Swedish producer Anders Ilar
makes tracks that fall toward the dark and wintry side of micro-house and ambient techno. In 2002, he released Replik
for Germany's Shitkatapult, a beat-oriented three-track 12" that showed great promise. He followed that up with the excellent full-length Everdom
in 2003, also released on Shitkatapult. Unlike the preceding 12", it focused more heavily on beatless constructs while retaining a subzero chill. (The vinyl version contained only four tracks; the CD version featured six.) Ilar
has also produced as Outsize
for the Swedish Pinesky and as Rend
for the German Plong.
