I’m very happy to announce a new musical project I have undertaken… and our first release.
Formerlover are a duo of sleaze dub enthusiasts, in love with echo and bass. The brainchild of Sofia Hedblom, a singer and fashion stylist originally from west coast Sweden, and her partner the renowned music producer, dj, and artist Justin Robertson. They effortlessly blend elements of reggae and Lagos disco with the dark sonic underbelly of lo fi house, occupying the twilight region between a tropical sound system dance and an inner city basement, where nights turn into mornings and back again.
Correction dub is a playful take on a late night chat line conversation, where humiliation and desire go hand in hand. Simultaneously seductive and sinister, the spacious frequencies bend as the hypnotic groove takes hold, transporting you to a sleazy, forbidden world where your soul is on the line.
It comes as part of the excellent Viscera compilation ‘Galactic service broadcasting volume 1″. All profits go to the NHS charities together, urgent Covid- 19 appeal fund.

On the My Sweet Machine EP, Robertson returns to form with his vaunted Deadstock 33s project (Skint, Gomma, Darkroom Dubs, Optimo Music, Batty Bass, Tigersushi, Paper Recordings Is it Balearic), turning in four original slices of slow-motion machine funk built for the dancefloor. “Axial Age” starts things off with an arpeggio that sounds like “Crockett’s Theme” gone dark, body music for goth ravers. “My Sweet Machine” maintains some of the menace but lightens the mood. “No Thing Ness” ups the tempo, its rhythmic drive tethered to the dancefloor by a heavy bassline and wonky synths. “Van Van Mojo” rounds out Robertson’s originals with an off-kilter house groove purpose-built for festival dancefloors. Closing out the EP is a storming remix from long-time friend and collaborator Moscoman (Disco Halal, Diynamic, Life & Death). The Berlin-based Israeli revisits “My Sweet Machine” stretching the groove and transforming it into a head-spinning psychedelic trip.
Artwork for the release was done by Justin Robertson as well.
