Synopsis

Product Description
The moniker used by Per Martinsen for his solo work since the first hardcore techno EPÕs released in the late 80Õs/early 90`s on R+S Records, this material also draws from the memory bank of this period & blends these elements nicely into the mix. Ò083Ó carries all of this musical past within it Ð wormholed into the present. It is a roots album, but by no means an attempt to copy the past. Rather it's an attempt to rediscover the present with a strong conscience of past experience in mind. Those who do not remember the past are, as we all know by now, condemned to repeat it.Ò083Ó offers classic MO, where Martinsen goes back to his roots and finds inspiration in Kraftwerk, New Order/Joy Division and the Factory Records scene, the house and techno scenes in Detroit and Chicago in the 80s, as well as WARP`s bleep/headphone music from the early 90s. Mostly it's classic & timeless electronic music independent of both time and trends. "This is a welcome return for the daddy of Norwegian electronic music. Incredibly infectious. Inspect."-DJ
