In the summer of 2016 HOVE went to France for two weeks to start writing and recording his new EP «Portes du Soleil». Together with his girlfriend they spent two weeks at Le Pascalet, a house in the woods of the Cevennes, right outside the small village of St. Etienne Vallée Française. Equipped with a sampler, a drum-machine, some synths, effect pedals and a mic for feld- recordings, he built the foundation of the 4 Songs that would later become the EP «Portes du Soleil». All the songs started out as live-jams. The goal was to create different moods and patterns inspired by the surroundings of the forest, long walks, playing petanque and plenty of Pastis. The tracks were later fnalized back home at HOVE’s studio in Zurich. Musically «Portes du Soleil» feels like the natural follow up to his debut EP «Journey to Arendal». HOVE’s tracks are wavering between sozzled grooves and warm, woozy atmospheres. Field- recordings from their daily routine in and around the house were either used to enrich the ambiance, or as in «Calme Infni», they were transformed into a whole song. Even though «Portes du Soleil» was written during the summer, the record is not bound to any season - It is simply an excerpt of HOVE’s life in 2016.
