The Swedish trance duo Son Kite is back, releasing their first album in ten years. And they are on a mission. “Dancing is a very important ritual. Our main mission as artists is to make people get into this trance state”, they say.

Since the release of their third album “Colours” in 2004, Marcus Henriksson and Sebastian Mullaert have been focusing on their other project Minilogue, touring the world and gaining increasing popularity in the house and techno scene.

With “Prisma”, released on November 17th and consisting of seven tracks made between 2007 and 2014, the duo leaps back to the endless energy and enthusiasm they felt when they first started making music together in 1996. And back to what it’s all essentially about, according to the two musicians: Getting into the all-important dance ritual and reaching the trance state. “This ritual is built into our DNA. We are supposed to do it, and we have always done it. Something important happens when we dance to hypnotic drum patterns for several hours. It gives us energy and fuels us with creative ideas. It’s healing, like yoga and meditation,” Marcus says.

The restless energy on the dancefloors has increased over the last ten years, the duo points out. Dj-sets are filled with incessant peaks, hunting for explosions and “hands in the air” moments. The crowd gets addicted to this hit effect, projecting restless energy back to the dj who in turn starts using bass drops and similar ego-boosting tricks every 5 minutes, trying to please the crowd and harvest their reactions. “We want to challenge that restlessness with our music. It’s very difficult to stand in front of an audience of 20.000 people who wants this nervous energy and not be seduced into giving it to them, but we truly believe that the task of a good dj is to help the crowd let go of that restlessness and get into the trance”, Marcus says. “Dancing for eight hours and really uniting with the music is a reminder that this is how it could be with everything you do. It’s a tool to really connect to life. The sound of our music is formed by this aim”, Sebastian says.

Releasing the album on vinyl has been very important to the duo, as well as using analogue equipment in making the tracks. “The analogue equipment like the drum machines and the sequencers are affected by their surroundings, by all the vibrations and the feelings in the room and by you standing next to them. With the analogue equipment your access to the subconscious is a lot more direct. And that’s the beauty of it. To express what is inside of you and let other people feel that. That’s what it’s all about,” Marcus says.

“Prisma” is out on November 17th on digital release, a digi-pack cd and double vinyl LP.
