Gus Gus - Very Important People 12" - 1999

Gus Gus are from Iceland. The only other artist(s) I know from Iceland are Bjork and The Sugarcubes. These guys are electronic oriented, but are perhaps a little more accessible than some of the weirdness Bjork and The Sugarcubes produced, not to take away from their fine work.

This 12" contains four mixes of "Very Important People" which is from their 1999 release "This Is Normal". These are cool songs, and by that I mean cool as in cool jazz. There is definitely some smooth cool jazz things going on in these mixes. In particular I love the first mix by Masters at Work. It's one for the evening with the lights turned low. I also like the 3rd mix by Francois K. Tracks 2 and 4 are okay, but not as good as 1 and 3, at least to me. Though this is almost 10 years old, the music still sounds relevant and current.
