Artist: Eivind Aarset’s Electronique Noir, Bugge Wesseltoft
Album: Light Extracts, Moving
Label: Jazzland Recordings
Year: 2001
Designer: Hakon Kornstad

Type of music: Electronic jazz
Notes: When it comes to Norwegian new music, most of the attention’s paid to Rune Grammofon and Smalltown Supersound. Which is unfair because Jazzland Recordings, run by pianist Bugge Wesseltoft, has been responsible for some brilliant hybrids. Guitarist Eivind Aarset melds breakbeats, electronica and ambience with Eno-esque cloudform guitar and occasional, delirious freeform noise squalls while Bugge’s delightful mix of house and jazz is as infectious as the day it was released. But I’m forgetting that this is a design blog… We’ve featured Hakon Kornstad’s work before, this is some of his earlier work. I particularly like the front covers which only reveal the titles when the light hits the spot varnished text at the right angle, while the imagery of urban, neon-lit underpasses suits the music to a tee.
