Kiasmos prepare new EP

Olafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen have posted details of a new release from their Kiasmos project.

Launched earlier this year, Kiasmos finds Olafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen in full on electronic mode. Crafting wonderful Icelandic techno, the pair are now gearing up for a new release.

'Thrown' will be released on September 24th, with Erased Tapes organising a vinyl pressing alongside a download.

Containing four tracks, Kiasmos originals 'Thrown' and 'Wrecked' will come backed with remixes courtesy of FaltyDL and 65daysofstatic. Stream snippets of all four tracks in the SoundCloud embed below.

The press release comes complete with a few handy quotes. Here's what Falty DL had to say about his remix: "Remixing used to be a very special thing. Not so much anymore. And when you're done, it will end up as a free download and most likely not on vinyl. It's bullshit. So when I get the opportunity to make an actual record, an object that will last longer then any of us, I jump on it. I have pleasures in my life. Doing this remix was one of them".

Paul Wolinski of 65daysofstatic added: "It was quite a challenging remix to do, because it's such a minimal, understated track. The usual 65 approach of pulling out key refrains and messing with them didn't work because the bass is such a unique, dark sound. Likewise, I was reluctant to add too much new material because each attempt at that quickly veered into writing what sounded like a new song. Too many remixes these days are done to provide quick and easy bonus tracks for artists to giveaway, which is a shame, because when done properly, I think a remix is a great way to see a track you're familiar with as a listener in a new way".

'Thrown' EP will be released on September 24th.
