Elektron Talk: Youth Code

Ryan and Sarah are Youth Code. They have not been around for long, but they will be. The sheer, primordial rawness of their music is something very rare and unusual in our two-dimensional, superficially sane day and age. We got the opportunity to talk to them right before they went on stage, their first time in Stockholm, recently.

Elektron Talk: Karen Gwyer

The music flowing from the dextrous fingers of Karen Gwyer is instantly gratifying. Its like hearing the score to your favorite scene in a science fiction adventure film. But her score takes you further than you thought possible. She lets you experience all those exhilarating and mind-boggling things that happen after the scene ends. The things you never get to see.

Elektron Talk: Martin Sköld

Martin Sköld is one of the most successful Swedish musicians of the past few decades. Starting out as the bass player of the crazily popular band Kent, he somehow, somewhere, found himself surrounded by electronic instruments. His most recent musical adventure, called Closure, looks set to be the most mellifluous surprise to emerge from Sweden since Ingrid Bergman.

Elektron Talk: Nosaj Thing

Since high and far-off times, minstrels have tried to capture their audience using various shock and awe methods. The highest clank, crash, hoot or whistle. In modern-day Los Angeles, that's truer than ever. But lo, here is an artist of that rare disposition that he doesn't need to push all the envelopes to steal the attention of his listeners.
