Following on from his contribution to Justus Köhncke's Timecode Remixe EP last month, Studio Barnhus co-founder Axel Boman delivers four typically leftfield house cuts for Hypercolour. Paced by a soft kick drum, "Television People" assembles slinky minimalism around a well-worked Moodymann-esque spoken word passage. "Cubic Mouth" is an equally deep, yet far more melodic, inclusion that while perhaps isn't as engaging, still delivers to complete a decent A-side. "Look What You've Done To Me" holds stylistic pattern but has more of a mid-'90s progressive feel, while the ill-fitting "Klinsmann" builds with euphoria and gospel claps, its mawkish male vocals making it the weakest inclusion by some margin.

More on Axel Boman
.....2010 was the big breakthrough year for Axel and his ass, with the epic screw house anthem “Purple Drank” being released on DJ Koze’s new Pampa Records imprint, going off to London to participate in the Red Bull Music Academy and starting up his own label Studio Barnhus together with Petter (Border Community) and local idiot Kornél Kovacs. 2011 will see Axel releasing a lot of new material and remixes on labels like Permanent Vacation, Moodmusic, Glass Table, Hypercolour, Tartelet and of course Studio Barnhus. Cheers!
