Motormännen make information techno infused with an air of Swedish nostalgia through a filter of retro-futuristic skepticism. The music is packed with minimal acid loops and samples with excerpts from Swedish politicians, documentaries and Christer Glenning, reflecting on times when the cold war and the traditional welfare state were dissolving. Inhibitions were relaxed and new, foreign influences crept into the body of society and the old information monopolies. Motormännen’s tracks are visually enhanced by messages from pictures and videos from the 1970’s and 80’s.
Motormännen released their debut album “Informationstechno” on cassette in 2014, which was nominated for best Swedish dance album of the year at Manifestgalan 2015. During 2015 the band received attention from Swedish radio P2 and P3 and performed a series of gigs at home in Stockholm.
“Informellt” is Motormännen’s first release on vinyl.
