"What is it that makes a great track? Mood? Arrangement? Beats? The message? This has it all. The intro evolves from a combination of pads, vocals, and a deep
electronic bass. A landscape of dark house with a touch of dub spreads it out. The vocals add a glimmer of hope to this landscape and the experience is absolutely
“earliest contender for album of the year” -The New York Times
“a motorik carwash of crisp synths and warbly basslines, while tossing up the icy, melodic phrases that have been shorthand for "techno heart breaker ever since "The
Present Lover". Needless to say, fans of Luomo will find lots to like here. -Pitchfork
“Möller is single handedly crafting the future of pop music” -Time Out
“You imagine that if Bryan Ferry still had an inkling of a finger on the cutting edge of music, this is the kind of stuff he’d be making. -Pop Matters

“I” is the project based name of Sweden’s dub/microhouse/electronic producer Erik Möller who in the course of 10 years has been on the top electronic & deep house
labels in the world. He was also nominated for a Swedish Grammy award for his very ambitious critically acclaimed self released CD “Rebel Swing” Among his many guises,
his “unai” pseudonym has lead him to Germany’s most acclaimed labels such as force tracks, sub-static & ware. His song’s have appeared on astralwerks release of Naked
Music’s, “Lost On Arrival” vinyl & cd compilations. With his new “ I “ project Erik and close friends are set to create the future sound of electronic music.
This is the first single culled from the forthcoming, “One Word” album due out later this fall by Swedish artist Erik Møller who draws upon both “Vocal City” era
“Luomo” and equally parts “Rhythm & Sound” with his unique hybrid of pop-house dub fusion. Throughout “Wide Road” Møller strikes a balance between haunting vocals (à
la Luomo), breathtaking melodies & glitchy fragmented instruments which evolve into an exquisitely melancholy house-borne love ballad. This is the type of sublime,
memorable future-electronics we've come to expect from the echospace family of labels. Stellar.
