1980 is a brand new solo work by Michel Isorinne, one half of scandinavian duo Dard Å Ranj Från Det Hebbershålska Samfundet, in short D.Å.R.F.D.H.S., with Jonas Rönnberg (Varg).
In between the myriad of releases the two has put out for labels such as Opal Tapes, Total Black, Clan Destine and a forthcoming double LP entitled “In The Wake Of The Dark Earth” for Field Records the pair still manage to make time for working on solo projects.
Here Isorinne explores a more half-awaken dream in stop motion, letting his machines find balance between classic ambient and eerie melodies. It might be a short trip with his 20 minutes on tape, but what strike the most is the feeling of both decay and surprise in the music of the Stockholm born - Blåsut resident.
Any fans of certified luminaries such as William Basinski, Tim Hecker and even The Caretaker should check this material and keep following this guy.
We know more is to come, so keep your eyes open.
The tape comes in a white cassette housing, limited to an edition of 100 copies with a full color j card and download code (MP3/FLAC) included.
