One of Purified Records’ most anticipated IDs from Nora En Pure’s recent sets around the planet, German producer Lexer’s Closemouthed marks his outstanding label debut.

 
Combining playful vocals with an uplifting arrangement, this summer-tinged creation takes listeners on an energetic ride. Fusing modern elements with a classic touch, Lexer’s latest cut demonstrates his boundless production style, as well as his experimental and fresh approach.
 
Speaking about the release, Lexer said:
Closemouthed is for me a perfect summer track that brings a good mood and atmosphere. The melodic chords with the vocals make this track the perfect combination.”
 
Growing up in the East German town of Leipzig, from a young age Lexer would spend his weekends travelling to nightclubs, absorbing his friends’ DJ sets and sending them his favourite tracks to play out – until he decided to keep those tracks for himself. He gained rapid recognition for his mesmeric house sets and turned his hand to producing at 18 years old. His first track My Princess cemented his name as a true melodic house talent.
 
His sound evolved from melodic to deep house, capturing the hearts and souls of dance music fans around the planet with his 2015 album Nowhere Else on Kontor Records. In 2019, he revealed Felina, marking a transitional moment in his artistic journey – a pivot from house to dynamic techno with harder, faster and big-room-ready productions. With Lane 8 being an early inspiration in his musical journey, This Never Happened became the perfect home for his creations, after dance music legend and label boss Lane 8 approached him as a fan of his work. He released his double-single Gemini Bridges / Room 4242 towards the end of 2020 and Gemini Bridges remained in Spotify’s editorial playlist Night Rider for well over a year. In 2022, he revealed his album The First Last Day, showcasing another side to his sound.
 

The Closemouthed artwork displays a shot of corals on the ocean floor, captured by Daniel Nicholson. Coral reefs are among the most biologically diverse ecosystems on Earth, providing habitats for approximately 25% of all marine species despite covering less than 1% of the ocean floor. They play a vital role in carbon cycling, as they absorb and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping to mitigate climate change. Despite their appearance of sturdiness, coral reefs are fragile structures built by tiny polyps over centuries. They are highly sensitive to changes in water temperature, acidity, and pollution, making them vulnerable to environmental stressors.
