After my last record, I wasn’t sure if or when the creative bug may strike again. I started to write a book, I became a yoga teacher and I started to DJ around LA.

“We did Time Traveller as the first single, because it features all instruments that we use with My Friend The Chimpanzee. It has guitar as well as electric bass, synth bass, synth pads, synth leads, vocoder (if you listen closely) and a string machine (again barely audible). Time Traveller therefore is something of an experiment, where we wanted to see how the different elements come together in the final mix and master.” Lukas Wieser from My Friend The Cimpanzee
Mogli adopts a lo-fi sound, with what may seem at first a minimalistic approach to musical production.

Yet, an attentive listener will notice the different layers that make up each one of them: a musical density that is hidden in plain sight.
