KM031 | Jonsson & Alter – En Melodi
While waiting for the new Jonsson & Alter album 2, the duo releases their best 12-inch so far. We say welcome back to a matured duo, whose poetic take on house music hits harder than ever.
Jonsson & Alter’s debut album Mod, released autumn 2011, was the result of an unexpected collaboration. The producers Henrik Jonsson (Porn Sword Tobacco, Gunnar Jonsson) and Joel Alter (Jor-El) ran into one another in Berlin and discovered that they lived not very far from each other in Neukölln. Since they were already acquainted they exchanged phone numbers and after just a few jam sessions, they had created enough material for an album. Reviewers and listeners received Mod with open arms; everyone loved the combination of melancholy, romantic melodies and deep housebeats.
On the EP En Melodi the duo continue to work on their signature sound but production, kick and bass hits us harder this time. En Melodi is a very deep piece of music where a very Swedish sounding and beautiful piano melody sets the tone. But under the sophisticated atmosphere lies a very minimal and efficient drum programming which energy contrasts hard against the melancholy harmonies.
