Varg will soon release a new album and the fifth chapter in his Nordic Flora series, this time on the Danish Posh Isolation imprint. 

Posh Isolation founders, Loke Rahbek and Christian Stadsgaard, together Damien Dubrovnik, have seen many releases in the past from Varg, including Pt. 2 of the Nordic Flora Series, released on cassette.  

The series really made a mark when he reached Pt. 3: Gore-Tex City, release on Varg's own Northern Electronics (which he manages with Anthony Linell, formerly known as Abdullah Rashim). The album introduced Varg as a man of many collaborations as genre-bending tracks featured Yung Lean, Alessandro Cortini, Drew McDowall, the painter Chloe Wise, and AnnaMelina. Varg then curated an entire day of Berlin’s Atonal and brought the album to life on the stage. He also formed a strong creative bond with AnnaMelina as the two together now perform as FLORA. 

Nordic Flora Series Pt. 5: Crush has a similar cast of characters including Chloe Wise, AnnaMelina, Vanity Productions, Ecco2k and more. The album will be released on 2x12” and digital formats and along with it there will be a unique tape release of Nordic Flora Series Pt. 4, available in a bundle with a t-shirt and the Crush 2xLP (only 100 cassettes available).

True to the Nordic Flora Series, the artwork comes from American multidisciplinary artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt.
