TONITE @ 11:59pm : dj flugvél og geimskip, HEALTH, Fog @ Piccolo Rialto

Icelandic artist dj flugvél og geimskip first crossed CJLO’s radar during CMJ 2015 in New York City, with a magical performance at the conference’s Iceland Airwaves Showcase. Despite her artist name (which translates to DJ Airplane and Spaceship), she is a fantasy-inspired, electronic musician rather than a conventional DJ. Dj flugvél og geimskip explained to CJLO that in her art she prefers exploring the mythical to the mundane. Her upbeat electronic sound is laced with Icelandic and english lyrics that explore possibilities like cats in space. Her thematic explorations follow the philosophy that it is better to sing about what might be going on throughout the universe than earthly relationships. When CJLO asked her about the “dj” pre-fix in her name, she explained that she began her career marketing herself as a DJ so that she would be able to play her original music in between bands at local shows. She has come a long way since. Performing upward of ten shows during Iceland Airwaves 2015, dj flugvél og geimskip is a clear star in her homeland. Her music has the unique capacity to transport an audience to a much more magical place…
