Anders Ilar is a swedish producer and he makes the kind of warm, dreamy, melodic techno that evokes the wintry landscapes of his homeland. His love of the genre stems from his early interest in ambient pioneers such as Tangerine Dream and Jean Michel Jarre, by way of the dark
(Skinny Puppy, Front 242), the moody (Cocteau Twins, Lush) and the tech-obsessed (Aphex Twin, early Cologne records).
Over a couple of dozen 12-inches and a handful of CDs on labels such as Level, Narita, Shitkatapult (co-headed by Apparat), Merck, Further, Echocord and more, Ilar has built up a catalogue of lush, deep, and occasionally glitchy electronic records that are both useful techno tools and excellent Sunday morning home listening material.
