*REPRESS* Feat. Remixes from DAUWD and LUBOMYR MELNYK

After releasing their debut album of unique Nordic electronic sounds in late 2014, Kiasmos – made up of Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen – return with a special 3-track EP featuring album highlight ‘Looped’ and remixes of album tracks ‘Held’ and ‘Burnt’.

Made in Ólafur’s newly build studio in Reykjavík, Iceland, the title track ‘Looped’ was recorded using acoustic instruments next to a variety of synthesizers, drum machines and tape delays. It also features Ólafur performing on the grand piano, producing an ambient, textured sound, which makes it a perfect home listen and equally danceable tune.

UK electronic producer Dauwd (Kompakt/Ghostly), who Kiasmos specially selected to perform at their sold out London album release show as well as remix their track, has crafted a chilled club version of ‘Held’. Whilst Ukrainian pianist and fellow Erased Tapes artist Lubomyr Melnyk has created a unique re-interpretation of ‘Burnt’ in his signature “Continuous Music” mode, performed on two pianos.

“It was an honour to be asked to remix an artist for Erased Tapes. Both the label and the artists I admire. And it was such a pleasure to work with the source material from Kiasmos. The parts had so much texture and warmth that working with them in my own space was quite inspiring. I tried to respond impulsively to the parts and allow anything to happen. I think I achieved something with a balance of the original vibe and looking in another direction.” – Dauwd

“I really enjoy the music of Ólafur and Janus. And this was a wonderful opportunity to take their theme for ‘Burnt’ and turn it into some Continuous Piano. A tiny new cadence crept into the piece. And that this is on vinyl with 24-bit sound is all the better!”
– Lubomyr Melnyk

“We were very excited to get two of our favourite active musicians to do these remixes for us. Lubomyr providing a very special and unique rework with his double piano recording and Dauwd with a great dance centered remix. Both musicians brought out very interesting things in the originals that we had even missed ourselves.” – Kiasmos
