One of my most cheered moments this year was sitting drunk on my living room floor when someone put on an unmixed version of 'Lindholmen - Stenpiren' out of nowhere. Right there and then the most jaw-dropping amalgamation of the first bunch of Rough Trade 7"s, Berlin Super 80 and Gothenburg 2018. Monokultur is a new duo that consists of Elin and Julius from Skiftande Enheter and it certainly doesn't stop with 'Lindholmen - Stenpiren' that just happens to kick things off on this 4-track 7". A beautiful and life-elevating blur that brings selected chunks of the first Cabaret Voltaire EP to mind at times with some Gothenburg harbor messing with Cold Storage-like ambience, before jumping headfirst into ham-fisted Death Disco dub territories while pouring warm beer in the Dome 2 sleeve. Back and forth, it's all happening.
