Slash Dot Dash Podcast 027: Pär Grindvik
Pär Grindvik, or his pseudonym The Hollow, has been a core person of the Swedish electronic scene since the nineties as a record-store owner (Illegal Stockholm), label manager and producer. He is a well established artist and has been touring for many years and releases on big name labels like Drumcode, Spectral Sound, Saved Records and his own label Stockholm Ltd, which he created and founded in 2002.
Stockholm Ltd began as an outlet for singles and Eps from Swedish electronic artists with a focus on releasing timeless electronic music. Nowadays it's much more, as each release tells it's own story. Pär also founded the sub label Islands & Islets in 2008. Every inch of Pär's work, including the labels, artwork, release info and music, is wrapped with heart and emotion, which keeps the sparkle and curiosity alive within the ever changing adaptations of the artists world.
Thus, Pär Grindvik is one of the most promising names around today and one of the most respected producers out there! With this in mind, Pär was an artist that we felt had to be part of the Slash Dot Dash Podcast family. He asked us the brief and we simply told him "do what you feel". And what resulted is a rare downtempo home listening mix from the Swede.
All the heart and emotion, that's the benchmark of everything he does, is present in this glorious 70 minute excursion into landscapes of sound, that touch you on the deepest of levels. So sit back and immerse yourself in this expansive mix that traverses from ambient textures to late night head nodders and bass heavy sonic attacks to raw hip hop beats in the most elegant of fashions.
