Multiple artists release music under the name 1991. 1991 is the alias of Axel Backman, a producer based in Gothenburg, Sweden. With output on Opal Tapes and Astro:Dynamics, Backman (who also operates as MCMXCI) often straddles the threshold between ambient haze and minimalist house/techno, his music buried under layers of warped electronics. In addition to 2012's trio of formal releases (Skogen Flickan Och Flaskan, High-Tech High-Life, and the self-titled 1991), he also sporadically shares music on his Soundcloud and YouTube accounts. 1991 is also a thrash/hardcore band from Orlando, Florida. They released a self-titled cassette in 2010 on Post*Records.
