"Harmonia Family Album includes 12 artists from 7 countries giving their own interpretations of skweee, the synthetic Scandinavian funk. This double album features both skweee -innovators and brilliant second generation rookies like Finnish dub specialist Levon Zoltar and Japanese child prodigy Neo Hetare. The process of compiling these twelve tracks took more than six months, since each track was carefully handpicked from a selection of more than hundred songs from around the world. Harmonia's previous Skandinavian Skweee Vol. I &II and International Skweee Vol. I&II -compilations were immediately sold out after release and nowadays go up to 100 euros on internet. Because skweee owes so much to the so-called world music, we thought of taking the whole thing to the next level and asked our artists to make their own versions of 'ethnic' music. As you will soon hear, the idea took off like a lazer beam in an Ethiopian desert. The results are breathtaking: music so contemporary yet still so archaic! It gives a great deal of pleasure to the listener to hover through the native American mantras of BMMB's Huuhka-Eno, tribal chanting of Ransta Congregate and slavic pfunk of Eero Johannes. Viva Harmonia!" Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve.
