Arlanda (feat. Jocke Berg) by Adrian Recordings published on 2011-09-23T12:36:05Z With Show, Andreas Tilliander takes his music one step further. His dub influences have become more obvious and the sound is darker and crispier without losing the warmth. Maybe this is because Show was recorded using old analogue synthesizers and hardware. - The sound of modern samplers is too polished. I chose to use old machines because I like their flaws. Their jarring sounds make them come alive, Andreas explains. David Fransson from Division of Laura Lee/New Moscow sings on three of the tracks, among them the melodic Caught in a Riot which will be spinned frequently on all dance floors around the world, eather in its original version or via the numerous remixes that has dropped. Other guests include Jocke Berg and Martin Sköld from Kent. Jocke Berg makes a rare vocal contribution, on the second single “Arlanda”, with another artist than his own band. - When Familjen was touring with Kent in the spring of 2007 Jocke Berg heard one of the songs that David Fransson sings on. Jocke complained about never being requested to sing on other artists’ songs, so I said “why don’t you sing for me?”, to which he agreed! One week later he had written a melody and a lyric – the result is perfect, Andreas concludes. Other guests includes Swedish black magician Henric de la Cour from legendary band Yvonne and Strip Music and Familjen that finally finds a way to pay back to Andreas for all miles on the road. Both Henric and Familjen appears on the crawling Medicine where Familjen makes a rear contribution in English. The fact that Andreas has chosen to cooperate with indie singers and musicians instead of artists from the techno and house genre was not a deliberate strategy, according to Andreas. - I didn’t intend to do a crossover. I have worked with them because I know them and like them both as persons and as musicians. I trust them and like spending time with them, and the result is like i want an Andreas Tilliander song to be.
