Kondens is a collaboration between Swedish electronic music veterans Andreas Tilliander (Mille Plateaux/Force Inc, Raster-Noton and Repeatle) and Stefan Thor aka Folie (Mitek). The sound is a hybrid of techy dubstep with a twist and banging dub-influenced techno. Pure peak time bliss without losing the love for dub and tape delays. The vinyl debut, First Cut EP, includes a stunning deep techno remix signed Norman Nodge.

First out is a fast and broken dub-techno track – Ruddock Rave. Named after Osbourne Ruddock aka King Tubby, the title gives a clear signal of what Kondens is all about – the combination of dub and dance. The dubstep track 0451, in typical dubstep manner, is named after the area code where the song is made and where both Andreas och Stefan grew up - good old Hässleholm in Sweden. The remix is signed long time favorite,Norman Nodge. With a good amount of effects he turns Rudduck Rave into a late night techno mover, giving thought to the atmosphere and mood of the Plastikman Consumed era.
