German Lo-fi Producer Mr. Käfer Shares Introspective ‘Mirrors’ EP
January 6, 2023 BY Jason Currell
Today, Austrian beatmaker/producer Mr. Käfer shares his latest EP Inner Mirrors, via Nettwerk. Always determined to innovate, the Cologne-based artist came up with the EP’s reflective theme while contemplating his reasons for creating art in the first place.
“Inner Mirrors is a reflection,” shares Mr. Käfer, “of a time where I had to make a lot of decisions in my personal life and thought a lot about where I wanted to go with my sound and where it’s coming from. I’ve always seen music as a way to process daily life and to mirror it into something hearable. I reflected a lot on my personal background as a beatmaker and how it all started for me.”
The singles from the six-track instrumental project have accumulated over 600K streams across platforms, buoyed by strong Spotify editorial support and dozens of pickups on SubmitHub. Mr. Käfer’s first release with Nettwerk, “Blurred,” debuted at #8 on the platform’s coveted “lofi beats” editorial playlist (4.8M likes). Additionally, “9 to 5” was added to Spotify’s “Jazz Vibes” playlist (2.1M likes), and single “What Now” was added to their “Workday Lounge” editorial (313K likes).
