Young Alaska by Christian Löffler

Just before the arrival of summer this year, Christian Löffler releases his next musical statement and autobiographical journey named “Young Alaska”.

The German producer unveils his unique soundscapes by delivering eight tracks which are deeply rooted, once again, in harmony and emotion. He sticks to his calm approach to electronic music and proves, through his live-sets, that emotions control the dance floor, creating a real sense of euphoria. During the course of “Young Alaska”, he tells the story of his journey over the course of the past two years.

Christian Löffler – Young Alaska

Bleep states:

"…Young Alaska is arguably his finest work to date, distilling a stirring, mood-rich take on techno, ghostly vocals and crackling, delicate beats pulled onto dance floor templates. 'Notes' revolves around mournfully fluttering vocals and crisp but light percussion, building a soulful odyssey that, while it pulsates with the steady thump of club music, is far more geared towards the heart and head. The gritty strings and pinging synths that carry the opening title track are hypnotising, while the spiralling electronics of 'Mt. Grace', underpinned by sighing voices, is strangely moving. 'Beirut' is probably the album's most club-focused moment, glimmering pads creating a tightly wound atmosphere. The lulling piano chords of 'All Comes' provide further ambivalent, electronic emotion. All in all, it's an unusual but moving album, techno tropes used to create dark but soulful music."
