GKR [IS]

Icelandic artist GKR has released his first major self-titled EP, setting the tone for this emerging talent as one to watch. With Hip-Hop flair, GKR unexpectedly blew up in his native Iceland late last year, skyrocketing to the top ranks of the Reykjavik Hip-Hop scene immediately following the release of ultra-catchy anthem, “Morgunmatur” (“Breakfast”). In less than a year, GKR went from being a virtual unknown to regularly playing sold-out shows for adoring crowds back home, while copping features in taste-making publications like i-D, Noisey, Fact Magazine, plus being watched and shared by Diplo’s record label, Mad Decent. GKR’s approach to life, music and human interaction is part of what that makes him stand out in a sea of aggressive mediocrity.
