Nordic Interstitial Thresholds: “Winter Tales For Abandoned Children….”

Are you sitting comfortably?

Then we’ll begin…

This is the last #NITCAST of 2013 and luckily it’s just in time for the run up to the Winter Solstice and Xmas holidays. Perfect for when you are sitting at your desk late at night, polishing off that last 3 fingers of whisky before the fog of sleep overcomes you. What we have lined up for you is a nice loooong drawn out collection of disturbing and eerie sounds. 

Protip – always have at least one light on when playing. wouldn’t want to tempt fate now, would we?

If you like what you are hearing and not prone to night terrors, then you can download an mp3 copy right HERE

Andskotinn Einmana Jökull Tónlist – Episode 5, The Blood Feast Of Grýla…


Whoo Hoo! it´s been, what… 2 months already? Well with Airwaves less than a week away, I thought it would be best to put together another special NITcast of Icelandic music, that had nothing to do with Airwaves at all! that’s who I roll peeps!

This latest edition is a musical offering to Grýla, the horrifying monster that was known to eat kids in the wintertime and stuff. Apparently stories about her were so scary that in ye olde times, they actually passed a law to stop telling stories about her because the kids were getting too traumatised to do their 12 hours a day of unrelenting work.

So with that in mind, this mix is a big 99 minutes lab of true, decent Icelandic music (So no Dikta or Dimma then!) that you can stream or download and listen to your heart’s content. From classic favourites to RSF such as HJALTALÍN, I ADAPT, LAY LOW, JAN MAYEN, and TRÚBROT, as well as some not so well known artists. Oh, and we also have one of the most offensive records ever to have been released in Iceland. If you are Icelandic, be warned…. this will turn your cow’s milk sour! Careful now…

A special thanks for this mix goes out to my friend Sævar Markús, who loaned a HUGE amount of old (and somewhat rare) vinyl for me to rip and use in this mix. Some of the records were rather old and creaky, but when some of them records are nearly 40 years old, you tend not to complain too much about them. Sævar, the help was much appreciated!

If you like what you hear, then you can also download the track HERE

Nordic Interstitial thresholds: We would Become Ruins


After what was a bit of an enforced break, I’ve decided to get back into the mixtape business again with a new mixcloud NITcast.

Whereas in the past, there was often a main overriding theme, this mix was basically run on intuition and from a snippet from an old documentary on old London town. In other words, complete and utter guesswork. But still fun to do, as it veers from female centred library and soundtrack music, Industrial post punk and bizarre ’70s modulator synth workouts, to emo 2-step and ghostly acid house and techno. .

In the end I had to trim some really good tunes off the mix to get it down from over 2 hours to a more manageable 90 minutes. Even though I loved it, I have to imagine that there are people who lead busy lives out there. Boring and lifeless, but still busy nonetheless.

So give yourself a good listen to this one, especially if you don’t fancy stuff that is happy, preppy and poppy in life.

For a high quality mp3 of the mix, simply download HERE:

Nordic Interstitial Thresholds – Andskotinn Einmana Jökull Tónlist – Episode 4: the Good, Obedient Icelander…

Well I promised some good posts this week – And I think I’ve managed to fulfil that obligation with a new edition of Nordic Interstitial Thresholds! Truly it is a good day to die, etc…

This episode we’re going back to the all Icelandic ways. And just in time as well. Another national election looms over the coming weeks. And if all the polls are to believed, Iceland is going to make a huuuuuuge fuck up and vote for the guys who landed them in the economic shit in the first place! I’ve gotta hand it to Iceland – they never like to take the easy route.

Again you’re listening to a nice mix of some well known, and not so well-known tunes. A couple of jarring blends on a few occasions here and there as well. You know, one of these days I’m going to get around to having Traktor installed on my laptop, then I can finally be able to align tunes  properly instead of having to work out the BPM in my head. And when that happen, the you’ll all be sorry!!

Hey, if you like what you’re listening and would fancy a nice HQ copy, then simply download the mother by clicking on this link HERE!!

Mixes: Nordic Interstitial Thresholds: The Winter Sacrament…


A new mix is up and running from our brethren at Nordic Interstitial thresholds…..

“The latest episode of Nordic Interstitial Thresholds is a soundtrack to unyielding grip of winter.

A blend of cold sounds and bleak beats that evoke the time when the days are at their shortest and the air cuts the flesh to the bone.

For best effect, switch the lights off in your remote cabin and sit in the corner while it plays…..”

Sounds very chilly indeed. If you like what you hear, then you download a hi-quality version HERE.

Happy listening!
