Håkan Lidbo & Alex van Heerden - Simple
Håkan Lidbo is also a very good friend of mine, who I built the Yellofier app with. For me this is some of the most outstanding music I've heard in the last few years. It's like listening to a mixture of Raymond Scott, Sun Ra, Miles Davis and even Pink Floyd. It's mixed together in a very, very abstract way of course, but I love this way of using trumpets and brass instruments with electronic music. It blew me away. We are growing closer and closer together, and we also have a new project together which I can't say anything about right now, but it involves developing new software for electronic music.
