This compilation contains both some real veterans and some that will appear on vinyl for the first time.
a1 BRUNST (sweden, Gothenburg)
-A truly veteran. Still active in the band NJURMÄNNEN who started back in 1983 as a synthy rock outfit.
Brunst is the soloproject of Magnus Axelsson and have som real bizzarre synthworks in the backpack,mostely released on the tapemedium during the 80´s.
a2 ANDERS ENGE (sweden, Stockholm)
-Anders Enges interest in modular synthesizers comes from a desire to shut down conscious decisions about form and to focus on rhythm and timbre. This does however not land in traditional techno but rather in a riff-oriented style, the riff being both rhythm and “melody” and also a morphing entity in the music. Drums and percussion attempt to follow this entity, while maintaining a link to the dance music pulse. The resulting style makes for a hybrid timewarped experience of travelling a parallell electronic music reality, a brooding technoid that grooves.Anders is new in the “Scene” but has performed alot both as an electroinic artist and as a guitarplayer.
a3 SIMON W (sweden, Malmö)
-Simon is new by name but not as an artist. I don´t know but I guess he has a few aliases but one I know is this split 12” released by Kontra-Musik back in 2007; SCAFF/APPARATUS “Periodic Fluctuations of Voltages”. A real good release in the Kontra archive.

b2 VILLA ÅBO (sweden, Karlskrona)
