…and finally, I present to you “Color/Greyscale”

“Unknown Cause – Color/Greyscale”   a norwegian urban myth

Still there?

It`s been a long year. And I`ve been quiet. Not much to report about the progress of the release, other than “it`s in the works” and “just hold out a little longer”…

That is, until now.

I proudly present to you, “Color/Greyscale”

Magnus medium

A sonic voyage through the wide pallette of Unknown Cause`s varied style. A double release roughly divided into “Color” and “Greyscale”; the former reflecting the melodic and emotional aspect, while the latter ventures deep into the hypnotic, chilled and misty side of his style. 

The album is presented as both double heavyweight vinyl and double digipak-cd, all neatly decorated by the talented Andrew Jones.

The vinyl comes on double 180g vinyl in heavy-weight innersleeves packed in a glossy gatefold, including full-size poster, sticker and download-card.

Vinyl small

The double CD is printed on a glossy digipak that really makes the artwork shine.

CD small


“Color/Greyscale” is now available for purchase in the webshop as both double CD and double heavyweight 12″.

END OF DAYS retrospective

A little late thanks for the awesome evening of 21. Dec at Ballroom. So happy for all the support from all the people who showed up, the energy was through the roof! Super-thanks to KLARTRAUM and MASOMENOS for awesome music throughout the night! A big up for the FLOWERS of LIFE crew, who really worked their asses off to make the place look as magical as it did.

We had some technical difficulties during the night due to a fault in the electrical system witch resulted in the full-stop of the main sound-system. We did our best to fix it as well as the situation allowed, and the party went on with the uncanny support of the dancers 😀

Color/Greyscale previews

We know you are waiting, and so are we :)
Things don`t always follow the time-schedule you`ve set up in your mind, and this project has grown exponentially since it was started. We can now happily tell you that the wonderfully talented Android Jones is working on the artwork for “Color/Greyscale”, wich you see a small excerpt from above :) Super-stoked about this, as a huge fan of his intricate visual style. Hope you are too!


…soon I tell you, soon…

-Unknown Cause (Tie & Tail // Oslo)

UC is Magnus Støren Wedén, who is releasing his debut album “Color/Greyscale” on the Oslo-based label Tie & Tail this special night.
“Color/Greyscale” is the culmination of innumerable hours in the studio, where he has developed his musical style into something that constantly pushes today`s definitions of electronic music.
“Color/Greyscale” each represent a division in style, the “Color” side reflecting the blissfully melodic, genre-unrestrained part of the project, and “Greyscale

” the more hypnotizing, mesmerizing and relaxed part of the release.
He will tonight present the music from the album, and with his music being very stylistically varied this will surely lead to a very dynamic and progressive sound-stage that can be enjoyed from the dancefloor and sofa both.

-Masomenos (Welcome To Masomenos // Paris)

Masomenos, is a productive partnership between Joan Costes, a graphic designer and DJ, and Adrien de Maublanc, a producer and sound engineer. They both clearly have a ball with ‘Welcome to Masomenos’ an audio-visual system they use to produce their spontaneous, lighthearted, psychedelic, no limits universe.
When they met in 2006, they almost immediately started working together, expressing themselves throughout different medias such as image, videos, and sound, finding in Masomenos a great playground for their creativity.
Having played all around the world in some of the most renowned clubs, its time to bring Oslo a treat in the form of 1 hour live set and 1 hour dj set to top off the evening.
