2018 was indeed a busy year for Sissel, having released her second EP on Peder Mannerfelt imprint as well as collaborating on his new LP. She also made a remix for Fever Ray and took part of the infamous Shape platform roster.
With 'Assorted Lights', she pursues her unique blend of minimalism, gabber and experimental sounds to greatest effect. Machines squeal, squeak and hiss in the most natural way conveying passion and emotions with energy from start to finish. Four dancefloor bangers that showcases Sissel Wincent’s talent to create dark, odd, yet cosy atmospheres of her own and some of the freshest dance music around.

the concept is pretentious and tenuous, and associates the album with a figure who undermines its message. In its attempt to legitimize itself with a literary classic, In Death's Dream Kingdom forgets something important. This is dark music for dark times, sure, but the music can speak for itself, and in a much more intuitive language. roel funcken
