Omnitron – Visitor in the night
Santa Claus comes once a year. He has no worries, he has no fear.
Half man, half machine, suddenly he is here.
He knows what you’re feeling, he know what you think.
He does not come for giving, he does not eat or drink.
+ bonus tracks Plasmasäkring – Plasmafuse jul

The found tapes are sampled, manipulated, processed and ”physically played” using granular synthesis and other techniques, to create obscure rhythmical structures, noises and drones. Düsseldorf by Night (DbN) is the experimental music outlet of composer and filmmaker Patrik K Book. Patrik also releases under the names DA BOOK and Patrik Book. In his early teens, Patrik sold his Commodore 64 home computer and began making minimalistic synthmusic using three Roland SH-101´s and a Boss Dr. Rhythm drummachine. This layed the foundation to the synthband AUSGANG VERBOTEN back in the mid 80ies. After a career as a filmmaker directing some 65 musicvideos for major labels in the 90ies, a lot of commisioned filmwork, a co-directed danish documentary – ”Little Miss GrownUp” that won the equivalent to the danish oscar in 2009, – Patrik is now mainly focusing on composing. He has recently completed a 30 minute string quartet piece for Malmö Symphony Orchestra´s string quartet, wich is to be performed at Malmö Live (Malmös new concert hall) spring 2016.

David Kramer – Inherent Mock
David Kramer, who also is the person behind the projects krmr and priority inversion, is a Gävle-based artist who’s electronic music is centered around modulars and hardware instruments & effects, finally put together in the software realm. Dark, industrial influenced techno, noise or modular landscapes reminiscent of early ambient and berlin school sounds, the projects all have one thing in common, the love for creating music by building and shaping sounds from the very first principles. Acid, techno, whatever, christmas is all about faking 303’s and drenching it all in reverb & distortion. Classics never go out of style. https://soundcloud.com/davidkrmr

LEHNBERG – Agentskolan
The creative force, density and drive David Lehnberg posses when it comes to music is not to be taken lightly. ’Agentskolan’ is a lush electronic piece that gets thrown into the techno-tronic turbine along with the trademark sparse harmonic melodies showing Lehnberg’s currently obsession of plucked instrumentation, found in and around Asia. David has been touring all over the globe relentlessly with his different bands, year in and year out, most recently with The Deer Tracks, where North America, Asia & Europe has been his second home.
A new LEHNBERG release to follow up his May 2015 debut EP ‘False Idols’ is scheduled to be released spring 2016 via Lamour Records.

Igor – Dissection
Mikael Strömberg’s alter ego Igor has created the album “Fast & Slow” who is an aspiring masterpiece in the ambient genre, the references are very clear to the 70’s iconic Ambient school, including Satie-Cage-Eno-SoundArt but at the same time a modern touch and a sense of the present. The story behind this album is the least frightening and fascinating as the composer Strömberg was seconds away from losing his lives when the aorta ruptured all the way from top to bottom with the diagnosis: acute aortic dissection. The music became a part of his rescue and the record “Fast and Slow” came about as part of his healing process. This track unfortunately did not fit on the album, so we present it now instead!

Maneten – The Dawn Of Planet Pilates (Get Down)
Maneten is the current musical output of Gefle-based producer David Holm. Beginning in the mid 2000s David stared making soft and spatial drum driven tracks & remixes to play in early hour DJ-sets mostly under the alias Sizemoreism. With a strong taste for drum programming and effects the production aims to be fluid & distant and often on a house or techno structure. Highly influenced by space, time, the internet and water sports the Maneten outlet is supposed to act as a playful, fast and transparent musical escape in a time when time is of the very essence.
Maneten was introduced through Lamour Recordings with the T.W.I.M.O EP & remixes late 2015.
The following track was recorded an overcast november noon as a stand alone quick peek of further sounds of Maneten.

[krig] is an art collective. About 50% of the expression is music, the rest is a visual or other representation of a larger picture, a view into another world, which music and art is an integrated part of. A big part of this is made using textile and craft or digitally projected images. [krig] breaks down barriers between the audience and artist, the art space and dance floor, time and space. The best way to understand this is to check out www.krig.me
