Portable Sunsets is the project of artist and electronic music producer Peter Segerstrom based in Brooklyn, US. He previously released his full-length album ‘Bless’ on Atomnation, an LP as ‘Surfing’ on 1080p and another Portable Sunsets LP on Deadelus' Magical Property label. ‘Order’ is the follow up of these records and is a dreamy, somewhat lo-fi experimental techno LP.
Combined with an ancient ambient undertone, ‘Order’ is not losing its club ready vibe. This record floats somewhere between laid-back warehouse techno and the electronica genre - very much representing a unique style: Peter often uses his own voice in his productions, programmed through self-created synths in MAX/MSP. Vocals have become textures and are used as a synth, pad or soundscape.
The combination of genres makes ‘Order’ a perfect record to dream away on at home, as well as to dance to in clubs.
2019-12-2 Very lucky to get the last vinyl...! Atomnation is my secret magic place. All started years ago with playing Machinarium, falling in love with Floex and reading about his love for Olaf Stuut.
Everything’s happen for a reason.
Everything‘s alright forever.

Waves are everywhere.
They are coming from nowhere and making me feel now here. Wandowaiato
This is about as seamless a suite of songs and moods as you're likely to hear.
The album feels self-propelled, so effortlessly does it move from track to track and style to style. It's Hopkins-like in its diverse fluidity.
Rarely is production this precise melded with performances that are equally so. Not only can these guys play, but they can think. There is real craft in the chordal structures that define the album's sense of narrative.
It's place is assured in my top ten albums of 2019. Michael Mueller
