Let me take you to the 90s dance floor. House shall be played and house shall be shared!
My name is Heidi Mortenson aka Phtalo and I’m gonna delve into the magic of discovering dance music
from back when synths and drum machines became available for the youngies with bedroom studios and
turntables, up till today. We’ll talk about the tracks played, nerd out a little on the music production and
bizarre details. At times I’ll be joined by fellow musicians and audio producers who pick a track that has
influenced them and kindly tell us a personal story about it. Mostly I’ll fill up your haus with house and
hopefully you’ll have a dance in the kitchen, notch up your mood while working or just cool & calm nod
your head to the beat, while on the U-bahn. Welcome to a place for music lovers of all genders & colors,
and listeners alike. Mi casa es tu casa!

Listen, take a deep breath, gear down for a minute, let the energy flow like the river and come into a state
of calm and collective. We’re visiting some of the icons of new age and around. The women of course.
We’re in the 80s but mixing it up with later artists inspired by these creative synth and modular wizards.
I’ve defenately been inspired by Laurie Anderson to mention one; and in 2010 I had the oportunity to
remix her song Only An Expert. There’s a YT tip with Suzanne Ciani, a norty kinder sürprise at the end,
and the earlybird premiere of a new Phtalo track. Welcome to this music journey.
