Northern Electronics will release the fourth edition of its Scandinavian Swords compilation series, released across two volumes on May 15.

Scandinavian Swords IIII breaks with its predecessors’ forms, the last of which came out in 2017, in that it’s much longer, comprising 40 tracks. With its release, label heads Anthony Linell and Jonas Rönnberg aim to retain their sure-footed programming while “cutting a new silhouette” for what a Northern Electronics release consists of.

The release’s first part is a triple-LP focused on dance music, while the second, a triple-cassette released at the same time, comprises more abstract and experimental sounds.

Linell and Rönnberg, now called Varg2™, feature on both compilations. Joining them are a slew of new and returning voices, including E-Saggila, Evigt Mörker, JS Aurelius, Korridor, and VTSS.
