Åbo is more than a band name. It is a former bank buliding in
Johannishus in South East Sweden which was where Börft Records was
founded and where the boss Jan Zwarre Svensson grew up. It was where the
original location of Studio Styrka was and where the first important
years of recordings by FRAK and Alvars Orkester was done. It was a
creative volcano, and also a social meeting point for likeminded,
teenage weirdos into electronic music. Villa Åbo is the foundation for a
lot of stuff still resonating today. The story of Villa Åbo started in
1997 when the now collectable ”Ticketiketas” 12” saw the light on Börft.
Zwarre had done dance stuff before as FRAK but now blew our minds with
this funky, experimental acid techno acid thing. Villa Åbo immediately
became an obsession for me. The same year the ”Tagetes” 2x12” came out
and it had some quite amazing house elements to it. Zwarre had been into
cheesy Chicago house for years and was often found playing Strictly
Rhythm 12”s at parties but it still came as a nice surprise. Today, FRAK
has been active for a long time now releasing tons of records, Alvars
Orkester is asleep but about to be awaken, and Villa Åbo is the output
for his addicion to deeper electronic dance stuff, with killer releases
on labels like Butter Sessions, Dark Entries and Noise In My Head.
"CARPET PROOF OF DAILY REPORTS" is a six track Long Player that takes
you through underground techno funk to mindmelting ”Brain Charter
Disco”. Step inside of the world of Villa Åbo! You wont regret it. -
