Book Addi 800 for your mix now!

on .

Happy news! Addi 800 has now opened the doors (well, it's only one door to be honest, and he closes it when he is working) to his spiffy new 5.1 mixing room. We'll post some good pictures from it later, as soon as we find the time to prance around with a good camera. We will probably even have to write a GearPorn™ post about it for the technically inclined.

It's full of shiny state-of-the-art equipment, but none more important than his highly trained and experienced ears. Even we, gearsluts that we are, have to admit that even the best of gear doesn't make good music by itself. We still need humans. And coffee.

All this is great news for the Icelandic music scene that continues relying on Addi's talent on countless projects. But this could also be great news for you if you make music, because from now on you can book Addi for your mixes right here, right now...whenever you read this.

Drop us an email .:here:. for your inquiries, and we'll get back to you with prices and availability. If you always wanted to visit Reykjavík, we'll help you find accommodation, and if you want to work remotely on the internets, that works fine as well. Technology is our friend. Want to try out just one song first? No problem. Just get in touch already...

5 Toggi songs, while you wait...

on .

We are working hard on finishing Toggi's new album, and are happy to report that it's not going to be crap.

As those of you who frequent this site know, we have published some of the songs here, and 3 of them can still be downloaded for absolutely free. But lots of people (two) have asked us to put all the new songs in one place for easier access while you wait for the album.

So here they are. Enjoy, and please share with everybody you know that has ears.

We score a SciFi invasion for Skjarinn

on .

The guys over at Zeta Film were commissioned to film a big autumn presentation for Skjarinn Television.

Don Pedro scored it (well apart from that little known song at the beginning) and got to do the sound design as well, which was huge fun, as many of these drones and alien sounds were made from scratch. Director Baldvin Z had us at "Epic SciFi".

To residents outside The Economic Ruins Of Iceland™, all those people appearing in the video are famous local TV stars, not just some random people.

Eberg - 3 nominations for IMA

on .

Tonight the Icelandic music business celebrates the music achievements of 2009 on television with live music, awards and impressive hairdos. Yep, it's time for The 2010 Icelandic Music Awards.

You might remember that this time last year Toggi and Bjarki snatched the 'Best Song' award, but tonight we are keeping all available body parts crossed for Einar Tönsberg, or Eberg. And we have a good reason to, as he is nominated for 3 important awards.

Feldberg's 'Don't be a stranger' is nominated for Pop album of the Year, 'Dreamin' is nominated for Song of the Year, and Einar himself is nominated as Composer of the Year for his work with Feldberg and Eberg. Not too shabby.

This is a good opportunity to nudge you gently towards Ebergmusic.com, Eberg's FB Fan Page, Feldberg's FB Fan Page and the relative MySpace sites of Eberg and Feldberg. That should keep you busy for a while.
