Search By Tag: The Land Below

Swedish producer The Land Below (AKA Erik Lindestad) has become pretty much a staple here at Discobelle HQ with his impeccable productions and magical sounding tracks. He is now inching closer to his new album release next month via The Future Sound Of Stockholm.

The third single from the upcoming album is “Walk Like Nothing” and the track is a synthdriven and glimmering piece of pure pop perfection.

Spanish producer Marat Mode returns to the Malmö based label House Music With Love. This time with “Like We Do” a collaboration with Malmö based singer/songwriter The Land Below otherwise known for his cinematic dream pop and indie gems like Don’t Trust The Rain & And On.

“Like We Do” is a tribute to young love, so infinite yet often so short. The Land Below says ”Like We Do is a song of sorrow and hope. A collaboration that came easy as Marat Mode’s beat felt natural and resonated with me. The words are inspired by the dialogue of a movie that Guillermo had seen, so it feels like we both a part to play there.”

Malmö based producer The Land Below lends his magic touch to the track “Someone To Save Me” by New York-based artist I AM SNOW ANGEL (AKA Julie Kathryn, who has been featured in the Huffington Post, Indie Shuffle, Magnetic Mag, Creem Magazine, Refinery 29, All Things Go etc.).
I AM SNOW ANGEL is a sound designer for Ableton, an up and coming producer, and one of the founders of Female Frequency. Later this year she’ll release her concept album “MOTHERSHIP”, which was recorded in wintery isolation in a cabin deep in the woods of upstate NY.

“Someone To Save Me” is released tomorrow Friday May 18th and it’s an exquisite piece of sweeping electronica where I Am Snow Angel’s vocals are utilized in a soothing and beautiful way.

“I love Erik’s production style. The track he originally sent me was very synth-y and 80’s inspired. I envisioned a futuristic nighttime landscape. I imagined myself in that space as I wrote. When he sent me back our mix, he had opened up the production quite a bit and the whole song suddenly felt even more emotional and honest.” – I AM SNOW ANGEL

“When I first sent the track to Julie for her to write vocals, it didn’t sound anywhere close to what it now does. Because when I heard what she had recorded, I felt I needed to rewrite the whole song and put her voice at the center of it. What came out was another song entirely, one much better, and one that puts Julie’s voice in focus. This is kind of like the remix of a track that never was.” – The Land Below

Our local fantastic producer/artist The Land Below provides us with something a bit different today and it’s the soundtrack to the documentary/fiction short film “Fuckgirls (directed by Swedish filmmakers Saga Becker and Christofer Nilsson) which will have its world premiere at the Gothenburg Film Festival on January 28th.

“Fuckgirls” is an exploratory visual hybrid between documentary reflections and fiction where we get to follow three young girls whose everyday life is filled with violence and repression. Through vulnerable dialogue they share their sorrows and fears of loosing control. They find strength through their sisterhood and form a pact to use the extreme methods of their enemies to take control of their lives. A poetic drama between dream and reality.

The original score was written alongside the movie, allowing the two to blend and move together. Looking to create dark and shifting moods, The Land Below uses analog synths to shape sounds and textures. The full soundtrack from The Land Below and Maxida Märak will be released via Hybris Recordings on January 27th.

Mid-week extravaganza here in the form of a smashing premiere.

TSM AKA This Soft Machine returns to Belgian label Eskimo Recordings with his release “Absence Of Rhythm” (drops December 2nd and features Swedish artist Erik Lindestad AKA The Land Below on vocal duties), the single comes backed by a remix from legendary London-based DJ/producer Rory Phillips who churns out a strutting, funked up disco version.

“I lived in London between the ages 18-21. This time changed my taste in music forever. I would do my best to be at Trash Club every Monday night. Here I was introduced to the idea of dance music and rock music being completely compatible. Hearing the Pixies & Talking Heads played along side Dance Music. I remember dancing in the side room to ESG, A Certain Ratio, Delta 5 and The Rapture. Rory Phillips was the guy responsible for the music selection and also my extremely sore legs the next day from dancing all night. I’m super excited to have Rory giving his touch to my own music.”
