The Swedish experimental artist shows us some of the records that influenced his latest album.
From obtuse angles to intense physicality, Peder Mannerfelt’s highly individual take on techno demands attention and consideration. While his many-sided body of work reaches back more than a decade, the Swedish producer’s current investigations in the field of experimental dance music are as prolific as they are unpredictable.
To date, he has recorded an accomplished series of albums as Roll The Dice alongside Malcolm Pardon, explored a more direct strain of techno as The Subliminal Kid and also lent his production skills to Fever Ray’s acclaimed debut album and 2017’s Plunge.
After spending previous years releasing on labels such as Hingefinger, Numbers and Lazy Tapes, he now concentrates fully on his own label, Peder Mannerfelt Produktion. With a back catalogue of artists such as Klara Lewis, Machine Woman, Sissel Wincent and Isabella, PM Produktion has developed into one of the strongest electronic music labels around.
Following the release of his well-received albums, Lines Describing Circles on Digitalis Industries in 2014, and the self-released Controlling Body in 2016, Mannerfelt now presents his new album Daily Routine together with a fully formed live a/v show. For our Influences feature, Peder Mannerfelt guides us through some of the records that influenced his latest LP, Daily Routine.
