Mule will release the trio's jam-based double-album in October.
The record stems from a particularly intimate set of studio sessions. All three artists have been friends for years: Koss welcomed Minilogue into the Mule Electronic family not long after the label launched in 2005, and since then Mullaert has released all of his solo material through the Tokyo-based imprint. Last year, when Koss was on a tour of Europe, Weber and Henriksson invited him to stay with them in their home city of Malmø, Sweden. It was then that The Möllan Sessions were born.
"All of us love to be spontaneous and do things in the moment so we just hooked up our instruments and started jamming," says Henriksson. "We threw a dice to see in which tempo the track should be in so everything was made out of the present moment. No thoughts about how and when, no plans... We even didn't talk so much during the sessions. We let the music talk instead."
The result is more ambient and open-ended than Minilogue or Koss's usual fare, but stops short of being totally experimental (most of the tracks ride a 4/4 pulse). The album clocks in at 2.5 hours total, with one track ("Hello People of Earth!") accounting for more than hour.
