Fruit is an excellent DJ as well and a very skilled producer from Iceland. He has been active in the Copenhagen music scene for some years now. His sound is versatile but consistent in a particular emphasis of melodic elements and world building. Next up for Fruit is a new EP, released on Øen Rec after the summer.
In the spirit of anti-genre and the aesthetic of beauty, the sound of Xuri is ceremonious and hard hitting at the same time, with this Xuri moves into an uncanny valley of the undefinable sonic realm with field recordings, drones and throbbing beats as the vehicles.
