Introbeats is from Reykjavik, Iceland intro was introduced to the Icelandic hip hop music and culture around the mid-90..s. Finding his place behind the decks he soon became one of Iceland's finest turntablists, rocking parties, battles and competitions, earning him local titles as well as final positions in some international DJ battles (Vestax Extravaganza Semi Finals in Stockholm 2001 & Vestax Extravaganza World finals 2002 in London,NOW ON DVD!!!). But in early 2000 his enthusiastic approach towards turntablism was put on hold by a new found passionin beat making. After many late night sessions with good friend and Crazy ass producer ,EARMAX, Intro knew where he truly belonged. Only by diving into the world of sampling and cratediggin’ could he start to harvest his musical potential. Around the same time Intro and five other young Reykjavik artists came together in EARMAX's studio to record a few tracks for Mr.Slim's Analog EP. Most of them had either been in groups that split up, or were looking for people to work with, so it was just a perfect fit and the crew Forgotten Lores ( was founded. Since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album in 2003, featuring Intro on the boards & decks alongside Diddi Felix and DJ Bruff, he's been producing for various artists, including the Human Substance project with MC Rain of TMC and the much-awaited-soon-to-drop album Arkir with fellow FL member and vocalist Byrkir. Intro is also a graduate from the SAE school of audio engineering in Amsterdam.
