In 2012 the news are worse than ever. Yet among the last of the non-detuned hardware synths available to man, Daniel Savio remains restless and full of artistic zeal. From the sometimes-open window of his studio apartment in Stockholm, a humming and hissing sound brings the promise of spring. Indoors, the air lies thick with sequences reminiscent of turn of the century Flipmode Squad and some of the coldest waves to ever have spread from the Arctic Circle. All from the mind of what his management team and label still consider the third original member of Kraftwerk.
With the coupling of Sweden’s most beloved synth wizard, a Norwegian fast-forward thinking label and a Finnish mastering team – the release of Daniel Savio’s self titled, third album is a Pan-Scandinavian cultural event. With two critically acclaimed solo albums already behind him, Daniel Savio has grown a reputation as perhaps the finest, most mind shocking electronic beatmaker to come out of the Nordic countries. Widely regarded as the inventor of skweee music (as in “squeezing” as much as possible from lo-fi instruments), Daniel’s music continues to find paths beyond conventional hip hop arrangements.

Daniel continues where he left of from the last album Dirt Bomb, developing the groovy 8-bit & vintage Skweee sound. No song is longer than 3 and half minute, keeping the focus. Each tune includes more drama this time and you get a feeling this would be very well suited as sound track to a film or video. If chip tunes in general is too fast for you making you reach for the Valium try some real Skweee instead. Highly recommended!
There’s a healthy number of electro artists on Spotify including one of our favorite electro act The Blotnik Brothers, but no presence of Skweee what so ever AFAIK. Therefore we’ll share these cool Skweee mixes for your bleeping pleasure!
