“In the end, it’s all you.” And this “you”, who could be anyone, could be unnoticed. That is the reflection that the producer Christian Löffler and the singer Josephine Philip reflect on in their second collaboration. “The End” is an electronic track with a pop song structure. The song lasts only three minutes, but having heard two versions (one dub and another one sung), the bass already appears to set the tone of a production that continues to develop the concept of electronics, always defended by the Berlin artist. Melancholy and euphoria. The main role of the shadows. And a combination of acoustic colours and textures that projects a warm, welcoming environment and warns that happiness is within reach of anyone.
“The End” was written with my friend Josephine Philip from Copenhagen and is the follow-up work to our first collaboration “Running” from my album Graal (Prologue). It’s about our fate that everything is coming to an end at some point and nothing is here to last forever. The song is a reminder to focus on the people and things in life that we really love and care about. It’s so easy to lose track and get lost in all the possibilities nowadays. Things that make us happy are often closer than we think. But it’s also about letting go and clearing your vision to see what else can be there – not to follow the same path without having a look aside. // Christian Löffler
“The End” is the opening track of Lys, a mega album made up of up to 28 tracks and featuring, in addition to Josephine Philip, the collaborations – in order of appearance – of Dominik Eulberg, Mohna, Gry and Nicole Moudaber.
