Twenty years after the release of the last Hardkiss album Delusions of Grandeur Hardkiss have a second album titled 1991. Back in 90s San Francisco; Scott Gavin and Robbie Hardkiss helped pioneer the US Underground/EDM/Rave scene with their club nights warehouse parties and groundbreaking record label. They forged a new direction for dance music with a string of vinyl releases culminating in the seminal compilation DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR. DELUSIONS made the Billboard dance charts went to #1 on the Rolling Stone alternative album chart and launched the international DJ/production careers of the Hardkiss brothers. Reunited in the Bay Area in 2010 Gavin and Robbie produced a new album that stands tall in the often repetitive world of electronic dance music. Named for the year the Hardkiss collective was formed 1991 references the sounds and sentiments of their early rave days while exploring new musical directions. Recorded in San Rafael California the album took shape in two home studios that are separated by a hillside hike. "I came into this story to praise Hardkiss sure but I also intended to bury it. But after listening to the new Hardkiss Music album that Robbie & Gavin conceived before Scotts death its called 1991 I realized that this isnt the end. The album isnt a tribute or not purely so. It isnt remixes of old music. It isnt a closer. In a slightly different configuration after more than a decade in oblivion Hardkiss really is back again." 5 Magazine Chicago "(Hardkiss) pick up where they left off and make a modern dance classic." "Hardkiss revisit the clean lines and heartquickening house rhythms of dance music's imperial phase when purity and love ruled above all else." San Francsico Chronicle
