Mount Liberation Unlimited are Tom and Niklas, two Swedes from space who have spent the last five years carving out a particularly vivid niche in contemporary electronic music. Their previous work has seen them connect with an impressive list of global dance powerhouses: New York's Beats In Space, Melbourne's Superconscious, and Munich's Permanent Vacation have all released 12" heat from the duo, while their hometown buddies at Studio Barnhus provided an outlet for what has been perhaps their biggest and boldest release yet, 2017's double smash single Double Dance Lover (BARN 050EP). Their live shows are fervent, fast-paced, and very multi-instrumental affairs, performed non-stop at an increasingly prestigious list of clubs and festivals, serving as prime examples of the MLU boys' core obsession: the interaction of human rhythm and electronic pulse. They have their own great little radio show on Gilles Peterson's Worldwide FM, Australia loves them, and they got their artist friend Tom-Hadar Elde to sculpt their heads for their debut album cover. This self-titled debut on Studio Barnhus has been in progress since the very formation of the MLU project in 2014. It contains some of their earliest work and of course their very latest -- all perfected at the Neve desk of legendary Gothenburg studio Svenska Grammofonstudion, in cahoots with mix engineer Christoffer Berg (Depeche Mode, Robyn, Fever Ray). The result is a sonically fascinating, endlessly generous, and straight-up fun record that takes the listener on a joyride through bittersweet stoner disco, frenzied Scando-kraut jams, and some of the sweetest dance pop to come out of Sweden this side of "Super Trouper".
