After 12 years and recent series of re-releases, Thule Records finally offer brand-new material – from the one and only, the Icelandic techno legend, Exos. The A-sides, Downgarden and Citrit are both hypnotic, yet unrelentless, techno grooves with dub influences – sure to be a essential in the record bags of all true techno djs. The B-side starts with Hin Heilaga Threnning – Icelandic for the “holy trinity“ is a gospel of the dub techno genre. Harsh yet subtle. Unforgiving yet full of grace. Finally we have Ormus, a dark and atmospheric journey – tastefully tying together the EP and therefore igniting exciting new era for Thule Records.
Exos (Arnvidur Snorrason) is one of the foundations of the Thule Records legacy. With his numerous successful releases on Force Inc, Delsin & Mosaic (to name a few) and the recent release on трип label, which is managed by the techno diva Nina Kraviz, listeners are sure to expect yet another future classic from him.
Thule Records is considered by many to be a pioneer in the field of dub- influenced techno music and was a starting point for many of Iceland‘s most renowned electronic musicians.
