It only took 20+ years of being top of the Swedish electronic music game for PÃ¤r Grindvik to launch his first ever full length release. Isle of Real features ten tracks which traverse a landscape of techno, experimental, electronica and ambient splendour. Written whilst on the road for several months on end, renowned producer and Stockholm LTD label head Grindvik took to hotel rooms and plane journeys for his nomadic production sessions â€“ later polishing, recording and perfecting these demos in Peder Mannerfelt's Stockholm studio.
Throughout the album, Grindvik demonstrates his talent for finding the melodic soul in mechanical sounds. Isle of Real runs with a theme of spaces once inhabited, long since abandoned and reclaimed by the creep of nature. To us, "Headland" encompasses this most coherently and impressively. Built upon timeless techno blueprints, "Headland" aims to haunt with its eerie reverbed bells lingering far beyond its final notes.
A tale unravels in Isle of Real's plains and peaks. A long overdue LP debut from one of electronic music's key storytellers. Catch the pre-order of the double 12", out on May 24th via Grindvik's own Stockholm LTD label.
