NDL in Paris

ndlThis weekend I’m off to Paris for the screening of “Northern Disco Lights” at the Polar Festival, where I’ll be doing a Q&A after the film. Prior to the screening I will be doing a live set at Rinse FM France that will also be streamed through their Facebook page. Skatebård will also be doing a DJ set in the same show, so tune in!

New project: WAVE∞FORM

Over the years I have written a lot of music that falls outside of my usual arena of club-friendly (and sometimes slightly un-friendly) beats. Up until recently this has mainly been in connection with film scoring or composing for art shows and sound installations, but I feel I’m now ready to release some of my more experimental material in a more traditional way. I’m therefore starting a new series of releases under a different artist name – to avoid any confusion. The first transmission by this new project is called “Waveform01”, and is a single track album with a running time of 53mins 17secs. You can stream the whole album from this new Bandcamp page , and if you like what you hear and want to purchase it, you may do so for a minimum of 5 Euro. If you want to pay more, that’s also OK. It only means I will be able to keep expanding my modular setup, and hopefully create new and interesting sounds for your future enjoyment. If you want to get in touch to book a live gig with WAVE∞FORM, you can hit me up through one of my social media channels (mentaloverdrive @ Instagram, Twitter or Facebook). If you’re rather looking for more club-friendly beats, you probably want to book Mental Overdrive instead. I hope you enjoy the new sounds.

The EP will be available on D&M-mastered vinyl from February 22nd, and you can hear snippets of all tracks in the player above.
