After beginning the year with a sold out gig by Trentemøller, we’re wrapping up 2017 with another amazing electronic delicacy. Having wowed audiences with its enchanting view of all sorts of electronic music for nearly 20 years now, Icelandic sensation GusGus is coming to Slovenia for the first time during the festive December season. To start us off, DJ Shu Shu, who was last selected by none other than Princess Nokia to support her during her gig here in September, will throw down a warm-up set.
GusGus was founded as a film and acting collective in 1995, with Emiliana Torrini as one of its members. In the second half of the 1990s, the electronic innovators established themselves as one of the most prominent names in electronic music, selling out shows all over the world. Since then, the protégés of the renowned 4AD label fearlessly mastered all sorts of electronic music, from techno, trip-hop and house to trance and pop, leaving their sensuously alluring mark on all of them. No wonder they’ve remixed tracks for Björk, Depeche Mode, Moloko and Sigur Rós, among others.
As of 2016, GusGus’ line-up consists of original members Daniel and Birgir, who proved they haven’t lost their feeling for enticing dancefloor fillers at a phenomenal summer gig in Croatia. The release of their tenth studio album, heralded by pulsing hit ‘Featherlight’, is in the works for this year, not to mention their first gig in Slovenia, in December at Kino Šiška!
