Tölva is the electronic solo project of Erik Sleight (Swoll, Stronger Sex, Br'er, Crushnpain, Joy Buttons, Jauze).
Manudaga is the debut full length solo effort from Erik Sleight (Br'er, Crushnpain, Plain Jane). Unfortunately, Sleight and his collaborators had to face an electronic artist’s worst nightmare when the entire Tolva synth station was stolen overnight leaving the project immobilized and uncertain. Instead of giving into defeat, we at BLIGHT. decided to stitch together the music made with the lost the gear into Tölva's first record.
Made on Mondays in 2015-2016 at Blight. Studios, Sleight would come in with a vague idea and minimal gear and set out to explore the sonic capabilities with a limited time frame. Manudaga is the result of these sonic wanderings, resulting in icy groove oriented jams that paint glacial landscapes.
