Mixtape Vol. 1


LP version. Includes download code. To those familiar with the output of Cologne-based imprint Firm from back in the early '00s, the name of Geiger, alias Nass, shall undoubtedly ring a bell. Herald of a hedonistic mélange of funk-soaked electro pop and guitar-riddled synth music, sitting somewhere close to acts like Ween and Junior Boys, Alexander Geiger is about to break an eight-year hiatus with the drop of his debut album under the newly-founded moniker of Fahrland. A release that both encompasses a healthy dose of the discoid tropes from the Firm era but also aspires to split with a segment of it, geared towards exploring further undisclosed fringes of his shape-shifting sound universe, Mixtape Vol.1 is the fruit of a decisive move from the sleepless Berlin to the peaceful countryside landscapes of Fahrland -- a lushly forested area near Potsdam which you'll have understood played an essential role in Geiger's longed-for return. Versatile and inclusive, the album sweeps a polyamorous gamut of styles and tempos like an answer to the virtual prisons that inhibit us on a daily basis, straying away from normative standards and classic full-length calibration as a result. Instead weaving a singular narrative course, clear from all type of shackles and chains, Geiger navigates on sight, reflecting on notions as wide and universal as freedom, friendship and love across a multiversal patchwork of sounds and feels. From the languid sexy vibe of "Beggin", "Plastic People" and "Yesterday" -- all three featuring the sensual whispers of multi-talented vocalist and artist MZ Sunday Luv, through the heavily vocodered, chip-implemented groove of "I AM ROBOT" -- reminiscent of Telex and Space Art, Balearic jazz and rap shine of "Sky So High", smoky lounge ambience of "L AND H" onto broader ambient-friendly spans such as "Suspension", "Windshield Gently Wipers", and the smooth, sun-basking closer "Get Down", each track holds a fragile cocooned world at its heart.
