    Summary

    Peder has spent too much time in front of his computer screen. Despite working multiple careers that include acting (he has acted in an Emmy Award winning TV show and has appeared in Dogme films), childrens radio show host, DJ (nominated for best Danish hip hop DJ), professional photographer, producer of a Platinum-selling comedy album, and recently becoming a father, he knew it was time to record an album with a new perspective.
    As an award winning producer and member of the hip hop production team The Prunes, he has produced, remixed and released a long list of somebodys including the Beastie Boys, DJ Krush, The Roots, and DJ Vadim for labels like Mo' Wax and Grand Royal. The computer has served him well. But after reading an interview with Rick Rubin, Peder decided to follow the super producer's lead, and close his eyes and listen instead of looking at the screen. "When you produce music using a computer there's a risk that your work methods become visual, meaning you look at a screen and try whatever usually works instead of listening," says Peder, "and that's not what music is about."
    The Rubin intervention led to the album "And He Just Pointed To The Sky." It's a very different piece of music for both artist and label. It's slow, dark, cinematic, soulful and it demands your attention. This is party music for ghosts, Twin Peaks tunes for cold winter nights, and disturbingly eerie and creaky sounds for your iPod. Imagine subtle Hip Hop production on Tom Waits or Nina Simone with Nordic Psalms for extra flavor and you're getting a little closer to what this album is about.
    Partly an instrumental record (including a collaboration with Shawn Lee), "And He Just Pointed To The Sky" also features vocalists like Bay Area soul man Nino Moschella, New York based gospel singer Dean Bowman, Danish singers Ane Trolle and Joy Morgan.
    Has Peder, the man who was a catalyst at the beginning of the trip hop era and has since produced a massive amount of Hip Hop, grown up, gone mad, or simply lost the plot?
    Producers of hip hop music or any type of music that involves looking at a computer screen will empathize with me!" says Peder. "The album is not a reflection of my mental status, I feel absolutely great. I just love when music, film and art in general takes you and your imagination somewhere else."
    So please, sit back and crank up the gothic, crackly, theatrical, beaten up, and slightly grown-up sound of Peder.
