Bergschrund is taken from DJ Shadow’s forthcoming album, The Mountain Will Fall
DJ Shadow and Nils Frahm have teamed up on a new track taken from DJ Shadow’s fifth solo LP, The Mountain Will Fall.
As Shadow explained to The Fader, Bergschrund is “an obscure German word for a particular type of crevasse, or ice cliff, usually found on mountains at very high elevations.” He also described Frahm as “an insanely smart composer. He created a sinewy, gated vintage synth line which I then expanded upon, hopefully to complimentary effect.”
Listen to the frenetic, driving track below. Previously, Shadow has shared the Run The Jewels-featuring Nobody Speak and title track The Mountain Will Fall from the album, which comes out 24 June via Mass Appeal. We visited Nils Frahm at his studio last year. See the feature here.
