While it might've made sense to peg André Bratten as a nu-disco producer in 2013, when his first album was issued by Prins Thomas' Full Pupp label, he quickly moved beyond that sound with his successive releases. Following 2015's Gode, a much darker full-length which seemed to completely shun any notion of DJ friendliness, rather opting for a more expressive form of doomy downtempo and abstract techno, Bratten moved from the city of Oslo to a suburb, and he completely rebuilt his studio, restructuring all of his analog music equipment. A series of limited 12" singles appeared, and some of these tracks resurface on Pax Americana.
