Ipnotica Erotica’s latest release expresses the essence of what the label stands for.

The first track takes the same name as the label, which like a mantra is repeated throughout the duration of the track. Key Clef uses herself as the image of her video for this track. Also expressed in the content of it is her concept of liberation through movement and the hedonistic perception of one’s own body by connecting through sound.

第一首曲子采用了与标签相同的名字,像一个咒语一样在整个曲子的持续时间内重复。Key Clef用她自己作为这首歌曲的视频的形象,在视频内容中表达了她通过运动解放的概念,以及通过声音连接对自己身体的享乐主义感知。


Soffocare is proof of great synthesis mastery, made mostly in live recordings. Ever-evolving track with a carefree sound and playful rhythms that chase each other while its title contradicts this feeling as reality from the perception of it. In the B-side track Key clef brings what for her is the flow of parties in Berlin clubs, a continuous vortex of movement, sounds and voices. The provocative sound and the visceral laughter make this track pure dynamite for the dancefloor.

Soffocare是伟大的合成技术的证明,主要是在现场录音中制作的,这是一首不断发展的曲目,具有无忧无虑的声音和俏皮的节奏,相互追逐,而它的标题与这种感觉相矛盾,因为它是现实的感知。在B面的曲目中,Key clef带来了对她来说是在柏林俱乐部的聚会的流动,一个连续的运动、声音和声音的漩涡。挑衅性的声音和内脏的笑声使这首曲子成为舞池里的纯正炸药。
