Monolog - Lift And Hold For Stolen


'Lift & Hold For Stolen' on Plasma Torus is the second album by Danish-born, Berlin-based software junkie Mads Lindgren a.k.a Monolog. The album integrates vast power-electronics and immersive noisescapes within the rhythmic frames of modern electronic dance music including Dubstep, Breakbeat and Drum and Bass, to create rapid, frenzied beat patterns, abrasive melodic noise, fluctuating elements of contemporary jazz and even metal, plus other external audio detritus. It follows 'Aerodymanic', his 2012 debut on Uhrlaut Records.

During his formative years Lindgren played modern jazz in Vestbirk Noiz Ensemble, a 13-man piece known for playing anything from pipes, table tennis balls, washing machines, samplers, antique radios and a thundering bass. He later turned to extreme noise, electronics, Drum and Bass and IDM, developing live sets and DJing around Europe (including a gig at the Berghain Kantine club) whilst maintaining his roots playing Doom Jazz with Anders Holst to Danish audiences, amongst other projects.

Ad Noiseam puts the album 'somewhere between Autechre's rugged sounds and Hecq's sense of dynamics'. It's a testing record that demands your attention and one that stands up amongst the very best in the field. For fans of Venetian Snares, Autechre, Aphex Twin et. al.
