Ekvílibríum (Bedroom Community)
Already this man deserves a medal having worked with Björk in the engineer’s capsule for almost a decade and staying patient with Lars von Trier on the soundtrack for Dancer in the Dark, a project which must have felt ten years long. Now he’s branched out with his own record label and a debut album which manages to breach the sonic wall dividing stark electronic mastery and genuine human emotion.
From the spookily vibey ‘Equilibrium is Restored’ to the devilishly thrusting ‘A Symmetry’, Ekvílibríum is a diverse chunk of love from an Icelandic icon. (Brian Donaldson)
