German producer, DJ, and artist Christian Löffler continues to bend the boundaries between music and art space with a heart-tugging single, ‘The End (ft. Josephine Philip)’. The track marks the second single ahead of his much-anticipated fourth album Lys, which is slated for release on March 20th. ‘The End (ft. Josephine Philip)’ is out today via Löffler’s imprint, Ki Records.
‘The End’ kicks off as a beautiful soundscape of ambient chords that merge in a reverberating sea. It slowly cascades into the emergence of vocals, singing the piece’s chorus, “in the end, it’s all you”. Following an isolated iteration of the delicate lyric, his signature muffled four-to-the-floor bass kick is introduced. Painting a melancholic picture, the heartfelt words create emotions that aptly collide with beautiful sounds. Re-introducing the chorus, a bass synth swirls with descending synth hits, giving the track direction. The second verse completes the cut, bringing in more backbeats, percussion, and a full-bodied bass kick. Reverting to simplicity with just a kick and ambient chords, the piece fades out subtly – leaving room for meditation.
