"Medicine Man / Halland"
Socket Science
Veryverywrongindeed Recordings - VVWI039
Release Date: 19 Nov 2012

VVWI's new Swedish Ambassador to the court of Oof is Simon Gustafson operating under codename Socket Science. Simon co-founded and runs Stockholm based label Astor Bell and we are honoured to have him join us. Simon was one of the early adopters of Berlin and lived there falling deeply for all things electronic. It must have been destiny as he is also a keen cyclist as were Kraftwerk so... tenuous link established!

Back in Stockholm he has put together a wonderfully warm and intelligent release for us that is very much holding onto what may be the only summer we get this year. "Medicine Man" is the sound of a sweltering Swedish summer. We LOVE this in the office. It's well proper. Perhaps the most jolly of all VVWI's releases we sincerely hope it will cast a smile over many a dancefloor. Good medicine. Heap strong medicine.

"Halland" is a wonky, beautifully un-quantised graceful stagger across the astounding terrain of the Swedish region of the same name. We imagine it perfect for taking a very long walk through the natural beauty of that country. Drunk as a bastard on fathers day.

Raise your horns of mead and toast our Scandinavian fore-fathers.
