DescriptionAlmost twenty years after the release of the last Hardkiss album Delusions of Grandeur, Hardkiss have a new album titled 1991.
Back in 90s San Francisco; Scott, Gavin and Robbie Hardkiss helped pioneer the US EDM/Rave scene with their club nights, warehouse parties and groundbreaking record label. They forged a new direction for dance music with a string of vinyl releases culminating in the seminal compilation, DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR. DELUSIONS made the Billboard dance charts, went to #1 on the Rolling Stone alternative album chart and launched the international DJ/production careers of the Hardkiss brothers.
Reunited in the Bay Area three years ago, Gavin and Robbie have produced a new album that stands tall in the often repetitive world of electronic dance music. Named for the year the Hardkiss collective was formed, 1991 references the sounds and sentiments of their early rave days while exploring new musical directions.
Recorded in San Rafael, California, the album took shape in two home studios that are separated by a hillside hike. Most of the songs feature Robbie Hardkiss on vocals with additional vocals by Austins Tameca Jones and New York rapper turned singer, Scavonne.
