With a number of releases coming on Erased Tapes, including their seminal 2014 self-titled full-length and their most recent work, the 2015 Swept EP, Kiasmos returns in 2017 for a new 6-track endeavor, entitled Blurred, featuring four all new, original tracks, along with remixes from Bonobo and Stimming.
Kiasmos tease out their first new music in 2 years after playing live extensively throughout the world and collaborating with fellow labelmates like Nils Frahm, namely on Oli & Nils’ Collaborative Works collection on ET. It also comes as Erased Tapes is celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary, prepping a series of concerts in London – which Kiasmos will perform at – as well as reissuing Ólafur’s 2007 classic, Eulogy For Evolution LP.
The duo had this to say of the making of Blurred – “To write new material felt like a new beginning for us after two years of touring. The plan was to write something a tad darker than our previous stuff. Spring in Reykjavík had other plans though, as this turned out to be our brightest release to date” – Janus Rasmussen
“Stimming was one of the reasons we started making four-on-the-floor music and we have been listening to Bonobo since we were young, so it was a great honour that they wanted to contribute remixes for the EP” – Ólafur Arnalds
