"THE POLAR DRONES" ,
my 11th album is released by the label GROOVE Unlimited. (Holland).
(This year I am releasing two new albums!!) The first 7 tracks on this album was released as a promotion CD
for the firm Hyperlinkto in 2001. It was then called "En Meny" (a menu). This CD was very well received, and a
lot of people have been asking for it. So I decided to make it an ordinary release. The original tracks are
remixed and edited, and lots of new material have been added. Also there are a few tracks I made for TV
documentarys. Electronic, ambient "polar" music! (for more info/order and reviews: GROOVE Unlimited)
