Composed as a part of the project “Transglobal Exodus Complex” - Chapter ASIA FILES, this new track plays with various motives of the “Far East” fantasy and resumes [dunkelbunt]s earlier sampling and turntablism experiments.

The reference to the feature film of the same name and to the topic of atomic bombing was at first rather associative: The theme of yearning for a different, “Oriental” world is reflected in the bitter-sweet violins (erhu), in the percussive plucked strings and in the song line recorded by the singer Lisa Cantabile: "Ne me quitte pas, mon Amour".

Due to the deliberately associative production process and in the context of current DJ mixes such as "Bass of Asia" and "Bass of India", the track "Hiroshima Mon Amour" is a further step within [dunkelbunt]s exploration of the topics "Asia" and "Far East". It includes dark aspects such as civilization collapse and climate change into the musical imagination. Daniel Krammer’s artwork, which was carried out in the [dunkelbunt]-studio, integrates these apocalyptic vibes, but remains - just like the leisurely shuffling track - confident and serene.
