Over the last decade, Peder Mannerfelt has been at the forefront of the Swedish electronic scene, collaborating under the pseudonym The Subliminal Kid with musicians such as Fever Ray, Blonde Redhead and Glasser. The prolific artist who founded his own eponymous record label because – we quote – « there was too much music », is also looking to tackle socio-politic issues through his work.

Last year he released the seminal Swedish Congo Record, a recontextualisation of a 1950s album which captures the sounds of Central Congo. Having re-created everything from scratch, voices included, he refers to the album as a « research » project, aiming to raise questions about cultural appropriation and musical privileges.
