It would be fair to call Anthony Linell prolific. As one of the best, well-regarded solo acts since 2011 and founder of Northern Electronics, he’s already released a trio of acclaimed albums, as well as a couple of tidy EPs all the while dishing out deep, subtle and highly textured […]
Fabian Kempe’s productions under the name of Korridor have consistently presented a foreboding and striking assembly. Previous appearances on Northern Electronics have taken in stuttering percussive works as well as tense minimalist designs. His debut album ‘End of Cycle’ applies a breadth of expression to a wide palette of mesmerizing […]
The foreboding title of Anthony Linell’s latest EP doesn’t come as an unnecessary warning. If you’re inclined, ‘Alienation From Self’ presents a stern collection of tracks that thrill and bite in their severe austerity.

Bandhagens Musikforening is the new project from Michel Isorinne and Martin Sander. Their debut record for Northern Electronics tangles mournful, surreal profiles with euphoric, sunset electro. Particular tracks map either end of the spectrum that is to be found, but it’s the viscous mesh of emotive motion that is the […]
Following on from this year’s brooding debut, Anthony Linell gathers a storming double 12″ of material to depth charge vacant participants and lilting movers. Leaving aside his well established Abdulla Rashim moniker, Emerald Fluorescents feels like an agile side-step into heavier terrain with a renewed sense of purpose. Scattered fractal […]
