Review: Next on Prins Thomas' Internasjonal imprint it's over to Gothenburg-based DJ/producer Anton Klint, aka Tiedye and Tryck & Ton (with Edvin Edvinsson) following up previous releases on Public Possession, Hivern Discs and Munich's Gomma. Dusty, lo-fi, '80's themed electronics are pervasive on the 'Gitts' EP: from the lo-slung movie soundtrack vibe of "Ojoj", to the moody and minimalist tribal rhythms of "Dingdong" which will hypnotise you into submission. Likewise, Klint saves the best for last on the tripped-out slo-mo psychedelia of "Eld".
Review: Hivern Discs delivers a debut from Anton Klint, a Swedish artist who claims to enjoy "making music at night". Whether the two original cuts here are typical of his production style remains to be seen, but title track "Lyckliga Manniskor" - a slipped, off-kilter house workout full of layered hand percussion, fuzzy synth lines, tropical melodies and Swedish spoken word vocals - is both bonkers and brilliant. "Djembe Unchained", a dub-flecked, decidedly out their chunk of analogue-rich electronic deep house hypnotism, is also rather special. Berceuse Heroique regular Black Merlin naturally does a bang up job remixing that track, too, offering up a mind-altering blend of melodic synthesizer arpeggio lines, foreboding chords and unfussy machine drums.
