Prior to becoming one of the better torch carriers for the Basic Channel school of minimalist dubby techno, Mikkel Meldgaard was playing guitar in a number of shoegaze-inspired rock bands in his native Denmark. His interests became increasingly electronics-based, and by the end of 2000 he had his first productions as Mikkel Metal out on Hal 9000. After an MP3 release for Datamusik, he became a flagship producer for the Echocord label, in addition to releasing a pair of 12" for Kompakt during 2003. After operating solely with the 12" format, he stepped out in 2005 with the full-length Close Selections (Echocord), followed by 2006's Victimizer (Kompakt), 2007's Brone and Wait (Echocord), and 2008's Peaks and Troughs (Echocord). ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
