Ichisan is Igor Skafar, one of the most prominent Slovenian photographers, who started his relationship with music playing guitar in various bands. He has later developed preference for electronical sounds, which he blended with his organic feel and started producing his own projects.
In March 2008 he has awaited his first solo 12’’ international release on London’s Airthight Recordings. “Global Pillage and Tips & Tricks” were very positively accepted and got many favorable reviews, including a four star review from iDj magazine. With this release Ichisan received considerable recognition pinning him alongside greats such as Bjorn Torske, Pete Herbert, Prins Thomas, Aeroplane and many more that dabble in excellent soundscape epics.
Since then on Ichisan’s music is linked with best nu-disco record labels and well known names from the nu disco scene.
His discography from first release on is quite impressive: a track “Radar Pulse Is Sent” for the Eskimo recordings compilation “Cosmic Balearic Beats Vol.1” , “Space Patrol” 12” on Solardisco, The Full bet EP on Airtight and "Snow Shower” on Rare Wiri” s 12” Space Disco Vol.1 (all released in 2009).
