Function New Album Incoming!

Get ready to question your Existenz’ this coming winter.

Function is all set to release his second solo album to date, Existenz. His previous full-length landed on the prestigious Ostgut Ton and with this outing, he adds Tresor to his heavyweight list of labels. Existenz is compiled from a series of recordings from late-2016 to mid-2019 and features collaborations with house icon Robert Owens and Function’s partner Stefanie Parnow. 

 ”The album focuses on themes of religion, sexuality, trauma and healing and is said to be more ‘expansive and celebratory’ than the Berlin-based artist’s usual style of techno.”
