Das Mörtal “IDÖL”
Arcane Electronic producer Das Mörtal released his new single, ‘IDÖL’, on the 19th of May via Lisbon Lux Records. The single follows his recently released track ‘WASTED’, which received early support from the industry webzine METAL Magazine and the local culture publication Ottawa Life Magazine.
The support adds to his growing collection of press features, written by the likes of American publication MetalSucks, Canadian culture magazine Cult MTL as well as Le Canal Auditif, German webzines DIFFUS Magazine and VOLT Magazine, and Swedish publication Brutal Resonance to name a few. Additionally, his music has charted on the American college radio chart Top 200 NACC, where it earned Most Added New Release, received spins on CJSW Radio, and was featured on the NewRetroWave YouTube channel.
Das Mörtal shares his 2-part vision: “IDÖL is going to make you dance and bounce while we try to escape the pressures of society.”
An intricate tapestry of knife-cutting synths, highly distorted yet danceable 808s, and pitched-down vocals, ‘IDÖL’ is a heavy-hitter. The track thumps, pulsating waves of grungy saturation and densely layered stabs. It marks a leap in the producer’s style and energy.
Das Mörtal began his journey in Berlin, inspired by artists such as Steve Moore and Aphex Twin. The producer forges a dark and nostalgic sound, skillfully mixing influences that range from German Techno to horror and sci-fi film soundtracks. With several EPs and albums released, he has performed at numerous major festivals such as Osheaga, Transmusicales de Rennes, FME, and Meg Festival, while opening on tours for Vitalic, Perturbator, Carpenter Brut, artists to whom his music can be likened.
Now part of the world’s leading Synthwave producers, the enigmatic artist offers a more personal sound, a unique musical signature charming a growing audience worldwide. With over 20 million streams on Spotify alone, Das Mörtal receives media and radio support in a dozen countries, as well as on several influential pages on Youtube. On stage, he has racked up nearly 100 shows since 2015, including more than 70 dates in the U.S. and Europe (UK, France, Scandinavia).
