Bookmark and Share

There's a new Kiasmos EP on the way. 'Blurred' is scheduled for October 6 release. Kiasmos is the electronic music duo of composer Ólafur Arnalds and producer Janus Rasmussen. With a number of releases coming on Erased Tapes, including their seminal 2014 self-titled full-length and their most recent work, the 2015 Swept EP, the duo return now with a new six-track endeavor, entitled Blurred, featuring four all new, original tracks, along with remixes from Bonobo and Stimming. The duo had this to say on the making of Blurred:

"To write new material felt like a new beginning for us after two years of touring. The plan was to write something a tad darker than our previous stuff. Spring in Reykjavík had other plans though, as this turned out to be our brightest release to date"
- Janus Rasmussen

"Stimming was one of the reasons we started making four-on-the-floor music and we have been listening to Bonobo since we were young, so it was a great honor that they wanted to contribute remixes for the EP" - Ólafur Arnalds
