Album “tengsl” is the outcome of a collaborative effort between myself and Slovenian artist X.U.L (Gašper Selko). Album tengsl can be described as a classically infused electronica or vise versa with Bistro Boy and X.U.L playing around with strings and trumpets and electronic soundscape and melodies. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music or download and order Limited Edition CD via Bandcamp.
The process of creating tengsl started well over a year ago when our paths, mine and Gasper´s crossed, randomly. We immediately connected, one thing lead to another and the idea of making an album came to life. Tengls is an Icelandic word for connection, being connected - which is the concept behind this album. When paths cross, things happen. And we´re all connected.
