DJ Nikto vs. Hedningarna

Saturday, 4 April 2009

I’ve just listened to a netlabel release I’d like to recommend.

Hedningarna is a band I’d previously never heard of, that performs Scandinavian folk music on instruments such as hurdy-gurdy, Swedish bagpipes, lute, fiddle and several custom instruments.

DJ Nikto has taken their recordings and run loops through delays, reverbs, digital smears, stuttering pauses and filter sweeps. Simple enough in concept, but the whole is very effective, it reminds me a lot in spirit and execution of some of the more ambient releases by the hallowed Muslimgauze.

The album is available for free from the venerable, admired Russian netlabel Top 40. There are streaming and downloading options at the link below.

  2. Thanks a lot for your kind words! We’re happy that you like the release. Very soon we’re planning to release a new project of DJ Nikto, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to like it – it’s awesome.
