In 2011, young Alec Koone, aka Balam Acab, stepped out from his own shadow with material that took the music industry by storm. After establishing a bit of an online presence in 2010 as a buzzy electronic bedroom producer, the 20-year-old Pennsylvania native released his gorgeous debut full-length, Wander/Wonder, an album that would perfectly score a dreamy swim with the underwater ghosts of ancient dolphins. With one record, released back in August, Koone made the leap from capable, inside-the-box bedroom musician to stunningly sophisticated audio collage artist, earning a reputation as one of the genre’s more promising producers in the process.
