is an electronic duo (Ludvig Stolterman + Jonatan Nilsson) from Umeå, one of the largest cities in northern Sweden. Mainly drawing their inspiration from the vast woodlands in Norrland, their music is dark & cinematic, aching with melancholy & longing…
Gidge are currently working on their debut album which will be released on Applescal’s Atomnation label. They’re offering a blissful 8-minute track as a taste of what’s to come. It definitely leaves you craving for more.
With just seven 12-inches released since first sightings back in 2007, the duo Ancient Methods has become so closely intertwined with the Berlin (and European) techno scene that it’s almost surprising they haven’t been around much longer. This week they visited FluxFM's studios for our Electronic Beats on Air radio show and recorded a mix that, although always close to the four-to-the-floor kickdrum, also explores electronica territories with Raster Noton or the ambient minimalism of Voices from the Lake. However, with names like Joey Beltram, Lucy and Sleeparchive on the tracklist, you can be quite sure to get the full Ancient Methods ‘pitch black techno war funk’ dosage here—a term coined by Boomkat in 2007 that is still as fitting as ever.
