Bård Aasen Lødemel  from his Myspace

Skatebård o Bård Aasen Lødemel es un pedazo de productor de Noruega. Lleva publicando varios 12” y un par de Lps desde hace más de una década en sellos como Supersoul, Radius o Keys of Life (subsello de Sähkö Recordings), además del suyo propio:  Digitalo Enterprises.

El trabajo de nuestro hombre de Noruega es bastante oscuro, a la par que simple y elegante. Su fórmula secreta consiste en sintes delicados y espaciales, más Disco, más Italo, con una pizca de Chicago tardío. Todo ello, con olor a melancolía escandinava.

La relación entre Bård y nuestro Walkman, ha sido larga pero intermitente.  Lo primero que cayó en manos de la redacción de Porno fue su album “Midnight Magic” (Digitalo-2006), allá por 2007. Nos dejó con ganas de más.

Seguidamente, nos hicimos con otro larga duración, “Cosmos” (Digitalo-2008) con temas muy currados como Gamle Furutrær y June Nights South of Sienna. LP, que a nuestro juicio, no hizo todo el ruido que se merecía.

En la segunda mitad de 2010, aparece el EP Starwatcher (Luna Flicks-2010) que incluye Starwatcher II, de lo mejor que hemos escuchado en 2010 !!!

Skatebård, Bård Aasen Lødemel, is a kick-ass producer from Norway. For more than a decade, he has been releasing several 12” and a couple of Lps on labels like Supersoul, Radius o Keys of Life (sub label from Sähkö Recordings), a part from his very own label: Digitalo Enterprises.

The work of our man from Norway is rather obscure as well, simple and elegant. His secret formula is based on delicate spacer synths, plus Disco, plus Italo, and then he adds a little bit of spicy late Chicago. Everything, with a smell of Scandinavian melancholia.

The relationship between our Walkman and Bård is quite long but sporadic. The first thing that Porno´s editors heard was his album “Midnight Magic” (Digitalo-2006), in 2007. We cried for more.

The next piece from Skatebård that came to us was the LP “Cosmos” (Digitalo-2008) featuring amazing tracks such as Gamle Furutrær & June Nights South of Sienna. A Lp that, in our opinion, unfortunately didn´t get the attention that it deserved.

During the second half of 2010, appeared the EP Starwatcher (Luna Flicks 2010) featuring the track Starwatcher II, which is definitely pure gold.
