Exos (трип, Figure, Planet X)
Exos is one of the most experienced techno artists from Iceland since the mid-nineties. He has made a multitude of releases throughout the years, along with his 4th album in 2020. His debut appeared in 1997 with his first Ep on the legendary dub-influenced label Thule records, which
is known for its rare signature minimal sound. His third album, ‘My Home is Sonic’, was reissued in 2015 by Dutch mainstay, Delsin records. It is lauded as a classic of modern dub techno and was voted album of the year 2001 by “mbl.is“, one of most prominent newspaper sources in Ice- land.
Surging back to the forefront starting in 2013 based on critical re-evalua- tion of his catalog, he used this as a fulcrum to renew his already-storied career with new material and reissues of lost classics on Nina Kraviz’ трип records. He opened the X/OZ label for the versatility of the deep- er spectrum while launching Planet X for the harder versions of Exos. This versatility of style and sensitivity both in the studio and onstage are key to his enduring appeal, as he possesses an innate ability to go from the most experimental compositions to the most elegant sound waves, always keeping with a very particular sense of harmony in one of the highest examples of total destruction of endless rawness.
