Bridgetown #69

Aurland Gruvan
mixtape #2: Smaragdgrön Havet

Based in Gothenburg and Oslo, Aurland Gruvan dismantles the core components of electronic songs in house, trance and other club-friendly genres without the use of key/beatmatching or automated DJ software. His ongoing mixtape series serves as a calculated exercise in using manual and hands on editing/mixing techniques to reassemble their beats, frequencies, vocal patterns and structures. Gruvan avoids the petty indulgence to include tracks found on pedestrian dancefloors or to experiment with free-form ideas, opting for a more refined mix with mainstream production values.
