‘Mare’, which is funny ‘cos it’s more dreamlike. See what I did there…

Opening track ‘Myiami’ has the nicely warm and pulsating electronica of the sort I associate with Jon Hopkins. It leads into the very pretty ‘Haul’ which features Mohna and her layered, haunting vocal reminiscent of CocoRosie. The darker shades and textures on ‘Mosaics’ -- with its synth stabs, spliced beats and voice -- recall parts of the excellent ‘Potential’ by the Range which came out earlier this year. An atmosphere of yearning melancholy rings through the record, which particularly chimes through the aching strings and woodwind touches on instrumental tracks ‘Neo’ and ‘Krone’.

Lush and slightly sad soundscapes predominate on the record, with the softest moments featuring the tenderest of skeletal piano melodies (‘Youth’) overlaid with gossamer-like field recordings. Mohna is back on the album’s title track with her childlike soft voice carefully treading a melodic path over Loeffler’s swaying rhythm. Beats pulse on the atmos-house of ‘Athlete’ and ‘Silk’. A delicious record with many highlights
