Isak is an American experimental electronic musician. Though he is only 23 years old, he has been recording his own music and producing others' music for over a decade. His work exhibits proficiency in a wide range of genres and oftentimes borrows from many within one song. His music has been compared to other prominent popular electronic, shoegaze, and industrial artists, such as Nine Inch Nails, Aphex Twin, Plaid, and Smashing Pumpkins. His new EP, Snowflower, incorporates elements from more diverse influences, such as Chicago Footwork and Midwest Emo.
Isak's music is internationally known because of his own cosmopolitan sensibility. Since he has lived in and performed in various American cities (New York City, Indianapolis, etc.) as well as in the U.K. (Oxford), he has an international following that he seeks to expand in Japanese markets. His most popular album, "The Letter" (released under the name I.A.M. in 2013) gained over 10,000 streams on Spotify alone within one year, many of which came from outside America.
Snowflower, Isak's new EP, seamlessly blends several different genres within its 20-minute runtime, including by not limited to Indutrial Techno, Electronica, Drum & Bass, Vaporwave, Noise, Drone, Ambient Music, Footwork, Emo, and IDM. This level-handed treatment of a range of genres produces relentlessly catchy experimental music that a listeners from a range of tastes would enjoy.
