Sónar Reykjavík

Grapevine’s Super Special Sónar Special, pt. 4: DJ Magic And Elves

 
 

In this fourth delightful Sonar Super Special Episode, our host Futuregrapher hangs out in front of the best corner store in town with none other than the majestic Lafontaine! With some DJ magic Futuregrapher beams himself to Dj Margeirs place where they have an intimate chat about life goals, football and of course the upcoming Sonar festival. We are excited for Sonar and hopefully you are too!

LaFontaine has been DJ-ing since 2012, released his first EP in the same year and has been working hard ever since. He’s been producing experimental techno as his alter-ego MTHMPHTMN as well since 2013. He’s performed at some of Icelands best venues over the past 3 years as well as putting up club nights and running his own label Rafarta Records with his accomplice untitled2music. He’s released music on a Contrast-R, RawHard Audio and 5 Stars Techno as well as his own label Rafarta Records.

LaFontaine will be playing Thursday 12th at 22:45 – 23:45 at SonarPub (presented by Carlsberg)

DJ Margeir is the Golden Calf making sacrifices on the sonic altar for the lost hordes. His infamy is forged from ironclad production, blistering DJ sets and a twisted sense of humour that keeps his disciples coming back religiously. Margeir is one half of Gluteus Maximus and a founding father of Radio Bongo, from the mighty Kompakt stable – alongside friend and collaborator President Bongo. As a club DJ, Margeir has circled the globe laying down the gospel since the early ‘90. DJ Margeir and his Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Samuel Samuelsson and featuring members of the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, takes audiences on an aural adventure they’re not likely to forget. Margeir’s Blue Lagoon baptisms are legendary, his water-borne party sets ferrying crowds to an otherworldly land of musical plenty. The first of his acclaimed Blue Lagoon Soundtracks went gold. The highly anticipated third chapter will be released in May 2014. Testify.

DJ Margeir will be playing on Saturday 14th at 02:00 – 03:00 at the SonarLab
