Nouveau mix de 40 minutes pour Mixmag

Björk est en couverture et en interview du numéro de décembre de Mixmag. Pour s’entraîner les oreilles aux flûtes et aux chants d’oiseaux présents sur Utopia, Björk a créé spécialement pour l’occasion un mix de 40 minutes. Il fait la part belle à ses influences, met à l’honneur ses collaborateurs (Arca, Serpentwithfeet et Sarah Hopkins) et intègre quelques titres favoris, souvent joués lors de ses récents dj sets (David Lang, Aby Ngana Diop ou encore Kelela produit par Arca). Avec en prime, l’introduction à la flûte du titre Losss.

dearestest music-lovers !

here is a little set for you . it is most definitely flute and air themed and perhaps reveals the sonic environment my ears were in last year . i thank all the musicians .

kindness , björk.

« Chers amoureux de la musique ! Voici un petit set pour vous. On y retrouve les thèmes de la flûte et de l’air, qui témoignent de l’environnement sonore dans lequel baignait mes oreilles l’année dernière. je remercie tous les musiciens.

amitiés, björk. ».

Classement

10e meilleur mix de l’année 2017 selon Time out.

Chronique

It’s not everyday a new mix of music from Scandi queen of the surreal Björk lands on our shores. But whenever it does, it is most certainly cause for celebration. The somewhat-new-to-deejaying, Ms. Guðmundsdóttir had a rather busy 2017, dropping Utopia, her first new album in three years, plus three elaborately idiosyncratic videos only she could make, while still finding the time to remix herself twice and assemble this mix. (Honestly it was exhausting just annotating all that.) Grab this free mix, at Her Icelandic Majesty’s Request. Time out
