Swedish producer Anders Ilar makes tracks that fall toward the dark and wintry side of micro-house and ambient techno.
In 2002, he released Replik for Germany's Shitkatapult, a beat-oriented three-track 12" that showed great promise. He followed that up with the excellent full-length Everdom in 2003, also released on Shitkatapult. Unlike the preceding 12", it focused more heavily on beatless constructs while retaining a subzero chill. (The vinyl version contained only four tracks; the CD version featured six.) Ilar has also produced as Outsize for the Swedish Pinesky and as Rend for the German Plong. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
