The minimalist Helge Tømmervåg has been a long time fan of the dub-vocalist Tikiman from the Caribbeans (now living in Germany), specially his collaboration with the Berlin-minimalists Rhythm and Sound. When they met at the Fløyen-festival in Bergen in 2001, Tikiman joined Mind over MIDI on stage and jammed on a couple of tracks.

Helge sent some tracks down to Tikiman, who picked two tracks that he added his familiar far-out dubby vocals to.

Arctic minimalism meets Caribbean dub!

About Mind Over Midi:

Mind over MIDI a.k.a. Helge Tømmervåg is from Kristiansund on the north-east coast of Norway, and he has been working with electronic music since the beginning of the 80's. First as a member of synth-pop band ToC, and later with his solo-project Mind over MIDI. He has previously released "Trancesurfer" on a CD with norwegian music mag Rock Furore no 8 '94, and "Mindworks" on the norwegian techno compilation XS II in '95.

His early works were in the british experimental style, drawing inspiration from µ-ziq, Autechre and Aphex Twin. His first releases on Beatservice were a series of three vinyl EP's called "Elektrical Aktivity" 1-3. The series showcased both sides of Mind over MIDI, with a "dance" side with acid trance and hardtrance tracks, and a "listen" side with noise-rhythmic and melodic ambient tracks. The best from the EP's and new stuff was compiled to the Elektrical Aktivity CD.

Helge Tømmervåg is now heavy influenced by the mimilal soundscapes of a.o. Hawti...
