Neel

Spectrum Spools Spazio Disponibile

Italian Giuseppe Tillieci has always paid great attention to the technical aspects of his sound whether crafting in the studio, DJing or playing live around the world. As such his output on labels like Prologue and Silent Season fuses rhythm and texture with techno and ambience in hugely captivating ways. Of course, Neel's main output to date has been alongside long-term professional and personal friend Donato Dozzy as Voices from the Lake, but soon he is to release his first solo EPs and a debut LP called Phobos on the Spectrum Spools label.

Someone able to make music that is as deep and obscure as it is fluid and rhythmic, Neel also performs in three different ways in clubs around the world. Firstly, he is an exceptional DJ able to fuse together the sort of cerebral and cohesive sets that really transport you to another realm. Secondly, he performs a mesmerising AV show with the help of a mysterious visual artist. It recently debuted at Mutek and marries abstract visuals with atmospheric sonics, leaving audiences left adrift in wide open spaces of sound that work the head as much as the heel.

Finally, of course, there are the shows along side Donato as Voices from the Lake, which see the pair explore experimental underwater sounds influenced by nature, African drums, Kosmische and minimalism. Neel, then, is a true modern day techno craftsman who can do surreal and unusual things with sound in truly unique ways.

Ulwhednar

Northern Electronics

Ulwhednar is the collaborative project of Stockholm experimental techno figureheads Abdulla Rashim and Varg.
The duo effortlessly travels between the areas of drone, techno and sonic experiments, as seen in 2013's two cassettes, debut LP and the upcoming second full length vinyl on Northern Electronics.

Submerged in both rhythm and mystery, Abdulla Rashim's shadowy aesthetic floats in balance with his uncompromising work. Wholly dedicated to his ideas and sound, Rashim's quest for renewal and the importance of his craft has reflected well both internationally and locally, where he is praised alike. A listening ear and pure emotion is what his rhythms demand and what keeps him on top of his mission.

Varg comes from the northern forests of Ursviken, Skellefteå.Everything he records is live, takes without overdubs and when he plays live, he improvises his whole sets. He's a straight defender of music made in mono.
He's actually working on several projects for Northern Electronics, aside from Ulwhednar, as the new Varg 2xLP, a darkwave LP with SARS under the name Född Död and has also just finished two D.Å.R.F.D.H.S released with Michel Isorinne and a new 12'' with Hypnobirds on Clandestine. The new Varg material is more experimental than before.

Acronym

Northern Electronics

Acronym first surfaced in late 2012 on his own imprint Dimensional Exploration. Putting out mind bending music and working in the sphere of similar peers like Abdulla Rashim. A few months later he published a 12'' on Rashim's newly found label and platform Northern Electronics.
Recently Acronym was featured on legendary Berlin techno label Tresor's first Demo Tracks compilation since 1999. 2014 also saw Acronym's second EP on Northern Electronics.
