About Das Mörtal
On November 5th, Das Mörtal will present his new album, ‘Miami Beach Witches’ during an immersive live show at Montreal’s SAT, which will also be live-streamed for his worldwide audience. The show promises to be a powerful musical experience where social distancing becomes an integral part of the scenography. The staging of the show, created by digital artist Nathan Nardin (Charlotte Cardin, Ariane Moffatt), is inspired by the occult themes that run throughout the album, transporting the audience to a luminous digital forest.
Chilean Canadian Cristobal Cortes, or Das Mörtal has produced the soundtracks for a few films, including Naissance d’un Zombie and feature film Deadcon resulting in a significant rise in results on Shazam. His 2017 album Always Loved (which is still selling rapidly on vinyl) featured collaborations with French Fox and Ghost Twin and received international acclaim that allowed Das Mörtal to headline his first US tour.
Inspired by artists such as Steve Moore and Aphex Twin, Das Mörtal creates an obscure and nostalgic sound, mixing influences from german techno to horror and sci-fi movie soundtracks. However, the producer draws closer parallels to artists such as oOoOO, Clams Casino and Holy Other.
Proudly proclaiming itself as a lullaby for the lost souls, ‘It Comes’ carries the signature synth heavy and ethereal tone that listeners have come to associate with Das Mörtal. The song is driven by a slow, singular heartbeat that resonates with the deep bassline. Be ready to welcome the Elder Gods into your dreams with this Wiccan hymn.
