I have made a new mixtape which is now in circulation both on audio cassette and through my Bandcamp subscriber only service. It’s called “Pyramids on the Moon vol. 1”, and consists of outtakes and previously unreleased material in the form of film soundtracks, theatre music and various sketches that haven’t left my studio before. Go subscribe to my Bandcamp page to get this and other subscriber exclusives, plus my entire Mental Overdrive back catalogue.
My new album “Epilogue” is out today. Check it out in the player above and buy full quality files through Bandcamp or other digital download stores. Double vinyl coming soon.
Earlier this year we unexpectedly lost our good friend Christian Hollingsæter AKA Le Petit Garçon. Following his tragic passing, Geir Jenssen (Biosphere), took the initiative to compile an album of exclusive works from Christian’s vast network of artist friends for release through his label Biophon, with the main purpose of giving all sales income to Christian’s son Julian. The album is now available from the Biophon bandcamp page above and on CD through selected retailers.

This 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!
I’m happy to announce that my next Mental Overdrive album, “Hardware”, will be released by Bergen’s own PLOINK on March 6th. The material goes pretty much back to basics, with live techno jams recorded straight down to tape and then edited slightly before sent off to mastering at D&M. More info to come soon.
