Kiasmos – Bent

Just a quick one tonight as it has been a long day, getting a 6am train to London and only walking back through the door just now. But I really wanted to stick up tonight’s track as it’s from an album I have been hammering lately:

Bent by Kiasmos

Kiasmos are Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds  and Janus Rasmussen from the Faroe Islands and part of the electro-pop outfit Bloodgroup. I am a big fan of the Erased Takes label who released this album (Kiasmos) and I have shared stuff by Nils Frahm and Rival Consoles before, but this release may be my favourite to date. It is an album of truly outstanding deep house.

It actually came out at the end of October 2014 but has been on my long list of stuff to check out. I am so glad I have got to it as it’s a beauty. The track I have gone for, bent, is a perfect amalgamation of  the minimal piano Arnalds is known for and gorgeous electronica and deep house sensibility. Nothing I say is going to capture it, just check it out. Truly outstanding.
