Anders Ilar and John H are no newcomers to the electronic music scene. Born in 1973, Anders Ilar began his explorations of electronic music in the mid 80s. Growing up in the small town of Ludvika in Sweden, Ilar spent all of his spare time playing with synthesizers, drum machines, keyboards and sequencers, learning the ins and outs of analogue and digital sound and music creation. Inspired by the early industrial and EBM wave he formed several bands with friends, started playing live shows at smaller local parties, and released several demo tapes in very limited quantities. In the 90’s he gradually shifted his creative influences towards ambient techno and acid and also started to DJ. He started using computer software to produce his music around 1999 and his first vinyl EP was released in 2001 on the german label Plong!, soon to be followed by many more releases on labels such as Shitkatapult, Audio.nl and Echocord. Developing his own flavor of deep minimal dub techno and ambient he gained critical acclaim with his album Nightwidth (2006) for Narita Records in the USA. Followed by highly appraised album Sworn on the german label Level Records in 2008. Ilar has also made remixes for celebrated artists such as Apparat, Mikkel Metal and Ripperton and has appeared on numerous compilations and DJ-mixes. He’s performed live on stage through-out most European countries and Japan, as well as doing a small tour with Notch Festival in China in 2008.
