NO STRANGE WATERS
Pär Grindvik and Stockholm LTD / Islands & Islets presents “No Strange Waters”. More than half way through 2009 we would like to take the opportunity to present the first ever compilation on Stockholm LTD and Islands & Islets. A compilation that contains material from artists of both the labels and displays our sound in great way! There are 10 songs in total but you will receive them as 3 parts during a month period.
The Subliminal Kid aka Peder Mannerfelt has gained high reputation lately with records
on labels like Ann Aimee and Off-Key Industries and together with Van Rivers aka Henrik von Sivers; they just produced half of Karin Dreijer from The Knife’s solo album Fever Ray. With 2 timeless records on our label Islands and Islets in the past; The Subliminal Kid got the first spot of this compilation with the song ”Bright Light, Big City” which Pär Grindvik pitched after hearing it on Gilles Peterson’s BBC Radio Show over 2 years ago.
The second track on this compilation “2002 and Counting” is made by The Subliminal
Kid and Van Rivers together. Besides remixing artists like Lykke Li, Massive Attack and Jenny Wilson, the guys already have 4 releases out on Stockholm LTD and Islands & Islets. The duo Van Rivers and The Subliminal Kid have a history of producing famous artists like just mentioned Fever Ray, the Shout Out Louds and are currently on tour with Fever Ray as well.
Last track on this first part is “2401 Penitent Tangent” from Staffan Linzatti. Staffan,
was born in Sweden, but recently moved to Berlin. With hit track “Quibble” on District of Corruption to highly acclaimed “The World Ends with You” on Stockholm LTD and upcoming “Lights Up On” with Pär Grindvik on Saved Records, Staffan shows us his wide expertise of producing. The track “2401 Penitent Tangent” has a stealth true techno sound that easily brings thoughts to Detroit techno pioneers like Jeff Mills and Robert Hood. Staffan adopts this sound and adds a big piece of future!
