Majestoluxe presents his new collaboration with Boutique Label Icons Creating Evil Art, new single "Money Mules" drops on April 12th!

Majestoluxe, the enigmatic figurehead of Stockholms underground electronic scene, is announcing the release of a new captivating EP later this spring. The release marks the start of the artist’s new collaboration with Stockholm-based Boutique Label Icons Creating Evil Art, which also is the home of genre-sibling EMMON. Our first taste of this enticing release is it's first single "Money Mules", with which Majestoluxe promises bass lines covered in concrete dust and beats infested with severe rust damage!
At the core of Majestoluxe's sonic arsenal lies a massive modular synth system, exclusively utilized to craft each composition on the upcoming EP. The result is an intriguing fusion of noisy techno and experimental electroacoustic art music, that transport listeners back to the raw energy of 80's industrial and Electronic Body Music (EBM). Since emerging onto the scene in 2019, Majestoluxe, also known as Conny Fornbäck, has garnered widespread acclaim for three critically acclaimed albums. Audience and critics alike have been captivated by his unapologetically punky attitude, coupled with mesmerizing visuals, showcased in live performances across Europe and Central America.
"Money Mules" is a gritty industrial ballad, delving into the underbelly of the financial system and organized crime. The dark theme is punctuated by angular basslines and treated field recordings of seagulls versus magpies, making up an edgy and simultaneously imaginative listening experience. The new track will be accompanied by an equally gritty music video upon release, created in unison with visionary film maker Johan Lundsten.
Majestoluxe shares his thoughts on his new EP by stating, "These tracks were conceived while building myself a completely new studio around my ever-growing modular synth system. They are all the result of trying out new techniques and combining electronics in unexpected ways. The idea is to tame harsh noise into enjoyable tracks. Always with very serious intentions, but always with the tounge firmly in cheek."
"Money Mules" is available on all major streaming platforms on April 12th, 2024, offering listeners a first taste of the captivating and daring soundscape that is Majestoluxe.
