From his work in electronic pop quartet Bloodgroup, to his output as one-half of Faroese-Icelandic duo Kiasmos, alongside Ólafur Arnalds, Janus Rasmussen knows a thing or two about crafting nuance and restraint. Released via Christian Löffler’s Ki Records, Rasmussen’s solo debut album, Vín, marks a new leap into uncharted territory. It’s a record that finds the producer delving deep to reveal the full scope of his talents.
Recorded in his Reykjavik studio, it’s full testament to Rasmussen following his creative instincts in order to make a record that luminously explores new sound-worlds within the realm of experimental minimal techno.
If you have seen Kiasmos live – especially late at night – you will know exactly what Rasmussen lends to the experience: deft, mid-tempo rhythms, and textured suites of nocturnal synth and ambience. Vín takes that intoxicating foundation, sidesteps the more classically-informed input of Arnalds and goes one further.
Berlin-based techno producer Paul Camillo Rachel alias Aparde’s avant-garde music embodies the essence of impression packed in emotionally touching and exceptional tracks.
Aparde’s music embodies the essence of his way of producing, his goods and technics, packed in emotionally, finely arranged, warm and organic sounding songs. To him, simplicity means to find inspiration and action in direct surroundings or surrounding ones, from a practical view
After releasing his debut album Glass in 2017 via Ki Records, Aparde is evidently on the right path of becoming a serious force to be reckoned with – a breath of fresh air in today’s competitive music world.
