Árni Grétar is the vice president of Möller Records. He’s also a flourishing Icelandic Electronic musician under the name of “Futuregrapher.” In 2011, he teamed up with ambient artist Jóhann Ómarsson also known as Skurken to form Möller Records. It’s an Icelandic based music label that represents innovative and notable Electronic musicians who are making noise in Iceland’s music scene. Grétar details Möller’s journey and the colorful and dynamic artists that are represented on the label. Möller has been home to pioneering Hip Hop instrumentalists in Iceland like Steve Sampling and Intro Beats who grace the label with their unique “trip hop” sound. Another artist on the label is Prince Valíum, whose eerie and beautiful ambient melodies bring the listener on an emotional roller coaster. Futuregrapher and the Möller family are scheduled to play at this year’s Iceland Airwaves Music Festival.
