WATCH: Rødhåd & VRIL unveil concept album with music video

Rødhåd’s ventures into modern techno have sent ripples through the club circuit and beyond. In the last couple of years he created a new imprint called WSNWG as a platform for him to release collaborations made in his WSNWG Studio in Berlin. 


The next project comes as a fantastical collaborative album with German producer and live act VRIL titled ‘Out Of Place Artefacts’. VRIL joins him in the studio following a first jam session in 2017, hot on the heels of an epic double EP on Marcel Dettmann’s Bad Manners. Strange anomalies are scattered throughout the world. 
Things that could not possibly belong to the time period or place in which they were found. These so-called out of place artifacts baffle historians & archaeologists up until today and have inspired producers Vril & Rødhåd to write a collaborative concept album. As a result the two producers got together in the studio with the idea to subvert the expectations of their previous work. 

They experimented over two sessions in 2018 and 2019, resulting in a record showcasing a different palette of sounds and tempo. The album is suited for deep listening and exploring aforementioned concepts or introspection in general. A mystic tone is set from the start, and grips the listener throughout the whole run time. Each track encapsulates this notion in its own unique form, blending sonic ambience and complex beats that reach spectral heights. Both producer’s styles shine individually, but the collaboration achieves something greater than the sum of its parts.
