With his new electronic outrun music project BERGETON, Morten Bergeton Iversen (Teloch of the Norwegian black metal band MAYHEM) has succeeded in creating a hard hitting album by the name Miami Murder which takes the listener on a retrofuturistic ride through nostalgic landscapes of commodore 64 square waves. The atmospheric presence of a neo-¬noir necropolis mega citys, combined with a raw adrenaline bass sounds that punch you in the gut, Miami Murder could fit right in the genre of games like Hotline Miami. Combining perfectly executed waves of new and old technology, Miami Murder is an album that has your nostalgic cravings covered.
Morten started experimenting with electronic sounds back in 2000-¬2005 in order to push him creatively and produce something new, and Miami Murder is BERGETON´s take on the sythwave/outrun genre with Morten’s own twist.
Written and recorded in Oslo Norway during 2018, Morten did not have any time to release and promote his new epic creation due to writing obligations for MAYHEM, but now he is finally taking these fascinations to the max. The sound of these tracks is powerful and balanced, with a focus on heavy droning bass lines and hard-¬hitting grooves that underlie a lot of melodic ornamentation.
If you miss the engineered futuresynth sounds of the 80s horror, sci-¬fi and action movies, this retrowave album was made for you!
