"Islands and Islets is a Berlin-based record label which runs as a daughter imprint to dance-oriented Stockholm LTD, founded by Pär Grindvik. With remixes on pop artists like Lykke Li and Shout Out Louds, Van Rivers produced the first solo album from Karin Dreijer Andersson from The Knife. After a mere 6 months of existence, Islands and Islets is now celebrating with Van Rivers' third release on the label. 'There wasn't just one big inspiration source for these songs, more an idea of a specific sound that I wanted to create,' Van Rivers explains. 'After hours and hours of studio time, playing around with instruments in ways which they might not be meant to be used. I found a way to get my idea out. This release is a pretty good picture of it. And thanks to The Subliminal Kid for coming up with the brilliant idea of throwing all the tambourines we could find into the piano.' His release Easy Street got great response and was charted and played by names like Josh Wink, John Selway and Laurent Garnier. If you're not one of the lucky ones who already discovered Van Rivers' great creations, this moment will be a great one for you. And for all of you others that have been waiting. Here is Pipes & Drums!"
