Icelandic neo-classical producer Johan Johansson could not be considered anything less than a pioneer and a driving force behind the contemporary ambient movement. Although his music is grounded in non-electronic instrumentation, he has allowed the analogue and digital world to gel more freely, giving inspiration to other like-mined artists. Thanks to releases for powerhouses such as Touch or 4AD, he has constantly grown and evolved, but it's this call-up to Germany's enedlessly respected Deutsche Grammophon which truly instils the sense that he is a master of his own art. Englaborn & Variations is a long and meaningful story, constructed with precision and vision, with the sounds of classical strings taking it from bleepy drone to an orchestral symphony of tonalities. An important record.
