Coldnose creates its unclean and dirty techno, inspired by both electro, D’n’B, acid and industrial. Long jams are improvised to later break up and form songs, always with a huge space of chance and spontaneity live, especially when it comes to the distant song. The texts commute between frustration, nonsense, everyday romance to Kurdish frames.
Slim Vic is one of Swedens leading innovator of the DJ and turntable culture. With one foot in the urban club music and the other in arts music he combines the different worlds and constantly moving the boundaries of what is technically and musically possible with the traditional and proven context.
London-based La Leif produces with analogue synths, drum machines and real-world samples.
Ethereal, pulsating, and rhythmically deep transmissions are channelled through the techno/human venn diagram within La Leif’s sound cocoon. Her debut EP ‘The Nest’ is out on The Lumen Lake (Vinyl + download) with new beat driven material soon on the way.
SQ (Sound Quartet) is carried by howling winds from the frozen tundra with an urge to make sound poetry for the masses, an enchanting experimental blend of acoustic and electronic sounds. These rarely published freethinkers creates a low key intense music with the strength of swedish granite that matured for an eternity.”
