Nils Frahm and F.S.Blumm, a revered mainstay of the German underground for over two decades, announce their fourth collaborative album. 2X1=4 finds the duo unexpectedly exploring a dub-influenced universe, though in truth it’s one already familiar to both. F.S.Blumm, for instance, is co-founder of Quasi Dub Development, whose 2014 album, Little-Twister vs Stiff-Neck, featured Lady Ann and Lee Scratch Perry, while Frahm’s music – not least 2018’s All Melody – has occasionally betrayed a fondness for the form’s associated studio techniques, though he concedes wryly that his approach has always been “a little bit more German” than his influences…
2X1=4 is out on September 3 on LEITER, the new label formed by Frahm and Felix Grimm. Ahead of the release of the seven-track album, Blumm and Frahm share Desert Mule today. You can now stream the single or watch the official video following the links below.
