Electronic music, mostly geared towards the more melodic and downtempo side of what is often referred to as electronica, labels like idm and ambient are also applicable to many tracks. Please have a listen and make up your own mind, genres are only so useful in describing music
Fancy bio below, the kind that goes on bandpages and in press releases, feel free to be inspired by it or shamelessly plagiarize it in whole or in parts.
“Gothenburg based Swedish electronic musician Gustav Andersson has been producing downtempo electronica that ventures into ambient and idm territory under the moniker xorb since the early 2000’s. Known for his minute attention to detail and acclaimed live performances.
The selfreleased cube ep collected the best material up until 2005 into one release. His latest release, tiny satellites ep. fuses ambient textures with haunting melodies and intricately crafted beats into a dreamy soundscape.
Both releases are available as high quality free downloads from www.xorb.se.”

“Framför allt är han en hejare på att programmera beats, på att hitta de där små rytmiska avstickarna som gör att musiken rör sig framåt och hela tiden utmanar lyssnaren” Daniel Claesson – Göteborgsposten
“style: experimental, ambient. very nice: the author used software error noises in his tune (listens like a “guru”-crashdown of an amiga500 machine ) (i did sometime like this long time ago, too) the ambient and mystic sounding string is very good arranged and sets a kewl strange feeling! nice beatloop-effects but could be better – sometime the effects (backwards, breaks etc.) sounds too randomly! Very good work!” – Netbeat on “dawn”.
