Signed to renowned Belgian label Eskimo Recordings, home to two seminal albums by Lindstrom & Prins Thomas, Cavego is set to solidify his reputation with his debut EP, the sparkling and playful 'Gudbrandsdalen'.?Named after the famous Gudbrandsdalen Valley, an iconic location in Norwegian literature and culture and where Cavego's family have long kept a cabin, the EP's genesis began last spring when he returned to the place he spent his formative years to collect the sounds of running creeks, birdsong, the wind in the grass and create music based on his childhood experiences.
With his collection of vintage synthesizers, carefully, relocated out to the remote cabin, these field recordings would go on to become the basis for the EP. Lead single 'Vertikal Vind' sees Cavego create a musical soundtrack for the long night drive back from his cabin. The resulting music has a hypnotic, dreamlike feel that perfectly captures the otherworldly, frozen landscape, the snowflakes whipping off the metres-high snow-banks on either side of the road illuminated in the headlights like thousands of tiny stars.
