ESSENTIALS: “Akureyri” – Crywolf

Crywolf is simply on some different musical levels than most of his contemporaries. Making electronic music that encapsulates the trap and future bass sounds while not at all being defined by them, his productions are the stuff of clear and driven inspiration.

Akureyri,” ornately textured tune that enraptures and surrounds, a real soundscape that you can feel yourself getting lost inside of, when heard on the right soundsystem. Forget pronouncing the track title correctly and just do nothing and listen — this is the five-minute break you need to take today.

Crywolf’s debut album, Cataclasm, is out 19th November on his own Okami Records imprint — and you receive “Akureyri,” along with “Wake (E-Bow)” and “Rising, Rising,” as instant-grat downloads when you pre-order on iTunes. Slick.
