Named after the famous Gudbrandsdalen Valley, an iconic location in Norwegian literature and culture and where Cavego’s family have long kept a cabin, the EP’s genesis began last spring when he returned to the place he spent his formative years to collect the sounds of running creeks, birdsong, the wind in the grass and create music based on his childhood experiences.
Recently released by the Belgian Eskimo Recordings, Gudbransdalen EP brings us 6 tracks of the best of synthesizers on disco music. Produced by Norwegian Cavego (Even Hymer Gillebo), it is obviously compared with other Norwegian predecessors on the genre, such as Lindstrøm, Prins Thomas and Todd Terje by Eskimo Recordings itself. Kjeiken has beautiful synthesizers, with a super sound design, bright, delicate, melodic and highly appropriate for the dance floor.
