Mokira – Chill Out

Andreas Tilliander released his first album as Mokira at the very turn of the Millennium on almighty Raster Noton. 11 years later, the latest Mokira album Time Axis Manipulation was issued on Ulf Erikssons Kontra-Musik and now it’s time to pick up where we left off with ‘Chill Out’. There’s an air of happy retrospect and light solemnity surrounding the new album – enhanced by the fact that it marks Kontra-Musik’s 50th release. With ‘Chill Out’, Mokira attempts to bring back the dreamlike state from those magical late nights of his youth spent in front of MTV’s Chill Out Zone; to go back to his ambient roots using contemporary techniques and perspectives. The result? Well, imagine Lee Scratch Perry and KLF enjoying an episode of Stranger Things on a crappy vintage TV after being hard at work burying old tape recordings in Perry’s tropical garden. Imagine them sitting together totally at peace in a big, cosy sofa while a heavy haze is building up in the room, pleasantly affecting the eerie images on the screen. We always knew Kontra-Musik’s 50th release had to be something quite out of the ordinary. As expected, Mokira didn’t disappoint us one bit.

The vinyl LP is accompanied with a download code for a mixed version of the album, containing almost double the amount of tracks. The mixed version makes it easy for the Chill Out listener to just sit back and let go of reality for a while, just like Mokira did 25 years ago in front of his old TV.


Kontra-Musik is an electronic music label that celebrates diversity, personality and art. Started in 2006 by Ulf Eriksson the label has today become and important antagonist on the international scene. Kontra-Musik is an independent label free as can be. The label tries not to follow trends or fashion to avoid becoming the short-lived product of the most recent hype.

Kontra-Musik intends to show different angels of perspective, not to convert you to a new Religion or Ideology.


Here you can book parts of the ever-growing Kontra-Musik roster. We also work with a selection of artist out side of the label, artists we believe in and who match our philosophy of diversity, personality and musical freedom. Our touring roster are at the moment: Arpanet,  Ikonika, Kara-Lis Coverdale, Korridor, Mokira, TM404, Olle Bergkvist, Rivet, rRoxymore, Sebastian Mullaert, Sebastian Mullaert & Ulf Eriksson, TM404, Ulf Eriksson


This is where you buy your kontra music to support the label and its artists to the fullest. No middle hands erasing all the profit. Still the main idea of having our own shop is to make back stock available and fight the stressed news obsession of today’s industry. We believe we release music that last over time. And therefore want to make them available over time. This shop is a movement against the hurried Zeitgeist. A movement against the grain.
