Deft: Voight Kampff (EP, Purple 12 Inch, Digital)
Find yourself on an interstellar trip away from the solitude and darkness of a wasted and depleted home-world on its final demise. During this journey you will not only move unbelievable distances through space and time but furthermore make unforeseen progress in your inner-mind and deepest parts of your psyche – questioning yourself and your perception on what it is to be real. These questions of self-doubt lead to an identity crisis that ultimately results in the hope of discovering a fantastic new utopian world that can only be reached through an incredible wormhole of a very special kind.
But what does reality mean in this blurry timeless vision?
Written, produced, and mixed by Yip Wong. Mastered by Sven Friederichs. A&R: Gordon Gieseking & Malte Tarnow. Original painting by Gregor Pieplow – Mikroversum. Design by Gordon Gieseking.
