Following releases on the likes of WéMè Records, sleepers, cpu, 030303 and Aphex Twin’s highly respected Rephlex, EOD joins Bjarki’s bbbbbb.
Born in Trondheim, Norway, Stian Gjevik is a rarity amongst electronic music producers. Possibly the most interesting musician representing the braindance and IDM sounds of today. Dropping on bbbbbb last year, his ‘Swurlk EP’ sold out within a month and received support from Aphex Twin, Bicep, Bjarki, Nina Kraviz and many more.
“It’s the album I’ve wanted to do since I started making music – feels like a dream come true. Inspired by what got me into electronic music in the first place; jungle and early ‘00s Warp/Rephlex “drill & bass”-type stuff, but shifted through my own EOD-style lens. Oh yeah and loads of lovecraft references because I love those.” – EOD
A must-listen for fans of sublime synth-driven cuts, otherworldly beatless affairs and frenetic, machine-driven jams, EOD’s ‘Named’ is a refreshing and highly anticipated debut long player from a true master of his craft.
