    25:th of January, 2020

    Performing live with my experimental act Düsseldorf by Night (Lamour Records) at Eter Festival held at Mejeriet in Lund, Sweden on 25:th of January 2020.

     

    In this project, called ”En Ny Ädelsten I Malmös Diadem” - I use a presentation film from 1964 about ”Kronprinsen” - the first skyscraper built in my hometown of Malmö, Sweden - as a starting point. Video footage from the 1980:ies local television transmissions made from the top of the skyscraper in a small TV-studio, are then used as a backdrop to voice samples from the 1964 film. Musically and soundwise this is set in a contemporary electronic rhythmical soundscape weaving the yesterday with today resulting in what one member of the audience at a recent concert described as the sound of a feverish dream.

    16th of November, 2019

    Trying out my new sound art work "En ny ädelsten i Malmös Diadem”. Live performance at Molekyl Gallery, Båstadsgatan 4, Malmö, Sweden.

  • MUSIC

    Discography (excluding tracks on compilations)

    DA BOOK - Mjuk Betong

     

    ALBUM

     

    Old school house esthetics gone leftfield and taken down to around 90-100 bpm. Vocal cut ups, some distorted 707, heavy and rough bass, naive and arty rhythms and one track featuring poetry in Swedish. The lyrics to Mjuk Betong can be found in another section on this website.

    DA BOOK - Kockum

     

    ALBUM

     

    This is a concept album about a city that is no more. The city of Malmö has suddenly disappeared. The old Kockum area is the only thing left. Recorded after dark in a small office room at Kockums shipyard in Malmö in a music style that could possibly be described as progg-punk-tronica.

     

    DA BOOK - Shot

     

    ALBUM

     

    Dark, clubby, sometimes dubby, tech house, 125 bpm´ish mostly. Dare I say Berlin...

    DA BOOK - Monomania

     

    ALBUM

     

    Leftfield, lo fi and with a naivity paired with a somewhat itching sensation throughout many of the tracks. Track 3 is a tribute to Dinge David who used to roam the streets of Malmö back in the day. What if he turned out to be Jesus Christ himself?

    DA BOOK - Sophienstraße

     

    ALBUM

     

    All tracks composed and recorded in Berlin in a small apartment in Sophienstraße during three dark, snowy and freezing weeks in January 2017.

    DA BOOK - The Old Modern

     

    ALBUM

     

    Every now and then I get a vision in my dreams of slowed down Kraftwerky naive music recorded in a church environment with old unprogrammable muffled and monotonous drummachines and choirs singing slightly sad but kinda rhythmically to this. I did not reach the vision here, but I will not give up.

    Düsseldorf by Night - Live In Concert

     

    ALBUM

     

    A live album with my experimental act Düsseldorf by Night live in Berlin, London and Malmö. Düsseldorf by Night was nominated for Manifestgalan 2016, for best experimental album - Images for Tape, released on Lamour Records.

    DA BOOK - Branko

     

    ALBUM

     

    Branko rarely goes out. The blinds in his apartment are always down. He looks through the blinds sometimes. What he sees, he turns into audio.

    DA BOOK - Hudson Soft

     

    ALBUM

     

    Dark evocative techno.

    DA BOOK - Video Erotique

     

    ALBUM

     

    Pop! Synthy, soft, melodic, vocoders. It´s a French summer in synth and Kraftwerky club town! And what is wrong in the state of Denmark?

    DA BOOK - Kinky Happy

     

    ALBUM

     

    Night tripper Yamato meets Tamaki in a Love Hotel in downtown Tokyo. They are both in a state of transit. Japanese cut ups, breaks, experimental, happy, rhythmic. Let´s throw in a German bakery (Bäckerei) for added amusement!

    DA BOOK - Cleveland Rising

     

    ALBUM

     

    Maybe not for the fainthearted? Experimental, noise, lo fi, ugly, with a pounding sugary floppy heart. It´s only noise and no rock n´roll but I love it.

    DA BOOK - Abbekås

     

    ALBUM

     

    Detective Wallanders bastard of a son trapped in an elevator in Abbekås with nothing but a battery operated slowly fading transistor radio playing local juvenile dub music to keep him company. Track 1 and 4 features trumpet by Magnus Jarlbo.

    DA BOOK - Bergmania

     

    ALBUM

     

    Old drummachines found in Gotland make the search for Ruth turn into love in a box. Let´s keep Gotland Rent Controlled says Dr Vogler!

    DA BOOK - Da Book in Da House

     

    ALBUM

     

    Quintessential old school Da Book music. Pump it up. Jam on it. Shut up and dance.

    DA BOOK - Life is Dub

     

    ALBUM

     

    What can I tell you? Life is Dub. All kinds a Dub.

    DA BOOK - Seven Pints

     

    ALBUM

     

    Super old stuff to be found here. Bear with me. So, I put it out there. So kill me.

    DA BOOK - Syldavian Hotdog

     

    ALBUM

     

    Don´t even ask.

    DA BOOK - Mochikas

     

    ALBUM

     

    I have a very basic synth called Mochika. It is handmade in Lima, Peru. It is the foundation for this album. Enjoy.

    DA BOOK - Mossbystrand

     

    ALBUM

     

    An album close to my heart. My childhood summers was spent in my grandfathers house in Mossby outside of Ystad. As a child I loved walking about alone in the rain in Mossbystrand. Bathing? Not so often.

    DA BOOK - Urban Cowboy

     

    ALBUM

     

    Another quintessential rather typical da book dance album. What else? Oh, the "It´s an Ottoman"-quote is by Max Von Sydows character in the Woody Allen film Hannah and Her Sisters, a masterpiece (the film that is). Play Loud in a discotheque of your own choosing.

    DA BOOK - Radio One

     

    ALBUM

     

    I aint no singer. But here I am featuring my sad ass vocal on all of this albums tracks. Well, I guess as you get older you don´t care that much. "Enjoy" :-) Warning - really old stuff here.

    DA BOOK - Noisy-Le-Grand

     

    ALBUM

     

    Noisy-le-Grand is a commune in the eastern suburbs of Paris, France. Some of the postmodern architecture in the commune has been used as a shooting location in movies such as Brazil.

    DA BOOK - 126 Cartridge

     

    ALBUM

     

    This is very typical for the kind of danceable music that I made in the beginning of the 2000´s when living in Copenhagen.

    DA BOOK - Breakbeat Archives Volume 1

     

    ALBUM

     

    Spending the late part of the 80ies listening to the likes of Public Enemy, LL Cool J and Eric B and Rakim I was heavily breakbeat orientated come the 90ies. As a result I did quite a lot of breakbeats back then. I gathered some of them into three albums. This is the first one.

    DA BOOK - Breakbeat Archives Volume 2

     

    ALBUM

     

    Spending the late part of the 80ies listening to the likes of Public Enemy, LL Cool J and Eric B and Rakim I was heavily breakbeat orientated come the 90ies. As a result I did quite a lot of breakbeats back then. I gathered some of them into three albums. This is the second one.

    DA BOOK - Breakbeat Archives Volume 3

     

    ALBUM

     

    Spending the late part of the 80ies listening to the likes of Public Enemy, LL Cool J and Eric B and Rakim I was heavily breakbeat orientated come the 90ies. As a result I did quite a lot of breakbeats back then. I gathered some of them into three albums. This is the second one.

    DA BOOK - Fear of a Bipolar Planet

     

    ALBUM

     

    It´s just dance music. Play Loud.

    DA BOOK - Dansa Apa

     

    ALBUM

     

    I made this whole album in a couple of days in September 2018 in a frenzy without censuring myself too much. Basic, rough, minimal and to the point 123 bpm club music with some old school estethics and simple 1-2 bar basslines by cheap synths and some occasional late night vocals / cut ups. Play Loud.

    DA BOOK - Francois Truffaut

     

    EP

     

    Really old stuff. A three track EP with a breakbeatish vibe. A hommage to one of the greatest directors of all time.

    DA BOOK - The Onion Remixes

     

    SINGLE

     

    It´s a poppy song about an onion. What else do you need to know?

    DA BOOK - Adventures in Agadir

     

    EP

     

    Really old stuff! Some slices from a cassette tape bought in Agadir, Morocco, is sampled and used in the two first tracks.

    DA BOOK - A-Bomb from a Friend

     

    EP

     

    The radio edit was the single from the Da Book album One Taboo To Go that was released by Belgian Label Exit Records in 2001. A lot of the remixes here are previously unreleased. Nina Natri features on vocals. The Radio Edit was produced and mixed by Håkan Lidbo.

    DJ VADIM was born in S:t Petersburg in 1973, but his family moved to London when he was 4 years old. He has lived in London ever since. For the sake of convenience one could describe DJ VADIM as a Hip Hop-musician. But that would be to make things a little bit too simple.https://vimeo.com/78177135
