We actually cannot wait for Iceland Airwaves this year! We´ve teamed up with Nicky from Nickydigital (http://nickydigital.com/) and are throwing an Iceland Airwaves Off Venue Warm Up Party on the 1st of November at Paloma, to start up the best week of the year. The party starts at 20:00 with FREE Bulleit Bourbon & Ginger Beer from Ölgerðin for Earlybirds and of course it´s FREE admission.
We´re super excited to present our lineup for the night:
Sigrún Skafta from Kanilsnældur- 20:00
Kanilsnældur are Sigrún Skaftadóttir and Lovísa Arnardóttir. They’ve been playing out since May 2011 with Kanill, a collective of dj’s and friends that regularly hosted club nights in Reykjavik. Since they started out they’ve been all over the Reykjavik club scene along with radio appearances and garnished a strong reputation. They’ve also played in Canada and Denmark. They play an excellent selection of deep house music and their sets will make you want to dance and sing. In 2014 they started a collective of female dj’s under the name Affair with 9 other female dj’s in Iceland. They host bi-monthly club nights where they all dj together as well as hosting a weekly club night where they rotate dj’ing one by one. They also host a radio show at FM Xtra 101,5 which is called Affair on the air.
East Of My Youth- 21:00
East Of My Youth is an Icelandic electro pop duo (Thelma Marín Jónsdóttir & Herdís Stefánsdóttir), formed in May 2015 in Reykjavík, Iceland. East Of My Youth plays melodic, electronic pop and draws its influences from various genres and moods. “Listening to East Of My Youth is as sensual and addictive as getting your tongue frozen to a glacier of pure honey” (Jajaja Music). Earlier this year they released their first single from the EP ‘Mother’ through an exclusive premiere on i-D magazine online and are set to release their debut EP in Iceland and Germany under their own label West of my Future later this year. East of my Youth is now ready for Iceland Airwaves and have been selected this year to be featured by the National bank of Iceland, one of Iceland Airwaves biggest sponsors. Other highlights include playing at Lido in Berlin, Sonar Reykjavik, SXSW as well as showcases in London including Jajaja Music and Soho House.
Conner Youngblood- 22:00
From growing up in Dallas and eventually moving to Nashville, music has always been a big part of Conner’s life. Conner’s music focuses on the beauty in intricate instrumentation, simplicity in song structure, and mostly introspective lyrics. The focus on production and originality in instrumentation results in a sound much bigger than your typical singer / songwriter-Youngblood decidedly carves out his own niche.
Yamaho née Natalie G. Gunnarsdóttir, a DJ from Reykjavik who began playing around 2000 at the legendary city bar Sirkus. She has remained in high demand ever since (and not just in Iceland) having also played in Ibiza, Barcelona and many European clubs and venues. Her sets typically oscillate between the two eminent pillars of electronic dance music, Chicago house and Detroit techno, from where she weaves her hypnotic and technically minded sets. She has also recently begun to produce her own music, following the same lines of dance and quality.
