Soul tinged techno

Iceland‘s forbearers of soul tinged techno, GusGus are easily one of the most well known acts in electronic music today with over five million albums sold in their illustrious career. Don’t call it a comeback but their signing to Kompakt marks a crucial step forward for the band and dare we say their most impressive recordings to date. It also marks the return of Daníel Ágúst as a full member for the first time since the 4AD years. Their upcoming album, ‘24/7’, is an overwhelming, multifarious, interwoven and braided musical atmosphere where the listener has to surrender to the music and adhere to the conditions that the music demands. For fifty-six minutes. The recording of latest single ‘Add This Song’ was done live in the embrace of the western circle of mountains in Iceland. It is an irresistible, diverse, interwoven and braided musical ambiance piece where the listener has to yield to the music and hold on to the conditions that the music demands
