Hidden away under the white, icy layers that make up the Buenos Aires music scene, the igloo-rec label is melting bodies, hearts and souls with its warm, organic and eclectic sounds. In its core essence utterly experimental and incalculable, the output created by its international artist family ranges from glitchy, weird experimental IDM and raging minimal to dream-poppy indietronic songs. Almost always sounding outright electronic and vanguardist, all the artists tiptoe elegantly around any possible cliché trap and cooky classification, making the igloo a very special place to turn on, tune in and drop out in...
This might be down to the futuristic vision of label founder Dilo, the well-known Buenos Aires and Berlin-based DJ and producer: Embracing the internet as a promotion tool, Igloo, launched in 2005, was created to be a net and digital label the from day one (with most of its output released under the Creative Commons License), placing Argentina at the forefront of things. Fusing new technologies with a strong visual and aural identity, the emerging local currents managed to have global impact immediately, and Igloo quickly became one of the hottest hotbeds for new and upcoming artists from all around the globe, shaping the local scene as well as giving an outlook on international future tendencies.
