Not to be confused with Biosphere (who will appear later in the list), Atmosphere is a Minnesotan underground hip hop band who in 2018 released an album called Mallorca Chillout.
#89 The Irresistible Force

#88 Magnus International
Cosmic disco producer from Norway. All in all there are a couple of Scandinavian artists in this top 100, it’s a region I had for a long time neglected as I did not realize how much exciting stuff is going on there. I hope to catch up in the future.
