Heft’s work is based on everyday-life situations that give the impressions of simplicity that hold deep feelings and thoughts. As you immerse yourself into his work you are taken onto a familiar journey.
"MENSCH" delves into the powerful theme of self-acceptance. As the final installment in a captivating trilogy, the album builds upon the introspective journey initiated by his first two albums, Solicit (self-released in March 2019), which focused on self-destruction, followed by Hermitage debuts on EC Underground, in July 2021 which explores self-awareness.
"Mensch" is a remarkably versatile album that offers not only music but also a broader experience, showcasing talented artists such as Karen Vogt, analept, Recue, illocanblo, cat cancer, Mathmatrix, who are already well-known in the label roster, as well as introducing new artists like Alex Smoke and blanckien.
The album is a blend of ambient sounds, powerful drums, and moody notes, which are typical of Heft's style. The songs feature lush synths, plucks from Japanese koto instruments, ambient pads, huge bass from the 808, and drums from both the 808 and 909.
We couldn't be more excited to announce the launch of our project, which will kick off with a mesmerizing lead single set to release on October 27th. The fifth track titled "Hive Mind And I" showcases the ethereal vocals of Karen Vogt, an immensely talented Australian singer residing in Paris. Her enchanting contribution to the album truly captivates and casts a beautiful spell over anyone who listens.
Bewitching, stirring, and immersive, “Hive Mind and I” wafts over an ever-shifting and swelling blend of hypnotic, crisp percussion patterns along with densely trembling and buzzing bass floors, enshrouded in alienating dazzly pads, shivering, increasingly pulsing, icy synth glows and an array of vibrating and droning frequencies, to embrace a hauntingly beautiful and emotive powerhouse KV vocal, layering an agony and ecstasy of crushed piercing cries with deep distant echoes, connecting cold and lonely souls with a deeply emotional and vibrant hive mind vibe.
Surreal, distorted, and thought-provoking, the Le Quang Nhut‘s lyric video syncs curious, global, slice-of-life imagery with the collective consciousness of the soundtrack. A mirage of modern snapshots shuffles intimate inner turmoil with rapid urban flows, and virtual cybernetic fusions to heighten sensory perception into a melancholic disturbia, where alienation, fear, and confusion drip a lone tear of endless beauty into a hypnotic veil of hopeless dreams.
2021. Heft presented HERMITAGE, a very intimate album with enlisted help from outstanding artists, as a close team: Lyli J, MLTPLX, Keiss, Aevin, Roel Funcken, Cyance and After The Pulse.
Each artist, in its own way, supports one aspect of the listening experience.
Starting above the stratosphere while slowly falling down to earth, “Hermitage” is a journey through spirituality and stoicism, which
involves all aspects of our being – intellect, imagination, sensibility, and – essentially our body, mind and soul.
Well known for pushing the limits and boundaries of music into different and endeavor sonic worlds, for this release, Heft's aim is to connect with people through his musical expression, which is an extension of himself and his spiritual story.
