Review: Having already issued a fine debut album for the Editions Mego label this year, Swedish artist Klara Lewis serves further notice of her clear talent for power electronics and expertly sculpted sonic design with this four track release on Peder Mannerfelt Produktion. Msuic "I", "II", "III" and "IV" follow a similarly gloomy path to her album, where cavernous walls of noise erupt from every angle only to be swallowed back into a long tunnel of atmospherics and grey-scaled ambience. The fourth segment is particularly enticing, where Lewis blends field recordings together with flutters of distant, sinister horns and more tranquil soundscapes.
Review: Peder Mannerfelt's Produktion label comes correct once more, ushering in the debut vinyl release from Russian artist Machine Woman, the six track For Sweden 12". The production alias of Leningrad-born and Berlin-based Anastasia Vtorova, Machine Woman aligns with Mannerfelt after first making her name on some 2014 tapes - check her Pink Silk effort for Tesla Tapes if you want to delve backwards into her sound. For Sweden is described as "waltzing the line between techno and the avant-garde' which seems like a fairly accurate summation with the tracks swinging between gravelly rhythmic cuts the more adventurous DJs will play in the club and glitchy experimentalism that will appeal to fans of the Pan Sonic school of sound. A most impressive record from Ms Vtorova!
Review: 2014 is treating Peder Mannerfelt very well so far, with a critically acclaimed third Roll The Dice LP completed with Malcolm Pardon complemented by his own development as a solo producer that's manifested itself in a debut LP for Digitalis and the launch of an eponymous record label. With plans afoot to release on Sendai's Archives Interieures label, Mannerfelt's second release on his Produktions label arrives and adds more shape to this most compelling of producers. Some five tracks deep PM002 delves further into the world of humming signal paths and discombobulated synth patterns with emphasis toward sound-sculpture over traditional rhythmic groove.
Review: In what's being described as a year of rebirth for Peder Mannerfelt, the Swedish synth specialist has put his previous work as half of Roll The Dice and his housier inclinations under the The Subliminal Kid alias to one side to focus on a new avant garde solo career. This trajectory is geared toward complex sound design and sophisticated synthesis and ahead of the Lines Describing Circles album for Digitalis Recordings, Mannerfelt has created his own platform called Peder Mannerfelt Produktion. The debut release, titled simply EP1, sees the Swede experiment with sonics in a manner that will appeal to fans of Mike Parker, Emptyset and Donato Dozzy, and Raster-Noton's blips and glitches.
Review: IDM and experimental electronics dwelling on the outer limits of techno here, from one of the most impressive figures on the Scandinavian scene. Titled 'The 3D Printed Songbook', it features the emotive chill electro of "First Day" that kinda sounds like space invaders in your typewriter. We also enjoyed the slow burning afterhours techno of "It's Coming", equally impressive with its industrial edge: off-kilter/steely and textured rhythms alongside sludgy arpeggios. Despite its name, "Texas Is The Reason" sounds more like Buffalo, New York via Stockholm on this hypnotic sci-fi thriller that merges Mike Parker style dystopianism with Mannerfelt's penchant for lo-fi electronics. By contrast, the sublime ambient interludes In between act as nice palette cleansers for the ears. Released via his eponymous imprint, Mannerfelt kicks off 2018 on the right foot, following up work on Fever Ray's most recent album.
Review: All things considered, it's been a pretty big year for Peder Mannerfelt. First he releases on Glasgow's Numbers imprint, and then Will Bankhead and Joy Orbison's Hinge Finger label - what could he possibly come up with next!? Well, the dude is back on his own, self-titled record imprint with an unsurprisingly loose set of dance tracks, starting with the near-beatless ambient waves of "Joan @ The Rave", and followed by the beat-heavy techno punch "Public Images". "Request Line" kicks the B-side off with a wonky bit of leftfield dance experimentation, spear-headed by an aptly bizarre set of bass tones, allowing "Blog Kept A Growing" to ties this wonderful EP off yet more frivolity, manifested by a stop-start power electronic rhythm. Much needed - go grab it.
Review: For his third album, Swedish producer Peder Mannerfelt retreats to his own self-titled label. Not much else has changed though and Controlling Body is shot through with the same assured, experimental edge. "Building of the Mountain" kicks off the album with rave stabs breaking in slow motion and Glasser's high-pitched wail, while "Her Move" features an unnamed chanter speeding up and slowing down against robust break beats. There are also moments of real musical beauty - check the warm, enveloping chords of "BZ Reaction" and the ghostly, Biosphere-style radar whirrs of "Coast 2 Coast" - but this would not be a Mannerfelt work if it did not test the boundaries, as it does on the mannequin stuttering 'c-c-c-c-create' on the slowed down tribalism of "Limits to Growth" or the droning textures of "Abysmal".
Review: The Pender Mannerfelt Produktion label has quickly become an utterly reliable source of industrial and leftfield wares, catching our attention with every new release on their catalogue. Dromfakulteten collective member Sissel Wincent is introduced to us here with her debut EP, and its tribalistic shades of electronica are absolutely spot-on in terms of what we seek at the moment. We love abstract, experimental music with movement and direction, and that is exactly what tunes like "As If", "Investigation" and "Monstera" are built-around, albeit noisy and, at times, totally broken down. "Chrome" is the tune that gets nearest to any form of techno or dance music thanks to some raucous kick drums, while "Stream Of Consciousness" breaks it all back down into a muddy, swamped pool of aqueous sonics.
