“Loophole” by Berlin-based artist Faber marks the second-ever full-length album released on Heimlich Musik. Having made a name for himself back in a world where summer festivals were still a thing, he now condenses the energy of his remarkable live appearances into nine tracks of a unique approach of downtempo.
The slowed-down arrangements are filled with powerful, obscure percussions, adding texture to the high-energy productions. Faber is a master at creating an organic interplay between a special kind of darkness and bright, harmonic synth lines underlined by subtle vocals parts. “Loophole” tells a story of contrasts, generating a feeling of traveling through space and time.
