IGOR or Igor Casayjardin, as he is usually known, is a Senior Technician in Illustration and Advertising Graphics at the Oviedo School of Art and has carried out a prolific work as a graphic designer for Hc Energía and Optima Opción, forming part of the Labshop lineup for the LABoral de Gijón Art Center and developing audiovisual projects such as Bosque (2009, winner at FILMO at the Gijón International Film Festival), CRISTAL (2010, was part of the projection program of the Videoarte Optica Festival), and Probóscide (2011), in addition to cultivating his most underground affection in fanzines such as 1871 and, from the shadows, being part of the Humo Records gang, with his cover designs, concert posters and the video clip for “Plataforma” that he directed for Balcanes. His dark and a tad unhealthy aesthetics match perfectly with the toxic haze that floods all our releases.
It was a matter of time before our musical paths crossed at some point. Because yes, IGOR also has his musical side, both in projects like Suit Tiger or Totale and as a solo artist. In that way and since his first demo “Walk the night” (Contubernio Records) in 2015, with that touch of disco music for zombies, he showed that his face could be even more poisonous. And now that the time has come to accommodate “Misteria”, his new album, released by Humo, of course. Because IGOR already dares with everything, and from the winks to the pulp comics, to the giallo cinema, the stories of diabolical possessions and to the whole subculture of terror delightfully embodied in “Midnight Creatures”, it goes much further. In Dark Entries they would kill for publishing the explosive mix of electronic experimentation, deep rhythms, analog textures, lewd breath, and gloriously tacky finish. But no, we have released it here, and we are delighted.
