In Mountains

A 9 track leftfield/idm album (36m 11s) — released January 22nd 2021 on Beatservice

Kohib is an important member of the Tromsø electronic music scene, equally as a club organizer, DJ, and producer. His debut was on the Prima Norsk 3 compilation in 2005, followed by an album, a remix-album, and a string of highly regarded EPs and singles. Kohib has had success both with his electronica-style releases (the track "Hear This" from his debut album was licensed to the Buddha Bar XIV compilation) as well as his dance floor releases for Beatservice, Sprechen, Cibicaldi, and SpinSpin NYC.

In Mountains is a desire to seek horizon. The album was written and recorded in November, December and January. A time when the sun is absent in Tromsø. However, the origin of lots of the rhythms in the music, are harvested during summer, from the same area. Sound samples are taken from Kohib's surroundings, from creaking in worn-out doors, to ambient silence along the coast. An electronic album, yes. But all the rhythms and instrumentation are analog. The goal has been to give leeway to all elements, by limiting the amount of information. So, if it follows a dogma with this album, it has been to limit the number of tracks to each song to the bare minimum. A sound weighs the most when alone.

Wonderful, emotive stuff! - Sean Johnston Hardway Bros

Tromsø’s finest carry on the city’s fantastic musical legacy with top notch with a hurdy-gurdy wonk. - Ben Davis Paper Recordings

Oh great easy listening music, with great vocals. I think suit perfectly in this time of our life. It is moody, a little bit dark but with a hope. I have to say that the synthesizer & the baselines reminds me the "Border Community" music. I like it very much, great at all. - The Freakshow Greece

Lovely stuff! Moody and grey in just the right way. Reminds me of Burial in parts.I think Break of Dawn is my favourite track, or Before Light. Sounds like a big album to my ears - Jim Lister Brighton FM

Absolutely stunning! - Andy Taylor We Are The Sunset

In Mountains has a inimal feel but it is far fromsimple. It carries with it a melancholic deoths which is really suited to these times. Basically I really love it. - Grant Williams Eclectic

Nice very now sounding and a couple of mellow beauties on here too, could do very well this with the youth! - Bobby Beige Red Light Radio

Amazing stuff. Right up my street. Full support. - Paul Stewart Potato Head Bali

Records often get described as the sound of 'now' but 'Alone in Mountains' title track really hits that chord. The minimal, reflective atmosphere of the record hits the mark of these isolation times. The albums builds from this downtempo, towards the distinctive Tromso and Norwegian electronica sounds of Kin Tooku. A quality and very personal exploration by the artist and his natural surroundings. - James Hickford Purple Radio

A lot to like here, think the most successful are the non dance tracks especially the opener and Let's Meet The Bears. - Bill Brewster DJ History
