Pollen 4 Life will arrive around the end of November.
The two producers have been connected through music since they first met at Japan's Labyrinth festival in 2005. Jonson's Wagon Repair label issued two EPs from Minilogue, the former longtime partnership between Mullaert and Marcus Henriksson, and occasionally all three artists would join together for gigs as a live unit.
Pollen 4 Life was conceived two years ago when Jonson was invited to stay at Mullaert's home at the edge of a national park in Röstånga, Sweden. They worked on music for five days. The setting gave the duo "freedom to jam, play around and most importantly, reconnect with nature and the natural flow of ideas while deep in the forest," and although their sessions were mostly of a more ambient sort, the upcoming record "was made on a day the mood took them in the direction of the dance floor."
Hypercolour turned 10 this year, and the UK label is celebrating with a triple-vinyl anniversary compilation, featuring a cut from Mullaert and artists like Luke Vibert, Roman Flügel and Matthew Herbert, that's due to arrive on November 11th. Jonson, meanwhile, has an album crafted alongside Hreno and The Mole under the name Units And Measurements scheduled for release that same day. (We recently featured that group as part of our RA Sessions film series.)
