Farce remains experimental, but becomes more refined, more accessible. 2020 brings the next release, Trauma Bounce, which makes it into the FM4 charts and worldwide radio, as does the single Déjà Vu with Aether Kombo, which becomes a No. 1. Collaborations with Fauna, Clara Luzia, Aether Kombo, Soap & Skin. Farce is (co-)producer of acts like Anthea, Sakura and Juno Lee.
At home in the feminist underground as well as the international avant-garde, König is passionate about promoting young talent in the queer music scene. In May 2022, the new album Not To Regress will see the light of day, eliciting a tear of emotion even from the stone cold walls of St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
