Copenhagen based Music For Dreams are proud to unleash the debut album of Swedens Prins Emanuel.
The first full length solo album of Prins Emanuel is a concept album revolving around the medium of the vinyl record itself. With a functionalists attitude, its two sides can serve two different purposes. Translated from Swedish, the album title reads “Work/Leisure Time”: which are the moods the two sides are meant to reflect. So on an early friday evening, you might tell your girl or boy to put on the A/B -side, as you’re getting ready to bust some moves that night. And on sunday evening, you tell him/her to put on the C/D-side as you’re tapping up a bath. Although this is a multi-instrumentalists vision, the fact that the Prins is mainly a drummer is surely evident in the masterfully hypnotic grooves that form the ground on which the whole album stands on. And while elements of dub, boogie, afro, house and new age flicker by as we ride along on these motorik rhythms, the balance between warmth and repetition is always a tickling tension. For fans of the young Swedes former output with the Fasaan/Chalice label (especially his collaborations with label mate Golden Ivy) this will surely not disappoint.
