Music inspired by dense forests and planetary movements
Robert Eklund, aka Himlakropp (which is the Swedish word for celestial body), highlights the secret, the forgotten and the mystical, with music inspired by dense forests and planetary movements. Sometimes the result sounds like techno, sometimes it gets into a deeper, dubbier territory, but regardless of classification, there is always a story or a scene painted in vivid colors.
While techno was the primary inspiration for Himlakropp's previous, self-released album Megamal, his upcoming full length album on Jämmerdosa, Tusenårssömn, has a more organic feel, and draws upon Nordic folk music and dub.
For fans of Trentemøller, Röyksopp and Fiktion, the moods and temperament of Himlakropp will strike a familiar chord.
