Slow City Life
"eading the rebellion from his small village of fisherman/electronic producers is Asli. With 'Slow Potion' he takes the cold barren landscape of Iceland, marries it with the deep soul of New York (think Ibadan or Objektivity) and then throws in a hint of banging German minimalism (think Kompakt vs Mobilee). And what comes out is truly a dancefloor masterpiece -- beautiful and at the same time a full 'hands in the air' peaktime banger. Classical strings joined by electronic beats and a throbbing bassline. Lucky for Iceland, even luckier for the world. On the flip side with 'East City Life,' he takes it even deeper. Minimal yet groovy, Asli builds us a perfect track for the late night tripped out sessions that are even more common when you only experience 3 hours a day of sunlight. Us foreigners may not understand what can grow in such little sunlight but whatever it is, it is most certainly psychedelic."
