Approved: Balatron

By | Published on Tuesday 20 November 2018


A couple of years on from his debut EP, Icelandic bass producer Balatron is gearing up for the release of his first album, ‘Iðavöllur’. Over the last six months he’s revealed four tracks from the record – not to mention an entirely separate EP, ‘Dat Shii’ – with the latest, ‘Huginn’ and ‘Munnin’, released last week.

With his halftime drum n bass and hip hop-influenced sound, Balatron’s tracks are stomping, cavernous pieces of music. The slower BPM gives them a powerful and ominous atmosphere with plenty of room to step into and explore.

‘Iðavöllur’ is due out early next year, but you should get on this right now. Check out ‘Munnin’ here:
