    --------------------------------

    Tonik Ensemble is the musical output of Icelander Anton Kaldal Ágústsson. Exploring the vast expanse of the electronic spectrum, the soundscape is a mix of electronics and more organic live instruments. It is a strong signature sound of contrasts: rich and stripped bare, minimalist but intricate, finely crafted and yet very instinctive.The output is a deep, atmospheric pseudo-techno. His album Snapshots was released in early 2015 on the label Atomnation, and met with critical acclaim earning album of the year titles from The Reykjavik Grapevine and album of the year award from Kraumur Music Fund.
