>>.>Audio Mjao is Christian Niva of Sweden. His release prior to this one (...From the Black Lake, on Corporate Identity) conquered the house playlists with its slightly left, quirky but visceral lo-fi electropop & idm stylings. It snowballed into an unsuspecting obsession from there. This one started as an offer for a two song single but we begged to round it off with a few other solid unreleased tracks we'd received from him, and I think we have something awesome here. Christian's since moved on to dropping cool dancefloor technopop tracks as The Quietboy and more recently Niva. These five short, sweet offerings are pretty much totally crushworthy and demand serious repeated listening..

I told myself only to write about music that has been in my playlist repeatedly or regularly, and that excludes new music. But here I simply have to make an exception. The "old" Swede who forced me to break this rule is called Audio Mjao (Christian Carl Niva). Already his first release, From The Black Lake... (on Corpid) enraptured me very much. But the new Punk Love Ep surely needs no comparison to his predecessor. The distorted, somehow monotonous voice, in addition to that hippy easy beat and the nevertheless melodic, suffering harmony, wow, all in all it is something special. A marriage of punk with electronic music, who would have thought that?

"Punk Love" is second and last EP of our the new and mysterious hero, and is releasable from the situated one of the tag of Philadelphia TBTMO (www.tbtmo.com). Constructed on the same characteristics of the debut, that is basic beat chasing, crystalline harmonies catchy and, candid voice, monotona and leggermente leaked, the new job adds to the universe of Mjao Audio one greater cure for the detail and the agreements, approaching it of some meter in more the center of the track from dance, where all laugh and they are amused.

There are artists, I am really happy if they bring out a new release. This is happen with this artist:: Audio Mjao (behind this is Christian Niva from Sweden). The Punk Love ep follows up the fantastic ...From The Black Lake, released at the Corpid netlabel. Beautiful minimalistic tracks. and a voice, who sounds in a way monotone and bored that it's almost inflaming again. The tracks are often too short for me, like the fantastic "Aurora Hunting". But in these short tracks there are always the power. And this is definitely with these tracks. Audio Mjao's Punk Love ep is an absolute recommendation and shows that there are some hidden masterpieces in the netaudio section :)
