about

Yes & Javisst! The third mayhem!
This is indeed Nordenstam’s staggering Her Vil Jeg Være EP.

Nordenstam is a true a legend inBergen. One foot firmly planted deep underground after countless hardware live shows that is his trademark. The other foot pure sound geek material as mastering honcho of Norway. Since his early teens he has built, perfected, destroyed and fixed devices that goes BLEEP, SWOOOOSH and OMKHIPPUMPH. He has played gigs on top of mountains, on distant islands and in deep forests, often dangerously moist for the equipment. And he offers mastering service of all kinds of music, designs studios for other mastering engineers around the world and has written more nerdness about the mathematics of sound than we care to read. The sounds speaks for themselves. He has numerous releases behind him as well, through labels such as Sex Tags, Wania and Draug.

His "Acid Over Danmarksplass" from PL001NK was a classic favorite of ours that we just had to release even though he wrote it over a decade ago. With PL003NK though he invites us into the realm of his two more recent masterpieces: "Her Vil Jeg Være" and "Viddenatt". As always with Nordenstam, all his compositions are performed live in his studio without any post editing of any kind. He records the take in one go, we send the recording to Dubplates & Mastering who cuts the lacquer and it eventually ends up on wax on your turn table. All very hands on. Both tracks pay homage to the classic style of the epic, storytelling techno. The monster of "Her Vil jeg Være" twists it score, instilling scary thoughts, whilst "Viddenatt" takes you way into deep mountains of snow & glaciers, politely asking you to please enjoy the view. Throughout, we never loose touch of Nordenstam's mind controlling his many strange machines through every curve of the tracks.
Where did his love for machines come from? We don't know, though perhaps the EP artwork provides a suggestion, as the young woman operating the mystical machine years ago is in fact his late mother.
