After Bjarki blazed a trail for Icelandic electronic musicians, many promising artists have emerged from his slipstream.

One is Berlin-based Volruptus, who makes minimal, bassy IDM with a sense of relative reserve: his compositions are uptempo but usually have just two or three warped elements in the composition.

He’s signed to Nina Kraviz’s Trip label, so all the signs are good. It’ll be interesting to see where he takes his sound next.
