My friend and me have been making music since a few years now under the name of Jokkmokk and we are happy to announce that we will be releasing our first album “Opale” in september. Our music is a blend of electronic inspirations (we listen to a lot of Four Tet, Floating Points, Daniel Avery and Dark Sky among others) and our roots in playing live instruments (we play guitar and bass). We try to write lively songs that have cinematic progressions and love experimenting with new sounds.
Here is the first single from that album that is the most dancefloor oriented track on it, and definitely one of the more electronic ones. It is build around a melody written on the Madrona Labs Kaivo and playing around on synthesizers and a tape delay pedals.
Awesome, and thank you!
Unfortunately we never had the opportunity to play there but we stopped in this city during a road trip with my bandmate and the name stuck with us! So it’s part because we love the sound and also part because nostalgia
Second single from our upcoming album, this track is a joyful instrumental focused on a light acoustic guitar melody following a rich chord progression in a first part, building an ethereal and hypnotic ambiance. The track then switches do a more upbeat second part where a groovy bassline and acoustic drums support a jumping and warm guitar solo.
Super happy to share this new live video with you today. It was film with Hi8 cameras in an old cold room in Paris. It’s our way to play a show in the current context and we feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work on such a cool concept.
