Copenhagen’s WhoMadeWho return to Kompakt with a series of EPs, entitled Synchronicity”, to be released throughout 2020. This time the boys have brought some friends along for the ride. The EPs, which marks their first release for the label in eight years since 2012’s LP “Brighter”, finds the band collaborating with their favourite house and techno producers. In their own words: “We have always been very fortunate to meet and know many talented producers. In recent years, we have been exploring those relationships with different remixes and collaborations, and every time something exciting came out. That’s why we started our Synchronicity project. To challenge ourselves making inspiring, fun and beautiful music.”

The first EP features Adana Twins, Echonomist and Axel Boman and will be released in June. Our first taste from the release comes in the form of “Anywhere In The World”, a collaborative track the band made alongside Swedish producer and Studio Barnhus label co-founder Axel Boman. With “Anywhere In The World”, they create an eccentric house number that conjures ghosts of Talking Heads past mingling in a smokey club that would make Adrian Sherwood proud. Give it a spin above.

The “Synchronicity I” EP drops on June 12th via Kompakt. Pre-order it here.

Swedish producer and Studio Barnhus label co-founder Axel Boman is back with his sublime new single “Eyes Of My Mind”. Part world-unifying house music psychedelia anthem, part collaborative Gesamtkunstwerk, the single comes hand-in-hand with a video made by long-time Studio Barnhus associate Malin Gabriella Nordin.

Axel Boman’s initial sketch (made during sessions at Future Classic Studios in LA) was sent to his good friend Malin Gabriella Nordin, who found herself obsessed with the track’s twirling drums, softly flowing melodics, big booya bass and mind-expanding message. The Stockholm-based visual artist put the track on loop, started drawing and painting to sound and wouldn’t quit until 455 individual works lay before her. These images were then animated to create the video version of “Eyes Of My Mind” – they will also be exhibited at Stockholm gallery Steinsland-Berliner. A print magazine featuring 44 of the paintings is also available in limited edition.

The two-track “Eyes Of My Mind” EP is out now via Studio Barnhus. Buy it here.

Seven years into its celebrated journey, Life And Death assembles its third and most adventurous compilation to date, “Displaced Soundtracks”. For the first instalment in a new series, label owner DJ Tennis has given free rein to some of his most trusted contemporaries, enabling many of today’s most respected dance music producers to display their hidden talents as composers. Gathering music from a long-aborted film, the collection stands as another bastion of Life and Death’s perpetual evolution. The 11-track compilation feautres tracks from Simian Mobile Disco, KiNK, Redshape, Danny Daze and more. One of our favorite cuts from the release is “Just Imagine (Part I & II)”, a sublime new track from Swedish producer and Studio Barnhus label co-founder Axel Boman, who delivers a sitar-laced gospelhouse without a bass drum. Enjoy the ride.

The “Displaced Soundtracks Vol. 1” is out now on Life And Death. Buy it here.

It’s been over two years since Talaboman’s excellent “Sidereal” EP, a joint release out on Hivern Discs and Studio Barnhus. It was John Talabot and Axel Boman’s collaborative debut and marked a new sound for the pair, consisting of rich synth motifs and vivid, afro-infused drum programming. Now, the pair come back together with a debut album, titled “The Night Land”, which was recorded in Barcelona, Stockholm, and Gothenburg in sessions that produced an “absurd amount of music”. Set to drop on March 3 via R&S records, “The Night Land” continues Talaboman’s head-first dive into the deeper reaches of their conjoined musical creativity. Our first taste from the forthcoming record comes in the form of the hazy, slow-burner “Safe Changes”, and it’s a great one. Give it a spin above.

Swedish house producer Kornél Kovács, one third of influential Stockholm label Studio Barnhus alongside Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist, will drop his debut album “The Bells” in August. The ten-track record was completed in an intense two-week session with Kovács’ close friend and studio engineer Matt Karmil. Our first taste from the forthcoming LP comes in the form of “BB”, a groove-filled summer jam. Just perfect!

“Kornél’s bells will echo far beyond the nervous and trend sensitive ”dance” genre that our label sometimes is associated with, and into pop history. It’s one of our best, most innovative and creative releases to date, and the fact that one of my best friends has managed to do this on the label we share together makes me so proud that I want to cry. The Bells is the reason I dreamed of starting a label in the first place,” says Barnhus co-founder Axel Boman.

“The Bells” will arrive on August 26th on Studio Barnhus.
