Stephen Wilkinson aka. Bibio, is a British music producer. I know this guy for a long time now (since his first release actually), but I think after his two excellent releases last year on Warp he became very well known.

[audio:03 bibio – all the flowers.mp3] A resident of the West Midlands, England, Stephen Wilkinson developed a passion for experimental music during his time at Middlesex University in London, where he studied “sonic arts”. He developed his own style of music in a hippiesk instrumental electronica way, drawing from contemporary experimental electronica bands such as Boards of Canada, and incorporating field recordings and found sounds.

Electronically modified guitar melodies and droning synthesizer sounds are a recurring theme in his pieces, causing many people to label his music as a hybrid of electronica or intelligent dance music and traditional folk music.

His music has recently been licensed for commercial campaigns by L.L. Bean and Toyota. In 2009, he contributed a cover of the Boards of Canada track “Kaini Industries” to the Warp20 (Recreated) compilation.
