?lafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen's collaborative project Kiasmos continues to spread Icelandic techno with new Thrown EP featuring remixes by FaltyDL and 65daysofstatic. After having revealed the title track Thrown via XLR8R in April, Kiasmos announce the release of their Thrown EP featuring brand new track Wrecked and two guest remixes by FaltyDL ? one of New York's finest electronic producers ? and UK's industrial post rock pioneers 65daysofstatic in the form of a 12" Vinyl/Download on Erased Tapes. A1: THROWN ?lafur explains: 'Thrown is the first track of the "New Kiasmos", so to speak. Actually, Thrown is kind of a remix of a new ?lafur Arnalds track that hasn't even been released yet.' 'It has become the track that we use as a reference for all our newer stuff', adds Janus. A2: THROWN (FALTYDL 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', says Drew Lustman aka FaltyDL. B1: WRECKED Janus: 'I don't really know what we were thinking when we started working on Wrecked.' 'Wrecked is our experiment with a new Doepfer synth. The song is severely out of tune', adds ?lafur. B2: WRECKED (65DAYSOFSTATIC REMIX) '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', explains Paul Wolinski of 65daysofstatic. Janus: 'I'm really excited about the remixes. They are both very different from each other and give the songs a new life. It's always great fun to hear someone make the tracks their own.'
