We´re proud to announce our second release of the year, album “Ljóstillífun” by the producer Án. A minimalistic electronic sound embodies Ljóstillífun, Án‘s debut EP. Elvar Smári Júlíusson is Án, after years of dabbling with electronic music. Ljóstillífun is the outcome, while also being the product of his art studies. Though synthesizers and bass drums create an electronic atmosphere, the sound is built around the piano, giving it a human touch.
Elvar Smári Júlíusson is born in 1995 and studies at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. He started to make music under the moniker Án in the winter of 2015. Musically he doesn‘t come from the traditional electronic environment, but instead has been influenced by post-rock and jazz. The icelandic electronic scene is a recent influence for him. More music can be expected under the name of Án, and as a producer.
Released 26. January, 2017
