Sigurbjörn Þorgrímsson was an electronic musician best known under the pseudonym Biogen. A pivotal figure in Iceland’s electronic music scene, whether it was during his early forays into electronic music as a member of the legendary hardcore techno band Ajax or through the many collaborations and side projects he was involved with, Biogen had a personal hand in shaping the last two decades of Icelandic music.
His influence is felt by his contemporaries and will be gleaned by those who follow.
Sigurbjörn was a founding member of the Thule record label and a frontman of the Weirdcore Collective.
This album is out because of all the people who funded and supported the project via Karolina Fund. Thank you so much!
