Johanna Knutsson – Tollarp Transmissions

Tollarp Transmissions is a deeply personal and moving album created by Johanna Knutsson. Closing herself off from the flutter of the outside world in her Berlin studio, Johanna has painted a series of melancholic yet warm pictures of her childhood for Kontra-Musik. Johanna grew up in the small hamlet of Tollarp in the south of Sweden, surrounded by fields, forests and silence – a priced commodity not to be found in Berlin. Each track is named after a physical memory of Tollarp, the intro Vramsån, for instance, is named after a stream close to Johanna’s home and heart. Befittingly, the first timbres of Vramsån remind one of Tuba Mirum from Mozart’s Requiem, solemnly played by an old ice cream truck. A sound every child in Sweden knows. Tollarp Transmissions is not a grand Requiem, however. It’s a heartbreaking Reminiscence.

Vanligt Folk – Hambo

What would have become of D.A.F. if they had been signed to Trojan instead of Mute back in the day? Add a good pinch of absurdism and social realism in the vein of prized film director Roy Andersson and Vanligt Folk might just be the answer. The Gothenburg group’s name can be translated to ’common people’ and they make use of primitive electronics, drums and skewed vocals – ranging from harsh social commentary to the purely nonsensical – to create their own take on body music. ’Hambo’ is the name of a traditional Swedish folk dance that was highly popular among the common people at the turn of the last century. With this album, Vanligt Folk juxtaposes the working class dance phenomena of Hambo with modern day rave culture. This is done in the most blasphemous manner thinkable, as is the way of Vanligt Folk. Concepts like nationalism, race and tradition are all treated with the same merry lack of reverence. The only thing that needs to be respected is The Dance and those who take part in it, whether accompanied by accordions or drum machines. Or both.

This album is a collaboration between Kontra-Musik and DJ veteran Rivet’s label Kess Kill.


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.
