Miwon (SCQ's Year-End Questionnaire Part III)

One of my very favourite electronica artists, Miwon (aka Hendrik Kroz) released A To B in the late stages of 2008. The record would’ve no doubt landed among my year-end lists had I found it sooner, but enough about that (the whole sad story is in the review). A To B remains a breathtaking addition to SCQ’s 2009 listening and, here, Miwon provides a breakdown of his most noteworthy selections. (Photo By Sibylle Fendt)
