Our latest single "The King and The Priest" is released 1 September!
It comes with a remix from the Norwegian demoscener Bitbear, who also remixed "The Touch" on our debut EP "Ten Thousand Meters of Desert". Bitbear is also one of our best friends, and no Modulo One track gets released without passing through his pair of ears.
The lyrics are quite short and simple, but what are they actually about? We'd love to hear your ideas!

Our latest track "Isolation Rave" is out 1 March!
Isolation Rave was written as a tribute to the excellent Isolation Rave DJ streams by Straftanz / Miss X and the wonderful community that has grown around those streams and Faderhead's Ghost City Discord.
There's also a music video featuring members of those communities raving in isolation in their own homes around the world during the covid lockdown of 2020/2021. A huge thanks goes out to everyone who contributed their clips!

2020 has been an isolated year for most of us. But we've kept the music playing and the drinks coming in our own homes, and Modulo One want to celebrate that!
The video for upcoming track "Isolation Rave" will feature people partying in their own homes all around the world, raving in isolation. If you want to be in the video, record yourself dancing, jumping, chilling or otherwise enjoying the music in your own home and send it to us here. By uploading your video, you agree that we can use it in our music video, but we'll not use it for anything else. Other ideas we can use are videos of your neighbourhood, landmarks in your hometown, you getting dressed up for the isolation rave etc.
Please record the videos in landscape orientation. Put them all in a zip file, together with a text document with your name and contact information so we can reach you if needed and send you the finished video. Your name and info will not be shared with anyone. If you're ok with us showing the name of your home town in the video, include that. If you want us to display your social media handles, you can include those too.
You can listen to the track here. As you might guess from the title, the track is inspired by Straftanz's Isolation Rave DJ stream series, and the wonderful community which has built around that and Faderhead's Ghost City Discord.
Deadline: 10 January 2021

Modulo One releases new single with Kant Kino, Substaat, Subsquare
Norwegian dark electro band Modulo One releases their new dark electro single "No Way to Win" 1 September. The single includes remixes from Kant Kino, Substaat and Subsquare. "I'm so happy with the remixes on this one!", producer and front man Anders says. "Oftentimes, remixes sound quite similar to the original, maybe with a different baseline or some extra synths. These remixers really went out of their way to make something completely new and unique. Subsquare even added a rap!"
Having ditched albums, Modulo One instead releases singles every second month. The next one up is "Redemption" 1 November, which will include a Faderhead remix.
Why did you decide to release singles instead of albums?
- "These days we believe people mostly consume music on streaming services like Spotify, on podcasts etc. Listening to an entire album from start to finish is not that common anymore. By periodically releasing singles instead of being silent for three years and then dropping an album, fans get a steady stream of new music. It's also much more fun for us to release music when it's done and we're still excited about it, rather than keeping it in the drawer for years. Oh, and no need/excuses to make album fillers! Every song has to be worth it on its own."
What's next from you?
- We'll have a new single "Redemption" out 1 November, with a banger of a remix from Faderhead. Kant Kino is hard at work both on a new single and an EP, and Substaat have several projects coming up. Also check out their recently released version of "Captivate"!

Our favourite scene mag, Side-Line Magazine, just published a great review our debut EP, Ten Thousand Meters of Desert!
They give it a 7/10 and say:
This EP is made to dance and the big kicks are more than a simple invitation to move. (...) It’s impossible to say if Modulo One will be the Norwegian next big thing, but I think we better can keep an eye on it.
If you haven't heard the EP yet, give it a listen now! Links to Spotify, SoundCloud, iTunes etc here.

Norwegian futurepop duo Modulo One releases their debut EP, Ten Thousand Meters of Desert, 26 March 2018 ( Cover photo). Hailing from Oslo, Norway, Modulo One consists of producer and vocalist Anders Schau Knatten and keyboardist Tom André Solli.
Knatten started writing a few tracks as Modulo One in 2013, but the project got more serious in 2016 when he recruited long term friend and DJ collaborator Tom André Solli. The same year they also remixed Substaat’s “Elusive”, a remix which Darksynthradio named one of the best tracks of 2016.
In 2017 they played their first concert, remixed Bitbear’s “Raise the Dead”, and recorded their debut EP Ten Thousand Meters of Desert, released 26 March 2018. The EP consists of three original tracks, as well as four remixes, and is available on all digital platforms through their own label Synthetic North. All tracks are written, produced and performed by Anders Schau Knatten, except remixes by the respective artists. The EP was mastered by Sebastian Komor of Xenomorph Productions.
Later this year another EP is planned, and a remix of Komputergirl’s “Voyager” is also scheduled for release.
