Croatian Amor

Croatian Amor is the solo alias of Loke Rahbek. He realises a distinct and brilliant intimacy about the bracing pace and chronicles of the contemporary world. Hailing from Copenhagen, Rahbek operates the label Posh Isolation, a place of incubation for many artists from across Scandinavian experimental music, including many of his own collaborators. As Croatian Amor, Rahbek’s most crucial and imaginative account is laid bare. Often using a mesh of real events and places as a platform for a largely dreamlike play, Croatian Amor composing with pop artefacts of the circuits that interlace our lives. Sometimes speaking in loneliness, though often telling of trysts, Croatian Amor presents a longing for indeterminate sensation. Employing a medley of diffuse electronic music traditions, fantastical synthetic worlds are evoked to make this world just a little more habitable.

Running the experimental label and event series Archaic Vaults, Severin Black has been forming a worldwide community around marginalised music for the last two years. Using this as an outlet for his collaborations with violinist Vanessa Bedoret and sound artist Owen Pratt, Severin also has a sizeable discography under the techno alias Nape – the most recent being his debut album on Nick Klein’s Psychic Liberation imprint.
