- “Skurken is the artist name of Jóhann Ómarsson, an electronic musician based in Reykjavík. Someone compared Skurken’s music to “trippin’ in the Moomin valley” – whatever that means. He could be right, although Skurken tries not to analyze his creations too much. Skurken‘s influences include everything from corny 80’s ballads to late 90’s drill&bass and old computer game themes. And probably elves and nature too. Skurken has been active for several years, has released several albums and EPs, had some appearances on compilations, made sound tracks to short movies and more.
“At times translucent and thought provoking, fragments of The Three P’s of Electronics(Plone, Plaid & Plod) manage to overtake the ears with melodic, plush and polished spheres of digital-dust.”
