Album “tengsl” is the outcome of a collaborative effort between the Icelandic Bistro Boy (Frosti Jonsson) and Gasper Selko, also known under
the artist alias X.U.L.
The album is best described as a classically infused electronica (or vice versa), playing around with strings and trumpets and electronic soundscape.
“The process of creating tengsl started well over a year ago when our paths, mine and Gasper´s, crossed, randomly. We immediately connected, one thing led to another and the idea of making an album came to life” says Frosti Jonsson (Bistro Boy).
The first song of the album is called Endir feat. Ana Noval (violin), Abel Modic (viola) and Maša Tomc (cello), Strings recorded in Studio Adergas, Slovenia.
Gašper Selko is an instrumentalist and composer. He began his musical career at the music school in Kamnik, Slovenia before continuing his studies at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana, completing his education in the class of prof. Tibor Kerekeš. His most recent album “A GuideFor Lost Traveller” (2020) received well earned attention, with the artist exploring the possibilities of a different perception of music and interaction with listeners. Frosti Jonsson is an Icelandic producer releasing most of his music under the name of Bistro Boy named “one of the most creative Icelandic electronic projects that can use sounds to remove weight and gravity from reality”. His latest album release “Drifting”, a soulful journey in sound influenced by electronic music and pop with a hint of classic was released in 2021.
tengsl is their first full album release but their previous release is the remix of the song “A Morning Song of a Cloudspotter” originally featured on Gasper´s Selko second album “A Guide For Lost Traveller”
