Henrik José

sometimes a simple, heartfelt popsong hits you in just the right spot. so it is with the music of Henrik José. for those of you who havent done your homework, Henrik J. provided vocals for what is possibly my all-time favorite netlabel release, I'll Meet You There by ST, in addition to to his other quality electro/idm/demostyle netlabel releases under the name Bliss. i was quite happy to discover recently that his entire catalogue, as well as some quite excellent new songs are available for download in one place on his brand-new webpage (two of which appear on the afore-mentioned Camomille 100 release). Mr José crafts thoughtful, emotive songs using his voice, acoustic guitar and his demoscene-inspired tracking skills. a somewhat unlikely collision of acoustics and 8bit electronics, but one that works beautifully. Swedish electro-pop to brighten your coldest winters...

Well said Travis.

I've been a big fan of his Bliss work (and St) so I was delighted when I came across these tracks.

I understand he's going to put a new release out on Monotonik soon, but I don't know whether it will be new tracks or some that are already available on his site.

Anyway, absolute quality through and through.

This really isn't a comment on your post. I just wanted to wish you season's greetings before I head off to my holiday festivities.

See you in 2008!
