I found out about Breidablik the same time I found out about Jordsjø. Jordsjø is simply an amazing new Norwegian prog band lead by Håkon Oftung in the vein of Änglagård, Wobbler, White Willow, and Tusmørke. Jordsjø released a split cassette with Breidablik called Songs from the Northern Wasteland (title inspired by Michael Hoenig's Departure from the Northern Wasteland, no doubt). Breidablik is a Berlin-school inspired electronic project apparently fronted by Waldemar Hoppschnagel who I know nothing about, and the Internet gives very little info. Vinter is the first release on a solid format totally independent from Jorsjø, in this case, limited edition cassette, but can be downloaded and trust me, if you enjoy the Berlin School of electronic music, you're bound to enjoy this. It's as you expect: heavily influenced by the likes of Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, but Hoppschnagel was able to manage this on small modern, portable, lightweight gear such as the Korg Monotribe (for the sequencer parts), Korg MicroKorg, Korg Kaos, and various other synths. Imagine how Tangerine Dream managed to accomplish similar stuff in the 1970s with FAR more expensive and bulky gear, but then that was pretty new technology then. Anyways, it's no surprise that Berlin School is the main influence of Breidablik, because the opening cut "Blackshift" was dedicated in memory of Edgar Froese. I'm only hoping that Breidablik will be able to go beyond just Bandcamp and limited edition cassettes to recording and making this stuff available on vinyl and CD, because any fan of this brand of electronic music need to hear this. Even if you can't get the cassette, at least download it at Bandcamp, because this is some incredible stuff worth hearing!
