Æ Recordings – the infamous sublabel of Thule Records was responsible for some of the finest techno releases from Iceland in the early 2000s. With the motherlabel on full throttle it was ideal to revive the enigmatic junior label as well. The label was known for bringing in fresh winds into the scene – and this release doesn‘t stray away from the concept at all.
The debut release of Nonnimal, a young and innovative producer from Reykjavik, is both oracular and hard-hitting. The A-side offers two outstanding atmospheric minimal techno anthems – perfect for the late backroom during a long-night out. B-side has three tracks – ready for to hypnotize the dancefloor with its repetitive percussions and its unwavering groove.
Æ Recordings/Thule Records is considered by many to be a pioneers in the field of dub-influenced techno music and was a starting point for many of Iceland‘s most renowned electronic musicians.
