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.

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.
