Lost but not least! GusGus – Within You (Lulu Rouge Remix) (Kompakt)
From Iceland’s famous GusGus‘s 2011 ‘Arabian Horse’ album… If machines ever had a soul, I guess this then would definitely be on this Nordic collaboration to find it. With Danish pair Tom Von Rosen and Torsten Bo Jacobsen, aka Lulu Rouge signing their best rework ever while retouching ‘Within You’.
As a matter of fact, the twosome have managed to come up with a vibrant and hypnotic masterpiece. An Electronic opera which they’ve built upon various sequences (acts) for much on the fascinating emphasis that characterizes the whole. Meanwhile twisting if not distorting the vibes over a bumpin’ syncopated sci-fi funk driven rhythm pattern. All in all serving as the ideal environment for lead singer Daníel Ágúst Haraldsson‘ part of the job…
‘Within You’ = Gusbumps all over!
Beware of the preconceived ideas! Iceland is way more than what it seems at first sight. In other words, a little Northern Atlantic pebble midway between Europe and America. And it’s pretty much the same whenever speakin’ of music. With one of the most exciting scenes one might think of in terms of both creativity and versatility…
Initially a film and acting collective, GusGus have eventually turned themselves into providers of the finest in Electronic Music. Although their scope is much wider than this. With their line-up evolving along with time, they’ve released 9 studio albums to date. From ‘Gus Gus’, their debut, back in 1995 to ‘Mexico’, 19 years later.
In the meantime, the filmmaking arm of GusGus (Kjartansson and Árni Þorgeirsson) split off to form Celebrator back in 1999. A production company which has since turned its name into Arni & Kinski.
Among our favorite classics of theirs, the memorable ‘VIP’ which saw the light back in 1999 with remixes courtesy of François K and Masters At Work. And most likely ‘Within’ You’ which Danish pair Lulu Rouge remixed back in 2011. Meanwhile the band have delivered countless remixes for various artists. From Sigur Rós to Björk, Depeche Mode and Moloko among others.
