Alpha Mound – Generative #001 (Edit – A2)
Started as an experiment in Ableton Live with midi-effects that creates random outcomes from a single note. The notes are then processed with threshold values stopping some and letting others pass through. The remaining notes are then harmonically transposed to confirm to a set scale. The randomness has then been edited to a degree that they no longer appear random. Other instruments has since then been added. Drawing by Gustaf Lord

Filya Trevelyan – Dim
“I’ve been producing the track Dim under the influencre of the dark and cold late autumn in Finland. My annual autumn-insomnia kept me awake the nights and the days, so i decided to put it together as a gloomy and dark techno track. Producing this track took me not that long, aprox one to two weeks, and then i sended it for Lamour for further mastering. My next release in the future is gonna be pretty much the same sound as you can hear int this tracks called Filya Trevelyan – Dim.”

Maneten – Dongel (3G)
Thanks for listening. Time flies, once again I’m honoured to contribute to the We Love Music project.
Maneten sound is kind of in the same territory as usual, this year around a spontaneous workout and layer on a 20%-ish sketch from 2009, the baseline, resonated chords & vocal chops are old the rest is a freshie.
The track is a sequel to the ”Dongelsonata” originally released on Solarscape Recordings September 2009. A hommage to a time period pre the WiFi hotspot.
Recorded and arranged by David Erik Holm October 2017 at Makeshift Patio Gävle.

AKB ft. Slim Vic – Live at Kapellet (2017-10-18)
Melodies moving slowly creating a menacing, drone-like atmosphere in which meditation will add to the experience of the listening. Suggested musical intake through headphones at dawn when the mind is still drowsy. Possible side-effects are of binaural character and may cause the listener to hear rhythms where there are none. The composition needs to be tracked carefully over its duration to be understood.
Recording from the live performance of AKB (feat. Slim Vic) at Klubb Armadillo, Kapellet, Stockholm, October 2017.

Rötterna (The Roots) are the title song for Oestergaards debut cassette that will be released on Lamour records in early 2018.
“By the barren river bed, everything long gone and dead
Shredded woods drenched in leaden skies

Our grief drowns in its bottomless lakes
– among the roots all is reborn.”

Motormännen – Gruvkrisen (2017 Techno Remix)
Motormännen make information techno infused with an air of Swedish nostalgia through a filter of retro-futuristic skepticism.
The music is packed with minimal acid loops and samples with excerpts from Swedish politicians, documentaries and Christer Glenning, reflecting on times when the cold war and the traditional welfare state were dissolving. Inhibitions were relaxed and new, foreign influences crept into the body of society and the old information monopolies. Motormännen’s tracks are visually enhanced by messages from pictures and videos from the 1970’s and 80’s.

LEHNBERG – Swami
David (LEHNBERG) has started to mix up his ultra rhythmic driven soundscapes to focus on his wayward musicality when it comes to harmonics.
The sounds on ”Swami” floats through your ear canals as on a river towards your soul with Radhanath Swami’s words of love and
has a clear sonic connection to LEHNBERG’s latest cassette tape; ’Morgondröm’. (October 13)
Words are lent from; Radhanath Swami, and his speech; ’Purifying Our Existence”.
Radhanath Swami is one of today’s most beloved and respected spiritual teachers. A Bhakti Yoga practitioner for 40 years, he is a guide,
community builder, philanthropist, and acclaimed author.
