X/OZ is a label started by Exos.
Exos, real name Arnvidur Snorrason, has been making techno since the late ’90s, when he put out a number of records on Thule and Force Inc. Music Works. Snorrason’s career got a boost after he was featured on the first release from Nina Kraviz’s label трип, where he’s been a regular ever since. Now he’s starting his own imprint, X/OZ, with a compilation – Invisible Limits Vol. 1 – that features a number of his close collaborators.
In addition to two new tracks by Snorrason himself, Invisible Limits Vol. 1 features music from his father, Octal—one is a remix by the coincidentally-named Octal Industries, AKA Ruxpin, and the other is a collaboration between Octal, Ruxpin and Exos. Fellow трип associate and Icelander Bjarki also contributes a track, and the release is rounded off by young Russian producer Soschla.
Invisible Limits Vol. 1 was released on vinyl in June 20th 2017 with a digital release to follow in fall 2017.
