Release Info :

This is the debut release from Reykjavik-based producers sk/um, aka Skurken and Prince Valium. "í þágu fallsins" expands on the established template for the electronica genre and remains endearing and accessible throughout, without ever becoming generic or mundane. CD housed in a quality digipak. The sk/um release is gorgeous !, our second Icelandic work following on from Borko's 12" and will no doubt appeal to the same folks. it's a lovely blend of melodic (and possibly 'poppy') electronica that may bring to mind things like Casino vs Japan, Isan etc.

The second Icelandic release on Resonant also heralds the label's second foray into the realms of electronica; following the majestic Borko EP (RES005) from early 2002 comes more Grade A output, with this flawless, varied and engaging mini-album.

This is the debut release from Reyjkavik-based producers Sk/um, aka Skurken and Prince Valium, aka Johann Omarsson and Thorstein Olafsson. Should you care, both Sk/um and Borko came to Resonant as a result of our contact with fellow Icelanders Mum, and though the origins are very apparent when you hear the records, each has it's own identity within the parameters of the warm, welcoming sound for which their homeland has become renowned in recent times. Whereas the Borko ep possessed the 'musical box' fragility of what could've been the soundtrack to an animated fairytale, Sk/um takes things on a step with more of a leftfield dancefloor appeal, verging on Morr Music territory.

Available on ultra-ltd 8-track LP and 9-track CD (CD includes an exclusive remix by Arnar Helgi of the opening track "Tomatar") and clocking in at 30 minutes-plus, "í þágu fallsins'" (loosely translated as "For The Fall") expands on the established template for the genre and remains endearing and accessible throughout, without ever becoming generic or mundane.
