‘2X1=4’ will debut in September through Frahm’s new LEITER label and is getting a video preview for the first single ‘Desert Mule’.

“I like to end up somewhere where I marvel at myself, the machine or the person with whom I am making music,” adds Blumm, and Frahm confirms: “None of this is too serious. important. The recording is just a dub recording like the previous ones were jazz recordings…”
