when håkan paulsson' raw vocals merge with mellow beats embraced by electronic soundscapes, we find ourselves back in 2015 at maschinenfest with mago right in front of us on stage. albeit missing the visual art, a surplus to the aural treasuries designed by carleklev in collaboration with håkan paulsson, we can’t but give in: mago open our hearts with their creations, making way for our deepest emotions to surface and dissolving any resistance.
we melt into the rhythms; may they be gentle as sand slipping through our fingers or driving us into motion when our minds are blown across the grass in ripples. the all-encompassing electronic sound art is a unique mixture of modern instrumentation with progressive pattern arrangements adding up to perfection. self-sustaining walls of sound surround us, staggering in their complexity and even more when the expressive voice of jan carleklev erupt. spiced up with distorted elements, film samples and just enough room for us to breathe (every now and then), we revive the spirit of the maschinenfest through mago.
